This volume of Seismic Engineering: Research and Practice contains papers from twenty-two sessions of the 1989 ASCE Structures Congress. These papers represent a wide-ranging interest in this field of seismic engineering. Papers were contributed not only by both ASCE's Structures and Engineering Mechanics Divisions; but, by the Structural Engineers Association of California; the International Structural Consultants Association; the Japan Structural Consultants Association; and by professionals in Taiwan. This variety of sources enable the coverage of a broad range of seismic engineering topics including: lessons learned from past earthquakes, evaluation and upgrade of existing structures, dynamic testing and monitoring of structures, design and analysis of special structures including bridges, dams, and liquid storage tanks and new approaches to earthquake-resistant design including base isolation.

Subject Headings: Earthquake engineering | Seismic tests | Structural engineering | Consulting services | Earthquake resistant structures | Seismic design | Professional societies | Dynamic structural analysis
