METHODOLOGY FOR ESTIMATING SEISMIC COEFFICIENTS FOR PERFORMANCE-BASED DESIGN OF EARTHDAMS AND TALL EMBANKMENTS (2014)
<p>Following an overview of pertinent literature, this paper presents a new methodology for estimating seismic coefficients for the performance-based design of earth dams and tall embankments. The methodology is based on statistical regression of (decoupled) ...
The aim of this paper is to introduce a robust methodology for the analytical calculation of strains in flexible buried pipelines due to surface point-source blasts.
Existing analytical methods for the stress analysis of buried steel pipelines at crossings with active strike-slip faults depend on a number of simplifications, which limit their applicability and may even lead to non-conservative results. The analytical methodology ...
In this paper a 3-D thin shell strain analysis has been presented, regarding long cylindrical underground structures (buried pipelines and tunnels) subjected to seismic shear (S) wave excitation.
GENERAL REPORT OF THE ATHENS ETC-12 WORKSHOP ON THE EVALUATION AND APPLICATION OF SEISMIC EUROCODE EC-8 (2006)
<p>The following General Report is based on the Summary Reports presented <br />during the second day of the Athens Workshop, and the discussion which <br />followed them.</p>
This paper presents results of numerical analyses for the seismic response of step-like ground slopes in uniform visco-elastic soil, under vertically propagating SV seismic waves.
Contrary to many laboratory investigations, common empirical correlations from in situ tests consider that the increase in the percentage of fines leads to an increase of the cyclic liquefaction resistance of sands. This paper draws upon the integrated Critical ...
A set of approximate, multivariable relations is established to evaluate soil effects on the peak horizontal acceleration, the peak horizontal velocity and the horizontal elastic response spectra (5% damping). The basic innovation of the approach is the use ...
This paper presents the multiaxial formulation of a plasticity model for sand under cyclic shearing.
SITE-SPECIFIC ANALYSIS OF STRONG MOTION DATA FROM THE SEPTEMBER 7, 1999 ATHENS, GREECE EARTHQUAKE (2002)
the following important issues, concerning the Athens, Greece earthquake of 07/09/1999, are addressed in this article: (a) the principal direction of ground shaking, (b) the accuracy of pure seismological methods for site characterization, (c) the effect of ...
