Development of Contribution Functions for Cladding
• Loss Optimization Seismic Design (LOSD) has been proposed for use in engineering practice to explicitly consider losses arising from repair, downtime, and injuries in the design phase. • Component-level contribution ...
Coupling Ground Motion Simulation with Regional Modelling for Repid Impact Assessment
Introduction QuakeCoRE undertakes ground motion simulations as part of its computational workflow. Impact assessment is one of the subsequent downstream outcomes, and allows QuakeCoRE to assess estimated impacts for ...
Experimental Evaluation of Alternative Low Damange Solutions for Reinforced Concrete Walls
Four half-scale concrete walls with different low damage solutions are currently being tested at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Low damage alternatives were selected based on literature review and discussion with ...
The Earthquake Impact on New Zealand's Geodetic, Boundary and Topographic Infrastructure - Know thy Boundary Impacts
Introduction: | Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is a central government agency responsible for the management of property rights such as the survey and title system as well as location-based information such as geodetic, ...
Liquefaction Resistance of Partially Saturated Christchurch Soils
Past field investigations on Christchurch soil deposits show that, in some locations, the top part of the deposit is partially saturated at 1.0 m, or larger depths below the ground water table. Also, simplified methods ...
Usability of Disaster Apps: Insight from the App Markets
Background The general public has access to a plethora of ‘disaster apps’ through App Markets like iTunes and Google Play. However, limited research has studied these ‘disaster apps’ and how the public perceives their ...
Liquefaction Performance & Characterisation of 55 Chrictchurch Sites
To identify key ground characteristics that led to different liquefaction manifestations during the Canterbury earthquakes
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 ...
Christchurch Earthquake Recovery - An Example of Resilience and Sustainability
The term resilience‘’is increasingly being used in a multitude of contexts. Seemingly the latest buzz‘’word, it can mean many things to many people, in many different situations. In a natural hazard context, the terms ...
Vulnerability Of National Interdependent Infrastructure Networks to Spatially Localised Hazards
Critical infrastructure networks are geographically distributed systems spanning multiple scales. These networks are increasingly interconnected and dependent on each other for normal operation. Localised asset failures ...
