Proceedings of the Sixth U.S. Conference and Workshop on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering, TCLEE 2003: Advancing Mitigation Technologies and Disaster Response, held in Long Beach, California, August 10-13, 2003.

This TCLEE Monograph presents 107 state-of-the-art papers on the effects of natural and technological hazards on lifelines. The conference, held on the 10th anniversary of the 1993 Long Beach earthquake, presented new research on the seismic performance of lifelines, new standards and codes that have been developed, and major lifeline projects that have been rehabilitated, designed, and constructed. The lifeline performance of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline during the November 3, 2002, Denali Fault earthquake demonstrates how lifelines properly designed and constructed for severe earthquake ground motions can perform well.

Topics include:

  • lifeline management and policy issues;
  • transportation system preparedness, response, and recovery;
  • retrofit and policy issues with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system;
  • post-earthquake investigations and lifeline performance during earthquakes;
  • lifeline guides and codes;
  • performance of ports and wharves;
  • water and waste water systems and components;
  • the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the 2002 Denali Fault Earthquake;
  • electric power guidelines and performance of equipment;
  • design, mitigation, and performance of underground pipelines;
  • seismic hazard and risk issues;
  • seismic risk analysis of highway systems;
  • geotechnical lifeline issues; and
  • innovative mitigation of bridges.
