<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>With the increasing population and the consequent needs for transport facilities, the construction of tunnels in urban environments is fast growing. Tunneling at each depth of the soil, causes changes in the earth&rsquo;s surface; this is more important ...

<p>Thin coastal dykes typically found in developing countries may suddenly collapse due to rapid land subsidence, material ageing, sea-level rise, high wave attack, earthquakes, landslides, or a collision with vessels. Such a failure could trigger dam-break ...

<p>One of the most devastating effects of earthquakes in the seismic regions is liquefaction. Many research works have been done in this field and at present different methods are available for the liquefaction potential assessment. The liquefaction is a very ...

<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) ...

<p>The previously unknown Greendale Fault ruptured in the September 2010 moment magnitude (Mw) 7.1 Darfield Earthquake. Surface rupture fracture patterns and displacements along the fault were measured with high precision using real time kinematic (RTK) GPS, ...

<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>Dynamic triggering of earthquakes by seismic waves is a robustly observed phenomenon with well-documented examples from over 30 major earthquakes. We are now in a position to use dynamic triggering as a natural experiment to probe the reaction of faults ...

<p>The geological structure of Greece (frequent occurrence of rock formations, existence of faults and fracturing of rocks), the steep topography and mountainous terrain as well as its high seismicity, creates a significant rockfall hazard. During the last ...
