On April 20, 2013, a 6.6 value earthquake with an epicenter in Lushan struck the southern element of the Longmenshan mountain diversity southwest of Chengdu, Sichuan province, and brought on harm to constructions and lifelines. The worst affected components integrated the towns of Lushan, Baoxing, Tianquan, Sheungshizhen, and Taipingzhen, with landslides and rockslides inflicting significant highway closures and hampering emergency reaction efforts. This TCLEE Monograph discusses the subsequent lifeline platforms: electrical energy; water distribution; wastewater therapy; roads and bridges; telecommunications; emergency reaction tools; and crucial and common construction inventory. normal seismology of the development and geotechnical good points of the world are integrated. This monograph may be of curiosity to civil engineers, emergency managers and planners, and executive officers charged with bettering the resilience of lifeline infrastructure platforms in the course of earthquakes, landslides, and rockslides.
