Chapters on geotechnical and strong ground motion, and performance of lifelines in hospitals are also included. For each of the lifelines, facility damage is described and, where information is available, the effect of facility performance is discussed. Reports identify lessons learned and recommendations for research."--Jacket."@en ;
