Fragility functions for buried pipelines in liquefaction-prone areas based on Canterbury earthquake sequence data
Motivation This poster aims to present fragility functions for pipelines buried in liquefaction-prone soils. Existing fragility models used to quantify losses can be based on old data or use complex metrics. Addressing ...
Generalised Parametic Function and Spatial Correlations for Seismic Velocities in the Canterbury Region based on Dynamic Site Characterisation
Background and objectives This poster presents the development of generalised parametric functions to compute seismic velocities within the sedimentary deposits of the Canterbury region, with spatial correlations to ...
QuakeCoRE and OpenSees (Year 2) : Initiatives and Activities to Reduce Barriers to Entry and Reduce Time to Solutions
The OpenSees finite element platform (Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation) developed through the University of California Berkeley is the principal collaborative software identified by QuakeCoRE Technology ...
A Vs30 Map for New Zealand based on Geology, Topographic Slope and Direct Measurements
Motivation Vs30 (the time-averaged shear wave velocity in the uppermost 30 metres of a given location) is an important engineering parameter used in research and practice. Vs30 is not straightforward or inexpensive to ...
