Preliminary comment on damage to buildings in the Inangahua earthquake

  • Bruce H. Falconer

Abstract

This paper is presented for discussion at the N. Z. I. E. Conference in February 1969; and it appears as a prelude to the publication, in a special Bulletin of the Society, of a Preliminary Report on the Inangahua Earthquake from an overall viewpoint with contributions by many authors. Time available, and the sequence of publication, has not permitted the preparation of a detailed technical report upon building damage at this stage. This paper reviews, primarily, building damage near the epicentre, and includes a set of 36 photographs taken by the author at Murchison, Inangahua and Reefton.
