Modeling nonlinear site effects in physics-based ground motion simulation
This study examines the performance of nonlinear total-stress wave-propagation site response analysis for modelling site effects in physics-based ground motion simulations of the 2010-2011 Canterbury, New Zealand ...
Monotonic and cyclic undrained behavior of Kumamoto-Aso pumice soil by triaxial and torsional shear tests
The Kyushu Island of Japan was hit by a series of moment magnitude, Mw= 6-7 earthquakes during April 14th-16th 2016, followed by hundreds of aftershocks. The earthquakes caused a significant damage to the build and natural ...
Identification, prioritization and mitigation - A three step process for stormwater quality management
In this paper, we present the application of the system on Addington Brook catchment in Christchurch. Addington Brook is a stormwater-influenced brook that headwaters near Blenheim Road, west of Matipo Street, in western ...
Preliminary examination of kinematic rupture parameter variability in simulated ground motions
This paper investigates the effects of variability in source rupture parameters on site-specific physics-based simulated ground motions, ascertained through the systematic analysis of ground motion intensity measures. ...
Investigating the role of clay layers in containing liquefied soils
During the 2010 - 2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence, extensive liquefaction was observed in many areas of Christchurch city and its surroundings, causing widespread damage to buildings and infrastructure. While existing ...
