CEN 5024G - Seismological and Geotechnical Aspects of Earthquakes

Credits: 4
Study of the characterization of earthquake hazards, incorporating principles from engineering seismology, soil dynamics, and geotechnical earthquake engineering. Earthquake fundamentals, including plate tectonics, fault rupture mechanisms, and characterization of seismic sources. Theory of wave propagation and vibratory motion. Ground-motion models and probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. Dynamic soil behavior and influence of geologic materials on ground motions. Assessment of geotechnical effects of earthquakes, including site response, liquefaction, and seismic slope stability.
