Forty-one cases of observed damage to rock tunnels from earthquake motions and movement are compared to calculated peak surface motions to determine thresholds of damage. No damage was observed below calculated surface accelerations of 0. 2 g. A critical assessment of the study is employed to establish what reserach is necessary to refine analytical approaches. 15 refs.
