Register for the 2015 EERI Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel from March 31 through April 3, 2015. The theme is "Old Cities, New Earthquakes" and the program will highlight the particular seismic hazards and vulnerability of older structures common to so much of central and eastern North America. There will be unique sessions providing updates on EERI special projects, such as Learning From Earthquakes and the School Earthquake Safety Initiative.
The Concrete Coalition Database features case studies of over 50 buildings in 12 countries, an intuitive user interface, and extensive search criteria. Each case study includes summary information, photos, sketches, drawings, and information on retrofits. The Database also identifies over 50 design and construction characteristics that may have contributed to the observed damage. Start exploring the Concrete Coalition Database. The Concrete Coalition, a project of EERI, is a network of individuals and organizations that works to understand the risk associated with non-ductile concrete buildings.
The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is a national, nonprofit, technical society of engineers, geoscientists, architects, planners, public officials, and social scientists. EERI members include researchers, practicing professionals, educators, government officials, and building code regulators. The objective of EERI is to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering; improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment; and advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.
