Projects : Task Order 20
Ground Motion and Building Performance Data From the 2010 Chile Earthquake
The primary purpose of this task is to develop a cost-effective and event-specific web-based data repository for the Chile earthquake that is based upon publicly available information that is available from U.S. and Chilean post-earthquake reconnaissance team members.
The proposed Chile earthquake repository shall contain the following types of information; ground motion data (both directly recorded, e.g. digitized accelerograms, and derived, e.g. response spectra); building inventory (geospatial information, age, story height, occupancy, and other parameters) from the key earthquake impacted regions; structural drawings (AutoCAD or PDF format) from buildings that were impacted; photos of impacted buildings, accompanied by appropriate descriptive details; mapped structural damage (crack patterns, damaged zones) from damaged buildings; Computers & Structures Inc. (SCI)-ETABS (or equivalent) models of buildings that have been analyzed; instrumented building site boring logs, foundation performance); public domain literature (PDF); bibliographic information; and, links to other relevant websites.
The Task Order 20 project will be conducted over a 16-month period, concluding on January 26, 2012.
