How Induced Earthquakes Are Making Us Rethink the Challenges of  Earthquake Engineering

This presentation examines the ongoing human-caused seismicity in Oklahoma, Kansas and other parts of

the central U.S. from an earthquake engineering perspective. Key questions to be answered include: Are

these earthquakes different from natural (tectonic) earthquakes in important ways for earthquake

engineers? Are these earthquakes large enough to cause damage to buildings and infrastructure? What is

the impact of these earthquakes on seismic hazard and risk?
