DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKES

Speaker: Lisa Shusto, Exponent Failure Analysis Associates

On Tuesday, August 18, 1999, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey, near 
Ismit, an industrial city of about 1 million people.  The earthquake lasted 
45 seconds and was felt over thousands of square miles of Turkey's most 
densely populated regions. Taiwan also experienced a 7.6 magnitude earthquake 
on September 21, 1999.

Exponent Failure Analysis Associates sent a reconnaissance team of engineers 
to both countries to study the nature and extent of damage to structures and 
industrial facilities.  Highlights from these trips will be presented.
