Course Objective

The objective of this course is to familiarize the students to the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering. Discussions will focus on describing seismic hazard and developing methods for seismic analysis and design. Available seismic design codes and fundamentals of dynamic soil response will be reviewed. In addition, methods for soil liquefaction initiation and liquefaction-induced ground deformation predictions will be discussed. Seismic performance of level sites as well as slopes will be investigated.
