The 11th Joint Meeting of the United States-Japan Panel on Fire Research and Safety was held on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, October 19-24, 1989. Some disruption of the meeting resulted from the October 17 earthquake. The epicenter was about 60 miles southeast of San Francisco, in the Loma Prieta mountains near Santa Cruz. Thus, some of the papers were not presented, but are included in this volume. This volume comprises a total of 6 progress reports and 30 supporting papers in 3 areas: Risk, Hazard and Evacuation; Fire and Toxicity Chemistry; and Fire and Smoke Physics. The next Panel Meeting will be held in Japan in the autumn of 1992.
