Abstract:

Discussion centered on three major fields of concern for earthquake engineering research soils, structures, and geologyseismology. Emphasis was given to ongoing research and development directly related to the earthquake analysis for evaluating dam safety. It was observed that there exists reasonable agreement between member agencies as to the methodology for evaluating seismic safety of earthrock-fill and concrete dams. As a result of discussions centered on strong-motion instrumentation and the mutual desire to improve the existing strong-motion data base, the following decisions were made a Request IRCC member agencies to expedite dissemination of strong-motion data, b Contact USCOLD to determine the availability of a compilation of strong-motion data for dam installations worldwide and distribute these to IRCC member agencies, and c Establish liaison to avoid redundancy of strong-motion instrumentation at dams in close proximity of one another.
