Lessons on Return to Function After the 2018 Cook Inlet Earthquake

September 30, 2021
Katherine Johnson, Siamak Sattar, Christopher Segura, Steven McCabe
The magnitude 7.1 Cook Inlet Earthquake of November 2018 greatly affected Anchorage, AK area residents. Although shaking likely did not exceed the hazard level for which most newer buildings are designed, disruption to normal operations was significant due

Activities and Lessons Learned from ACI Committee 133 - Disaster Reconnaissance

September 13, 2020
Lucas A. Laughery, Aishwarya Y. Puranam, Christopher Segura, Anahid A. Behrouzi
ACI Committee 133 Disaster Reconnaissance was established with the mission of reporting on the effects of major disasters on reinforced concrete (RC) structures. ACI 133 members monitor natural and manmade disasters worldwide to identify events that affect

Social and Economic Components of Resilient Multi-Hazard Building Design

October 3, 2019
Katherine Johnson, Juan Fung, Siamak Sattar, Christopher Segura, Therese P. McAllister, Steven McCabe
In 2017, U.S. damages from natural hazard events exceeded $300B, suggesting that current targets for building performance do not sufficiently mitigate loss. The significant costs borne by individuals, insurers, and government do not include impacts from

Building Design Considerations to Support Immediate Occupancy Performance Objectives

June 16, 2019
Siamak Sattar, Christopher Segura, Katherine Johnson, Therese P. McAllister, Steven McCabe
The intent of current building codes for typical commercial and residential buildings is to safeguard against loss of life to building occupants by minimizing the probability of structural collapse during natural hazard events. However, current codes do

Research Needs to Support Immediate Occupancy Building Performance Following Natural Hazard Events

August 21, 2018
Siamak Sattar, Therese P. McAllister, Katherine J. Johnson, Christopher T. Clavin, Christopher L. Segura, Steven L. McCabe, Juan F. Fung, Leslie Abrahams, Emily Sylak-Glassman , Marc L. Levitan, Kenneth W. Harrison, John L. Harris
The performance of buildings in our communities depends on multiple factors including the availability of supporting infrastructure, the original design, the current condition and capacity to resist hazard impacts, and the ability to recover functionality

Flexural Compression Capacity of Thin Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls

June 25, 2018
Christopher L. Segura, Carlos Arteta, John Wallace
Stability of slender reinforced concrete walls has become an issue of interest for researchers since observations of their performance in recent earthquakes indicated that code compliant walls may be vulnerable to brittle compression failure and rebar
