University College London Civil & Environmental Engineering Introduction • In the past 3 centuries over 3 million people have died due to earthquakes and earthquake related disasters. • The economic losses estimated for the period 1929-1950 are in excess of US$10 billion. • 2/3 of the earths crust is seismically active, which means that about 1,000,000,000 people are living in areas of the world that are prone to earthquakes.

University College London Civil & Environmental Engineering Introduction For more developed countries the economic loss due to an earthquake can be enormous even if the death toll is fairly low (Coburn and Spence 1992): e.g. Kobe Earthquake (Ms 7.0, Japan, 1995) killed 5,420 people but caused US$ 150 billion economic loss Earthquake Engineering
