NZGS two-day short course on: “IN-SITU SEISMIC TESTING: METHODS QUALITY AND UNCERTAINTY”

Presented by:

Dr. Brady R. Cox of the University of Texas, and

Dr Liam Wotherspoon of the University of Auckland.

 

Course Content

Engineers frequently require parameters obtained from in-situ seismic testing for use in modelling and design of civil infrastructure.

While in-situ measurements of shear wave velocity (Vs) are most commonly required, measurements of compression wave velocity (Vp) and estimates of fundamental site period (T0) obtained from horizontal-to-vertical (H/V) spectral ratio measurements are increasingly in demand. This course will provide training and guidance to engineers and other end-users about how to judge the quality of results obtained from in-situ seismic tests.

It will also present information that will help engineers encourage realistic quantification of uncertainty.

 

Who should attend

This course has been developed for engineers and engineering geologists at any point in their career. Providers of in-situ seismic testing will also find this course useful, as it will look to set some of the expectations for best practice.
