Join the chapter for an interesting and lively debate as to whether the performance of engineered structures to the strong shaking in Chile was a success or failure…

As we continue to see the immediate and long-term effects of large earthquakes around the world, the perception of building response is evolving. Our panel of experts visited Chile following the M 8.8 earthquake and will discuss the definition of “success” with perspective of past earthquakes.  All audience members will have the opportunity to join in the debate and discussion!

Panel members:
Joe Maffei (Rutherford and Chekene)
Jonathan Bray (UC Berkeley)
Jack Moehle (UC Berkeley)

Moderator: Chris Poland (Degenkolb Engineers)
