A Look Back, a Look Forward: Lessons Applied 30 Years after Loma Prieta
October 18, 2019 | 1-5PM Program; 5-7PM Networking Reception
SJSU College of Engineering Alumni Room (285-287) SPACE IS LIMITED
Thirty years ago the San Andreas Fault ruptured near Loma Prieta Peak, creating the largest urban earthquake in over 80 years. The M 6.9 earthquake took 63 lives and injured another 3,757. Many of those due to the destroyed urban infrastructure, such as the Cypress structure on I-880 in Oakland, and the collapse of homes in San Francisco's Marina District. These catastrophes provided civil engineers and public policy leaders with a multitude of lessons to apply in the event of another "Killer Quake."
Join MTI and San Jose State University's (SJSU) College of Engineering as we welcome Dale Alan Cox, US Geological Survey, Project Manager for Science Application for Risk Reduction, to deliver the pivotal keynote address. MTI's Deputy Director of the National Transportation Security Center will chair the discussion with Drs. Guna Selvaduray and Steven Vukazich of SJSU's Material and Civil Engineering Departments and Ash Padwal Chief Risk Officer of Allied Telesis leading panels on changes over the last 30 years that have enhanced seismic safety, as well as future developments needed to improve the Bay Area's earthquake resilience.
