Abstract

The Northridge (California) earthquake of 17 January 1994 generated numerous strong-motion records that are unique because they have: (a) very high peak accelerations and (b) long-duration pulses. Using digitized data available to date, the significant aspects of the strong-motions are preliminarily reviewed and their impact on earthquake engineering are discussed.

Northridge (California) Earthquake: Unique Ground Motions

St. Louis, Missouri

The Northridge (California) earthquake of 17 January 1994 generated numerous strong-motion records that are unique because they have: (a) very high peak accelerations and (b) long-duration pulses. Using digitized data available to date, the significant aspects of the strong-motions are preliminarily reviewed and their impact on earthquake engineering are discussed.
