Abstract

The 1906 San Francisco earthquake provided the first real impetus for establishing building design codes and safety standards. Subsequent major California earthquakes led to additional seismological understanding and engineering response in the form of enhanced buiding design codes. Nonetheless, the process to incorporate good seismic design and mitigation efforts has been slow. Even in the absence of catastrophe, it is still important to guard against a false sense of security
