This paper presents a number of case histories illustrating the benefits and costs of certain types of engineering measurement and testing, with a focus on land-based structures. The benefits are described mainly in terms of safety, economy, and environment. The costs are related to the amount of data collected and processed. The paper concludes with some technical and financial guidance for clients, owners, consultants, and contractors, who may be considering these types of activities. J.R. Maguire

With the rapid increase in urban development and in population, habitable areas that are not already densely populated are on the decline. For example, whereas in 1950, there were only 7 urban areas in the world with more than 5m inhabitants, this number rose to 34 in 1980 and is expected to rise further to 60 by the year 2000 (Mehta and Motiero, 1993). This, coupled with the increasing importance of corporate insurance and risk management, has led to heightened awareness of the importance of earthquake risk assessment and management of the disastrous effects of this natural hazard.
