Proceedings of the Seventh China-Japan-US Trilateral Symposium on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering, held in Shanghai, China, June 1–4, 2016. Sponsored by the Shanghai Institute of Disaster Prevention and Relief, China; Tongji University, Shanghai, China; Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China; International Society of Lifeline and Infrastructure Earthquake Engineering; Kanazawa University, Japan; Lifeline Network Kansai (LiNK), Japan; Japan Ductile Iron Pipe Association; and the Infrastructure Resilience Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

This Infrastructure Resilience Publication (IRP) contains 77 peer-reviewed papers covering recent developments in lifeline earthquake engineering involving water, wastewater, gas and liquid fuels, electrical power, telecommunications, and transportation systems.

Topics include: seismicity, ground motions, and site effects; seismic performance, modeling, and evaluation; design of water supplies, sewage, electric power, gas and liquid fuel, telecommunications, and transportation systems and their components; seismic reliability and post-earthquake serviceability, recovery, and resilience of lifeline systems; lifeline interactions; tunnels and underground structures; geotechnical and structural earthquake behavior related to lifelines; seismic testing and analysis for lifeline components and foundations; tsunami impacts; and a special session on bridge impact loads.

These papers will be of use to practitioners, researchers, and students interested in international approaches to seismic resilience.
