  • Survey of Historic Adobe Buildings after the 1994 Northridge  
 Earthquake, 1994-1996

This project was partially supported by the Getty Conservation Institute and
the resulting report became one of their publications. The project team was
led by E. Leroy Tolles and included Anthony Crosby, Fred Webster, and
Edna E. Kimbro. The study of earthquake-damaged adobe buildings
documented in this study revealed details of their performance under stress
that are essential for determining the means for retrofitting these types of
structures.The publication of this research represents a comprehensive
reference for documentation methods and details of damage from an
earthquake to adobe buildings.
