Performance-Based Design for Soil Liquefaction

Presented by Steven L. Kramer University of Washington     Many advances have been made over the 50-some years in which geotechnical engineers have actively been involved in the practice of earthquake engineering. Most recently, advances have come through the development of performance-based earthquake engineering, which seeks to predict the seismic performance of structures and facilities in ways that are useful to a wide variety of stakeholders. This presentation reviews the evolution of performance-based earthquake engineering and its application to…

NZGS Geomechanics Lecture (Nelson)

March 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Presented by Dr Misko Cubrinovski The subject of this lecture are three important aspects in the engineering assessment of soil liquefaction, i.e. material characterization of liquefiable soils, in-situ state characterization of soils, and system response of liquefiable deposits. These aspects in the assessment are especially important in the evaluation of liquefiable soils other than uniform clean sands, such as silts, silty sands with non-plastic or low-plasticity fines, gravel-sand-silt mixtures, and interbedded deposits composed of liquefiable and non-liquefiable soils.

Uni Canterbury – ENGE 412 – Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering

13 July 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 days that begins at 9:00am, repeating until 29 June 2018

An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Wednesday and Friday, repeating until 6 July 2018

An event every month that begins at 9:00am on day 13 of the month, repeating until 13 July 2018

This course focuses on description and representation of a rock mass, stress and strain in a rock mass and deformation and failure of a rock mass. These are applied to rock slope stability analysis and design of underground excavations.

Learning Outcomes

A student completing this course will be able to:

1. Apply concepts of stress, strain, elasticity and plasticity to intact rock and rock masses
2. Collect rock mechanics data in the field, combine it with laboratory test data and assess the stability of excavations in rock
3. Determine likely rock mass behaviours under different excavation and loading conditions and propose mitigation solutions
