Abstract

Following the January 1994 Northridge Earthquake in Southern California, the authors traveled to Los Angeles and surveyed the earthquake damage region. Subsequently, seismologic, geologic and ground motion data were compiled and evaluated. This paper presents our observations and evaluation of: geologic and soil effects; soil-structure interaction; liquefaction; slope failures and rock slides; and ground deformations.

The Northridge Earthquake of 1994: Ground Motions and Geotechnical Aspects

St. Louis, Missouri

Following the January 1994 Northridge Earthquake in Southern California, the authors traveled to Los Angeles and surveyed the earthquake damage region. Subsequently, seismologic, geologic and ground motion data were compiled and evaluated. This paper presents our observations and evaluation of: geologic and soil effects; soil-structure interaction; liquefaction; slope failures and rock slides; and ground deformations.
