Application of Lateral Spread Hazard Definition Using Liquefaction Susceptibility Index to the Design of Buried Pipelines
Recent liquefaction hazard studies have made use of relationships developed to provide direct estimates of liquefaction displacements interms of liquefaction susceptibility index (LSI)....

Liquefaction Hazard Evaluation: Methodology and Application
Deterministic liquefaction potential evaluations are commonly done in engineering practice and several probabilistic models exist. In this paper an extended method is described that combines...

Seismic Ground Motion and Attenuation Relationships
A key element in the assessment of seismic hazard is the estimation of how energy from a given earthquake is affected by crustal structure along the propagation path. There are recognized...

Development of Seismic Hazards Data Base
A seismic hazards data base has been developed as a research tool for the engineering and seismology communities. The data base, which is still growing, currently contains information...

Earthquake Clustering in the Kanto District
Earthquakes in the Kanto district (Japan) between January 1983 and March 1987 are analysed for the identification of independent main shocks and for the hierarchical clustering of secondary...

Estimating Earthquake Hazard of Municipal Water Systems
This paper uses the City of Memphis as a case study to present the seismic hazard evaluation of a municipal water delivery system. The horizontal peak bedrock accelerations resulting from...

Oil Spill Impacts on Aquifers
This study attempts to evaluate the seismic hazards along a forty inch pipeline and the impact of a pipeline rupture in the recharge area of the aquifer serving most of West Tennessee....

Land Use Change and Soil Erosion Hazard in the Zambezi Basin
An experimental model for estimating soil erosion hazard in southern Africa (SLEMSA) was linked to a raster based Geographical Information System. Soil erosion hazard maps were constructed...

Incorporating Seismotectonic Data into Seismic Hazard Analyses
A wide range of seismotectonic data are now being incorporated into probabilistic seismic hazard analyses, supplementing the inadequately short historical seismicity record. This paper...

Earthquake Ground Motions Consistent with Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis
The present study deals with the new methodology for simulation of earthquake ground motion for the probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) of structures. Peak ground acceleration, acceleration...

A Seismic PRA Procedure in Japan and its Application to a Building Perforance Safety Estimation: Part 1. Seismic Hazard Analysis
A method for seismic hazard evaluation which deals with response spectrum information is presented. A local city near Tokyo facing the Pacific Ocean is selected for the case study. It...

Reliability of Electric Power Transmission Systems in Seismically Active Metropolitan Tokyo: Part 2. Seismic Hazard Analysis
For studying the seismic reliability of a power transmission system of Metropolitan Tokyo, the seismic hazard analysis of Kanto district was performed based on a three dimensionally distributed...

A Stochastic Clustering Model for the Occurrence of Large Earthquakes Along the Central Peruvian Margin
A stochastic model of a process of cluster centers and subsidiary cluster member processes is presented for the occurrence of large earthquakes along the Central Peruvian Margin. In the...

A Geophysical Model for Earthquake Hazard Estimation
A method for site hazard estimation from subduction earthquake is developed by combining a time-dependent earthquake occurrence model and a ground motion model into a unified hazard model....

Seismic Hazard Estimation in the Eastern U.S.
Probable seismic hazard is generally estimated considering five elements: 1) seismicity; 2) source radiation; 3) wave propagation (attenuation); 4) site response; and 5) ground failure....

Graphic Demonstration of Seismic Hazards Data Base
A seismic hazards data base has been developed as a research tool for the engineering and seismology communities. The data base presently holds five categories of data, the largest of...

Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards
A Rapid Screening Procedure (RSP) developed for use nation-wide is based on a 'sidewalk survey' of a building, in which a Data Collection Form is completed by...

Reliability in Foundation Engineering Practice
The value and use of reliability concepts in foundation engineering practice are explored, with a focus on two complementary approaches. In the first, macroscopic and action-oriented,...
