Earthquake Considerations in Earth Dam Design
In 1963, the writer was engaged by the State of California Department of Water Resources to make a study of the influence of the hazard of earthquakes on the design of embankment type...

Earthquake Hazard Investigative Procedures for Central United States Waterworks
The vulnerability assessment of Central United States waterworks for earthquake hazards is a developing engineering practice for civil engineers in Arkansas, Missouri and states close...

Landslide Hazard Analysis for Pipeline Design, Northeast Utah

Preclosure Seismic Hazards and Their Impact on Site Suitability of Yucca Mountain, Nevada

Risk Assessments for the Design of Subsurface Openings
A probabilistic approach was introduced to assess the risk of structural instability due to rock joint systems in rock mass, where subsurface openings are excavated, such openings as shafts,...

Remote Sensing for Seismic Hazard Assessment of a Proposed Nuclear Power Station, North Wales, UK
During the seismic hazard assessment for a proposed nuclear power station in North Wales, UK, a remote sensing study was carried out in conjunction with other, wide-ranging geological...

The Use of Computer Mapping to Establish Historical Erosion Rates and Coastal Cosntruction Setbacks in New Jersey
New Jersey's Rules on Coastal Zone Management define coastal policies which guide public decisions about significant proposed development and management of resources of New Jersey's coastal...

Natural Disaster Reduction Plan at FERC
At the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), natural disasters of concern are caused by three major natural hazards, i.e., floods, earthquake, and droughts. These three hazards...

Seismic Hazards for Memphis Water Delivery Systems
Estimation of seismic hazards is the first essential task in performing the seismic risk assessment of a municipal water delivery system. This paper presents the evaluation of seismic...

Seismic Vulnerability of Memphis Water System Components
The vulnerability of selected components of the Memphis Water System is evaluated herein for a 7.5 moment magnitude earthquake within the southern portion of the New Madrid Seismic Zone....

Liquefaction Hazard Analysis for Design of the Kern River Pipeline at the Muddy River Crossing, Southern Nevada
The 91.4-cm (36-in.) diameter Kern River natural gas transmission pipeline will cross the Muddy River in Moapa Valley, about 5 km west of Glendale, Nevada, in an area of relatively low...

Seismic Hazard Analysis of Buried Pipeline for Design
This paper concerns mainly the following three items on seismic hazard analysis of buried pipeline for design: (1) effects of pipeline length on risk, (2) effects of local site conditions...

A Methodology for Assessing the Risk of Hazardous Materials Release Following Earthquakes—A Demonstration Study for the Los Angeles Area
A methodology for estimating the risk of post-earthquake hazardous materials releases was developed for the National Science Foundation and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering...

California's Coastal Hazards Policies: A Critique

Multiple Event Considerations for Postclosure Seismic Hazard Evaluations at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Postclosure waste canister design requirements suggest the values used for seismic design have less than a 10% chance of being exceeded in a 1,000 year postclosure period. Considerably...

Seismic Hazards Associated with a Major San Diego Lifeline Corridor
Evidence for multiple Holocene earthquakes on the Rose Canyon fault zone in San Diego sheds new light on the seismic hazards of San Diego, and in particular, a major lifeline corridor....

Seismic Hazard Along a Crude Oil Pipeline in the Event of an 1811-1812 Type New Madrid Earthquake
This paper presents an assessment of the seismic hazard that exists along a major crude oil pipeline (pipeline 22). An 1811-1812 type New Madrid earthquake with moment magnitude 8.2 is...

A Re-Evaluation of Earthquake Hazards Within the California Coastal Zone: Lessons from the Loma Prieta Earthquake
The 7.1 magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake occurred on October 17, 1989, had a duration of 15 seconds, and took 62 lives. Among the lessons learned from this earthquake with regard to offshore...

The Impact of the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake on Coastal Bluffs and Implications for Land Use Planning
The October 17, 1989, Loma Prieta earthquake caused bluff failure along 100 miles of coastline between San Francisco and central Monterey Bay in a variety of rock types and slope conditions....
