Abstract:

The report contains information and photographs obtained during a preliminary investigation of structural damage caused by the San Fernando Valley, California Earthquake of 9 February 1971. Since the damage was quite widespread, the failures of only a few residential homes, commercial buildings and freeway bridges were inspected. Larger structures visited were a hydraulic fill dam which almost failed completely, two large Veterans Administration Hospital buildings, that collapsed, and the Los Angeles County Olive View Medical Center.
