Offers 53 case studies of specific buildings evaluated using the ATC-20 Rapid Evaluation procedure. The 53 case studies include 21 from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and 12 from the 1994 Northridge event. Each case study is illustrated with photos and describes how a building was inspected and evaluated for life safety, and includes a completed safety assessment form and placard (INSPECTED, RESTRICTED USE, OR UNSAFE). The report is intended to be used as a training and reference manual for building officials, building inspectors, civil and structural engineers, architects, diaster workers, and others who may be asked to perform safety evaluations after an earthquake.
