• A comparison of seismic site response methods 

    Kottke, Albert Richard (2010-08)
    Local soil conditions influence the characteristics of earthquake ground shaking and these effects must be taken into account when specifying ground shaking levels for seismic design. These effects are quantified via site ...
  • Issues related to site property variability and shear strength in site response analysis 

    Griffiths, Shawn Curtis (2015-08)
    Nonlinear site response analyses are generally preferred over equivalent linear analyses for soft soil sites subjected to high-intensity input ground motions. However, both nonlinear and equivalent linear analyses often ...
  • Topographic amplication of seismic motion 

    Poursartip, Babak; 0000-0001-5667-4520 (2017-05-09)
    Seismic hazard assessment relies increasingly on the numerical simulation of ground motion, since recent advances in numerical methods and computer architectures have made it ever more practical to obtain the surface ...
