Missing Piece: Improving Seismic Design and Construction Practices

Library Holdings.

This report defines a much-expanded problem-focused knowledge development, synthesis and transfer program to improve seismic design and construction practices. The report was developed to provide a framework for eliminating the technology transfer gap that has emerged within the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) that limits the adaptation of basic research knowledge into practice. This gap was identified during the NEHRP strategic planning process undertaken by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) from 1998 to 2001.
