L.A./ Northridge cracked moment frames 1998

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     After the Northridge earthquake, L.A. mandated all moment frame buildings
near the epicenter be evaluated for cracked/ damaged joints. There were a few
hundred involved.
     Can someone post the results?  Please expand on current plans on this
subject.I also remember some talk of expanding this to residential highrises
along Whilshire blvd, was this done?
     Thanks in advance.
