This proceedings, Lifeline Earthquake Engineering in the Central and Eastern U.S., is a collection of papers presented at the 1992 American Society of Civil Engineers International Convention & Exposition in New York, New York, September 14-17, 1992. The papers are grouped into three categories: water supply, transportation systems, and energy distribution. Earthquake hazards and potential losses are discussed on both regional and local levels. Many of the studies focus on the New Madrid seismic zone. Mitigation of damage from major earthquakes with long recurrence intervals pose different types of problems than those encountered in the west. Environmental impact and associated costs are discussed for seismically damaged oil transmission lines. Mitigation approaches are presented for water systems and oil pipelines.
