This publication is the Proceedings of the 30th Joint Meeting of the U.S..-Japan on Wind and Seismic Effects. The meeting was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD during 12-15 May 1998. The Proceedings include the agenda, list of panel members, Panel Resolutions, the 45 technical papers written for this joint meeting, and the Panel's 11-Task Reports.Thirty-nine oral presentations centered on six themes: 1. Special Session in Celebration of the Panel's 30th Anniversary, 2. Storm and Surge Tsunamis, 3. Earthquake Engineering, 4. Joint Cooperative Research Programs, 5. Real Time Information Acquisition and Dissemination, and 6. Wind Engineering. The Panel provides the vehicle to exchange technical data and information on design and construction of civil engineering lifelines, buildings, waterfront, and coastal structures. Panel findings continue to influence ongoing structural engineering research and contribute to the revision and creation of U.S. and Japanese building codes and standards.
