Abstract

The International Workshop on Strong-Motion Earthquake Instrument Arrays was held May 2-5, 1978 at the East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. The Workshop was organized by a Steering Committee appointed by the International Association for Earthquake Engineering. This volume is the product of the combined efforts of those in attendance. The goal of the Workshop was to develop a workable plan for the possible future deployment of dense strong-motion earthquake instrument arrays with primary emphasis on ground motion studies. Three potential areas of array application were considered; source mechanism studies, wave propagation studies and studies of local effects. In order to achieve its stated goal, the Workshop was organized into five working subgroups. The areas covered by the subgroups were: favorable array locations, array design for source mechanism and wave propagation studies, array design for local effects studies, array construction and operation, and implementation. The reports of the individual subgroups are incorporated as chapters in this volume. Experts in earthquake engineering and seismology were invited from all over the world to participate in the Workshop. Those individuals with specific expertise necessary for the deliberations of a particular subgroup were invited to serve as working members of that subgroup. In addition, a number of individuals were invited as Workshop observers in order to insure a balanced geographical and technical representation.
