EERI/IAEE World Housing Encyclopedia

This online Encyclopedia of Housing Construction Types is a joint project between two prominent earthquake engineering organizations. It is intended to help engineers make buildings in regions of high seismic activity less susceptible to damage, and hopefully save lives. A large amount of housing information is given for many different countries. Hazard maps show areas that are most at risk. Building descriptions describe common construction types and structural features, and suggest seismic strengthening technologies that can be implemented. Much of the encyclopedia's material is contributed by architects and engineers around the world, and more volunteers are welcome.
