Lessons Learned Over Time, Volume III: Bridge Repairs After the 1995 Kobe Earthquake/The 1995 Kobe Earthquake as a Trigger for Implementing New Seismic Design Technologies

The two papers in this volume illustrate how the January 17, 1995 Kobe earthquake was a catalyst for rapid change: 1) "Bridge Repairs After the 1995 Kobe (Hyogo-ken Nanbu) Earthquake," by Caltrans Bridge Engineer Mark Yashinsky, surveys the damage to bridges and highway transportation structures. It describes how the need to retrofit to an improved seismic standard drove immediate research to determine appropriate criteria and methods for repair and retrofit. 2) "The 1995 Kobe Earthquake as a Trigger for Implementing New Seismic Design Technologies in Japan," by structural engineers Peter W. Clark and Ian D. Aiken, with input from Japanese colleagues M. Nakashima, M. Miyazaki, and M. Midorikawa, provides a broad perspective on the implementation of isolation technologies in the wake of the Kobe earthquake. January 2000.

LESSONS LEARNED OVER TIME SERIES

The Lessons Learned Over Time series, part of EERI's Learning From Earthquakes program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, was established to capture and disseminate lessons that may not become apparent until some years after an earthquake, or which bear reevaluation in light of what we know today. These types of retrospective studies can help us improve disaster preparation and recovery by contributing to our understanding of earthquakes, their effects, and how we recover from them.
