      Earthquakes are one of the Earth’s most destructive forces — the seismic waves throughout the ground can destroy buildings, take lives, and costs tremendous amounts of money for loss and repair. According to the National Earthquake Information Center, there is an average of 20, earthquakes each year —16 of them being major disasters. The goal of the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage Project is to develop guidelines that provide a sound technical basis for use by engineers, contractors, owners, the insurance industry, building officials, and others in the post-earthquake context.
