The disaster here is the earthquake near Los Angeles, which left 58 dead, destroyed more thanbuildings, collapsed freeways, and started fires. The geologic reasons for the temblor, the resulting chaos, the thrilling rescues, the plans for future safety, and the likelihood for more quakes are all explained clearly and vividly/5(2).

Abstract. Natural and man-made disasters have caused a significant impact on residential buildings worldwide. The damaged buildings stay unoccupiable for a period of time, called the chapter introduces a new methodology to predict the downtime and the resilience of building structures using Fuzzy by: 2.

Earthquakes may cause structural and nonstructural damage during seismic excitations. Structural damage consists of distress induced in structural components of lateral and gravity-load-resisting systems, such as beams, columns, load-bearing walls, and shear walls, as well as horizontal diaphragms, such as slabs and roofs.
