Abstract: This report summarizes lectures and discussions by Prof. N. N. Ambraseys, Imperial College, London, during his visit to the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) from 27 April to 4 May 1973. Prof. Ambraseys' lectures on engineering seismology were attended by representatives of Corps of Engineers District and Division offices and the Office, Chief of Engineers. These lectures are summarized in Part I herein. Discussions of geological and geophysical aspects and field investigations relevant to earthquake were held with WES personnel. The sequence of the discussions followed a list of discussion items that had been previously submitted to Prof. Ambraseys. Discussions also covered the application of laboratory test data in analytical procedures, current research in earthquake engineering seismology at Imperial College, Ambraseys' method for computing dam displacements, and other topics related to earthquake engineering. The discussions with WES personnel are summarized in Part II.
