In a report titled, “The Japan Earthquqake and Tsunami and What They Mean for the U.S.”, by Michael Mahoney, a geophysicist for FEMA’s National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program (NEHRP), the author notes that during the Japanese event, engineered buildings remained upright while older wood residential buildings did experience collapse. In addition, non-structural components (such as piping) did not fare as well and continue to provide challenges during earthquake events.
