Earthquake Engineering

Earthquake engineering is defined as the scientific branch devoted to the protection of society from earthquake hazards. More specifically earthquake engineering is defined as the behavior study of structures and geostructures during and after an earthquake. Geotechpedia provides a plethora of papers concerning earthquake engineering.

<p>Although numerous studies have been conducted, a recommended practice for incorporation of earthquake loading into the geotechnical design considerations for subsea structures such as wells, manifolds, and PLETs, and pipelines is not consistent. Industry ...

<p>During earthquake there is a considerable damage to structures which are above the ground level as well as to those structures which are completely underground. Several studies were carried out for analysing dynamic behavior of these structures. The underground ...

<p>Here we search for dynamically triggered earthquakes in Canada following global main shocks between 2004 and 2014 with MS &gt; 6, depth &lt; 100 km, and estimated peak ground velocity &gt; 0.2 cm/s. We use the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) earthquake ...

<p>Ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) relate ground-motion intensity measures to variables describing earthquake source, path, and site effects. We select from many available GMPEs those models recommended for use in seismic hazard assessments in the ...

<p>The results of this study show that failure of the examined caisson quay wall is induced by the deformation of the foundation and backfill soils. For all the analyzed remedial methods, improving the top 10 to 15 m of foundation soil under the wall and first ...

<p>During severe earthquake shaking, soil liquefaction is a major concern for structures constructed on saturated loose sandy soils. A large number of civil engineering structures were damaged due to liquefaction during huge recent earthquakes in Christchurch. ...

<p>The paper demonstrates that whereas often in seismic geotechnical design it is not realistically feasible to design with ample factor of safety against failure as is done in static design, an &ldquo;engineering&rdquo; apparent seismic factor of safety less ...
