In this paper, a simple numerical model is used to simulate the contents sliding behaviour. After a brief introduction of the methodologies and development of sliding model, the contents sliding behaviour during an earthquake shaking is investigated analytically, ...

Shortcomings of modern seismic design in reinforced concrete have necessitated the development of new systems capable of addressing these issues. Able to be constructed using existing industry techniques, the slotted beam is one such practicable, economic ...

The excess pore water pressure developed in the Upper San Fernando Dam during the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake has been evaluated in several studies. Almost all of these studies indicate large excess pore pressure ratios developed only in the upstream and ...

Radar interferometry from the ALOS satellite captured the coseismic ground deformation associated with the 2010 Mw 8.8 Maule, Chile earthquake. The ALOS interferograms reveal a sharp transition in fringe pattern at ∼150 km from the trench axis that is diagnostic ...

<p>Since Iran is one of the seismically active regions, and many lessons are embedded in the observations of surface ruptures of Iran earthquakes, the use of case histories as a basis for the development of both insights and engineering judgment is considered. ...

The 2002 M7.9 Denali fault earthquake resulted in 340 km of ruptures along three separate faults, causing widespread liquefaction in the fluvial deposits of the alpine valleys of the Alaska Range and eastern lowlands of the Tanana River. Areas affected by liquefaction ...
