Abstract:

Since 1982 there have been strong-motion seismic recording systems to measure ground motions and the resulting responses of representative engineered Army Structures during strong local earthquakes. Two of these systems are installed in the Army hospitals on Presidio of San Francisco and at Fort Ord, CA. On 17 October 1989 a major seismic event, the Loma Prieta earthquake, occurred near these California-based strong-motion systems. Data from the Loma Prieta earthquake are published in this report. Also included is information about the seismic instrumentation systems that gathered the data, the hospitals in which the systems are installed, and a summary of the damage observed to those structures. mm
