The volume contains seven keynote papers presented at a symposium on the earthquake and includes an overview written by the committee offering recommendations to improve seismic safety and earthquake awareness in parts of the country susceptible to earthquakes.All seven of the 500-kV live-tank circuit breakers in the strongly shaken areas of the Loma Prieta earthquake (the Metcalf and Moss Landing substations) failed ... The seismic ruggedness of 500-kV dead-tank circuit breakers was demonstrated.
