August 1, This report examines damage to HUD-affiliated multifamily housing from the Northridge Earthquake, which registered a wave magnitude of Sixty-nine HUD-affiliated sites, totaling multi-family buildings and over 10, living.

Performance of HUD-Assisted Properties During the January 17,Northridge Earthquake analyzes HUD-affiliated, multifamily residences that sustained damage in the earthquake, finding that only 3 percent of the units examined were rendered uninhabitable.

Consistent with the findings of HUD's broader assessment of residential structures, the study also observed poor structural performance. Get this from a library. Performance of HUD-assisted properties during the January 17,Northridge earthquake.

Well-Known Investigations. Northridge Earthquake During the aftermath of the January Northridge earthquake, a number of Exponent engineers volunteered as Safety Assessment Evaluators with California’s Office of Emergency Services.

In addition to our work with the State of California, as well as the Federal Emergency Management. The performance of these newer hospitals in the Northridge Earthquake proved that the HSSA was responsible for dramatically improving the performance of hospital buildings (Figure 1).

While no buildings constructed after the HSSA were red-tagged, 24% of the pre-HSSA hospital buildings were red-tagged, meaning the buildings had to be. During the 17 January Northridge, California, earthquake, a moderate earthquake, alleged non structural cladding panels and connections unintentionally participated in lateral load-resisting structural systems.

As a consequence, unanticipated cladding damage occurred, including life-safety problems when dozens of panels fell and others were left hanging precariously. During the January 17,Northridge earthquake, a m diameter corrugated metal pipe was subjected to 90 m of extensive lateral crushing failure at the Lower San Fernando Dam.

The dam and outlet works were reconstructed after the San Fernando Earthquake.
