<p>This paper discusses some aspects of the seismic behaviour of large homogeneous earth dams. Numerical analyses were carried out using a plane-strain finite difference model of an existing dam that has been calibrated using the monitoring data taken during ...

<p>The Northeast India region is one of the most active zones in the world; the region is jawed between the two arcs, the Himalayan arc to the north and the Indo-Burmese arc to the east. The region bounded by latitude 22-290N and longitude 90-980 E, produced ...

<p>Bounded by the western and eastern syntaxes, the Himalayan region has experienced at least five M~8 earthquakes during a seismically very active phase from 1897 through 1952. However, there has been a paucity of M~8 earthquakes since 1952. Examining of ...

<p>The study of liquefaction potential of a place is of utmost importance regarding the safety of both life andproperty. Liquefaction of soil followed by earthquakes has always been a source of danger for the people living in the highly vulnerable seismic ...

<p>One of the most challenging safety problems in room and pillar coal mines is roof fall phenomena during retreat mining. Roof fall not only causes fatal and non-fatal injuries on miners, stoppages in mining operations and equipment breakdowns, but ...

<p>The Narmada South Fault in the Indian peninsular shield region is associated with moderate-to-strong earthquakes. The prevailing hazard evidenced by the earthquake-related fatalities in the region imparts significance to the investigations of the seismogenic ...

<p>Slope movements (e.g. landslides) are dynamic systems that are complex in time and space and closely linked to both inherited and current preparatory and triggering controls. It is not yet possible to assess in all cases conditions for failure, reactivation ...
