Abstract:

Prepared by the Committee on Ports and Harbors Lifelines of the Technical Council on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering of ASCE.

Hyogo-Ken Nanbu Earthquake of January 17, 1995: A Post-Earthquake Reconnaissance of Port Facilities describes the seismic performance of ports in the Osaka Bay region of Japan following the Hyogo-Ken Nanbu earthquake. A team of investigators observed and evaluated the seismic performance of the port facilities and then held numerous data-gathering meetings with representatives from relevant port authorities, engineering consulting firms, construction companies, universities, and private research organizations in Japan. The investigation was carried out over a 10-day period (February 18-27, 1995) and focused primarily on the Port of Kobe, the Port of Osaka and, to a lesser degree, the Kansai Airport. This first-hand documentation of perishable data will enhance future engineering and research work at these and other ports around the world.
