Set A:Beam Structures – Set B:Arch Structures – Set C:Cable and Suspension Structures – Set D:Truss Structures – Set E:Domes and Shells – Set F:Columns, Rigid Frames, Grids and Slabs – Set G:Structures Under Construction – Set H:The Structures of Leonhardt, Andrä and Partners – Set J:Earthquake Engineering by V.V. Bertero. Professor Godden added images of seismic retrofit projects on the Berkeley campus (Barker Hall, Central Dining Facility, Seismic Replacement Building, Barrows Hall, and others).

Jan T. Kozak Collection – historical illustrations of earthquakes from a private collection provide more than 1100 macroseismic representations, primarily copies of prints, paintings, book illustrations, and lithographs of historically destructive earthquakes – Jan T. Kozak Image Collection.

Karl V. Steinbrugge Collection. Professor of structural design at the University of California, Berkeley, College of Environmental Design and General Manager of the Earthquake Department of the Pacific Fire Rating Bureau in San Francisco, Karl Steinbrugge’s work included engineering investigations of potential earthquake damage to structures as well as field studies of earthquakes and their effects around the world. The collection features more than 16,000 images of earthquake damage between 1886 and 1990, the largest image collection within NISEE’s earthquake image archive.
