The structure and behavior of the soil can significantly affect the extent and location of the damage occurring an earthquake. Therefore, it is important to know the characteristics of the subsoil at the location in order to determine the seismic action accordingly.
The following services are offered in the geotechnical earthquake engineering division:
Obtaining records of ground motions
Generating artificial earthquake time histories with
Defining the seismic actions at the site using design response spectra according to codes or with ground motion records
Computation of local response spectra with
Assessment of soil liquefaction potential
