Modern Structures in the 1906 Quake (Not from original site)

Computers & Structures, Inc.

A series of QuickTime movies illustrating the deformation of modern Californian structures subjected to the 1906 earthquake. The deformation, exaggerated 100 times, is shown for the Golden Gate Bridge, the SF International Airport, and the San Francisco Marriot. Los Angeles City Hall is also simulated in order to show how buildings further from the epicenter were affected.
