Abstract

This review is a brief survey of the
 present status of Earthquake Engineering. It contains information on earthquake hazards, main Earthquake Engineering problems, safety of structures under the action of earthquakes, Earthquake Engineering research and education, and international collaboration.

The review is prepared in accordance with
 a decision by the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering to set up a working group for dealing with “Information on Earthquake Engineering”. The decision to
 create this working group was supported by the "Comite de Liaison", which co-ordinates the activity of several international associations dealing with Structural Engineering, such as
 the International Association for Bridge and
 Structural Engineering, the European Committee for Concrete, the International Federation for Prestressing, the International Council for Building Research Studies and Documentation, the European Convention of the Associations for Steel Construction, and the International Association for Shell Structures.
