Post-earthquake Damage Assessment, Earthquake Damage Repair, and Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of the Washington Monument
(and the Washington National Cathedral, time permitting)


In 2011, the Washington Monument and the Washington National Cathedral were subjected to ground shaking from the Magnitude 5.8 Mineral, Virginia earthquake, whose epicenter was roughly 80 miles from the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Both experienced significant damage, some of which was quite spectacular, that highlights the particular seismic vulnerabilities of historic monumental masonry structures subjected to modest ground shaking. The presentation will cover a broad range of topics related to these iconic damaged structures including some fascinating historical aspects, seismological background, post-earthquake emergency response, earthquake damage survey methods and survey results, seismic vulnerability analysis, repair designs, construction administration and lessons to be learned from the Mineral earthquake about low probability events in the Eastern U.S.

            About Our Speakers:

Martina Driscoll.  Since joining WJE in 1997, Ms. Driscoll has been involved in a wide variety of projects including forensic investigation of existing facilities, repair document preparation and oversight during implementation, material failure investigation and repair, and design peer review and building enclosure commissioning on several newly constructed projects.

Ms. Driscoll served as the project manager for the building enclosure commissioning process at the 1.7 billion dollar campus for the National Geospatial Information Administration - New Campus East project in Springfield, VA and has been involved in several projects involving the National Institute of Building Sciences and the Department of Homeland Security. Ms. Driscoll was also part of the WJE team that developed the earthquake damage repairs of the Washington Monument, following the 2011 Mineral Virginia earthquake. She is currently the project manager for WJE's consulting work on the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum renovation.

She is also the past Chair of ASTM Committee E06.55.09, which developed and published ASTM E2813-12 Standard Practice for Building Enclosure Commissioning of which she was a primary author along with Mr. Dan Lemieux. Ms. Driscoll is also the author or co-author of several papers and presentations on enclosure commissioning, failure investigation, and repair.  Ms. Driscoll received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Maryland, and a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Cornell University.

Terrence Paret. Since joining Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates in 1986, Mr. Paret has performed hundreds of engineering investigations in the U.S. and abroad, focusing on the evaluation of structural performance after damaging events. In addition to investigating structures that have failed due to disasters such as earthquake, flood and fire, he has assessed a wide variety of failures resulting from defective or deteriorated structural elements, construction materials and installations. Notable projects to which Mr. Paret contributed his expertise include the seismic vulnerability assessments of the Washington Monument, the Washington National Cathedral, and the United Nations Secretariat in NYC; assessment of the I‐35W bridge collapse in Minnesota, fire-induced collapse of the MacArthur Maze, post-yield behavior of the San Francisco Bay Bridge anchor rods; and seismic strengthening of various exceptional historic buildings in San Francisco. Mr. Paret was an author or co-author of more than 80 technical papers, and the recipient of a variety of awards for his research and projects from the ASCE, AISC, Association of Preservation Technology International, California Preservation Foundation, International Concrete Repair Institute, SEAoC, and SEAoNC.
