Abstract

Recent large earthquakes in Japan including the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake caused not only damage and collapse of structures due to strong ground motions, but also washout of structures due to the subsequent giant tsunami and huge landslide. It is expected that the damage and the economic loss resulting from the anticipated Nankai Trough earthquake would be larger than those resulting from these two recent large earthquakes. Although the quantifications of risk and resilience associated with damage to structures and civil infrastructure systems under extreme events is still an important research topic in the structural engineering community, research studies on risk reduction and resilience enhancement in terms of structural control, restoration of structures and post-disaster debris management must be also developed. These research topics and studies are the main topic of this paper.
