The Jan. 17, 1995, Hyogoken-Nanbu Earthquake was one of the worst disasters to hit Japan in almost half a century. It has been compared in its impact to the great Kanto (Tokyo) Earthquake of 1923. The Kobe-Osaka region held many similarities in its geologic and tectonic setting to many areas along the West Coast, and possibly, other areas of the U.S. A geotechnical reconnaissance to identify the relevant problems and issues was organized. This report provides a timely, first-hand overview of the type and extent of the geotechnical aspects of the damage.Koichi Akai, Jonathan D. Bray, John T. Christian, Ross W. Boulanger. CHAPTER ... Figure 5.1 presents a schematic diagram illustrating the general arrangement of the dams together with a general picture of the performance of the structures.
