Abstract

Earthquakes are greatly feared because tremendous forces can be unleashed with little or no warning. If strong earthquakes last more than several seconds, they can cause widespread destruction. Fortunately, most earthquakes are not too strong, do not last too long, and consequently cause little or no permanent damage to well designed structures. Hooray for architectural engineers!
