EERI Annotated Slide Collection CD-ROM

The EERI Annotated Slide Collection. This CD-ROM provides access to EERl's entire collection of slides in digitized form including the original supporting text. Representing 60 sets, the images cover all major earthquakes between 1983 and 1995 and include many photographs from earlier earthquakes. Other topics include slides dealing with building and safety, seismic performance of buildings, earthquake resistant design, liquefaction, hazard mitigation, and lessons from previous earthquakes.

The slides can be reproduced as hard copies in black and white or color with excellent results. Users have the option of creating their own customized presentations for a variety of audiences, bypicking and choosing images from various sets and printing transparencies for overhead presentations. This unique CD-ROM saves money and space, representing almost $3,500 worth of slides. It is easy to use and an invaluable research tool for students and practicing engineers, as well as public officials, building inspectors, PTAs, and other citizen and community groups. April 1998.

The Annotated Slide Collection CD-ROM contains the following 60 image sets:

On October 17, 1989, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Northern California on the San Andreas fault system, approximately 50 miles south of San Francisco near the summit of Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The earthquake resulted in 62 deaths, and caused extensive liquefaction, fires, and damage to building and bridge structures. The Loma Prieta earthquake was the most severe earthquake in the continental United States since 1952, and was the largest earthquake on the San Andreas fault since 1906.

LP-II, Engineered Structures
Occurring 50 miles south of San Francisco, the earthquake was not a severe test of buildings designed according to modern earthquake-resistant design criteria. The majority of the damaged structures were either wood-frame dwellings or unreinforced masonry buildings. Annotated, 20 images, contributed by H. S. Lew.

On April 22, 1991, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake rocked the Talamanca Moun-tains in Costa Rica. The primary shock resulted in 58 deaths and over $30 million in damages. The earthquake was followed by more than 1,000 aftershocks larger than magnitude 3. Dramatic geotechnical impacts resulted as the City and Port of Limon were uplifted by more than 1.5 meters. All images were contributed by S. Swan of EQE International.

Performance of and damage to oil installations, tanks, pipelines, and port facilities among others are shown. Annotated, 25 images.

The magnitude 6.8 Spitak earthquake which struck Soviet Armenia on Decem-ber 7, 1988, was one of the worst natural disasters of the twentieth century. It claimed over 25,000 lives and caused damage to 50-100% of building stock in Spitak, Leninakan, and Kirovakan. The earthquake was a disaster of modern precast-concrete-frame-panel buildings constructed in the 1970s and 1980s in the Soviet Union, where the designs initially do not incorporate seismic loads, but are modified locally when they are applied in a seismically active region.

The 8.1 magnitude Michoacan earthquake of September 19, 1985, was one of the most damaging earthquakes to have occurred in North America: thousands died, tens of thousands were injured, damage was in the trillions of pesos, and the social and economic disruption was immeasurable. Most of the casualties and damages occurred in the soft soil area of Mexico City, located about 360 km from the epicentral region. The image sets were developed by an EERI Sub- committee of the Continuing Education Committee.
