Serial Information: Journal of the Technical Councils of ASCE, 1979, Vol. 105, Issue 2, Pg. 343-362

Document Type: Journal Paper


Twenty seven research needs were presented at a workshop sponsored by ASCE, and are described and cross-referenced. The needs are referenced by type of research, area of impact, appropriate personnel, and appropriate sponsor. Topics include risk modelling, ground motion effects, equipment and facility response, and system analysis. Research types include analytical, experimental, data collection and product development. Areas of impact include the generation of analysis tools, data assembly, design procedure development, and planning methodologies. The aim is to acquaint researchers, research users, and research sponsors with a spectrum of research topics which are perceived to be of particular merit.
