Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

The dynamic response of the subsoil has a strong influence on seismic risk. Indeed it affects the seismic hazard and the soil-foundation-structure interaction. The course, after the introduction of the basics of seismology and soil dynamics, deals with geotechnical issues of engineering structures under seismic loads.

Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

Understanding of the seismic response of soil deposits and its influence on the seismic hazard for the construction site. Ability to build simplified models for the prediction of the seismic response of site, the analysis of seismic hazards and the analysis of soil-structure interaction.

Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato scritto individuale;

Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

The exam is composed by an homework in 3 parts and an oral exam. The homework is intended to provide the practical skills necessary for the quantitative assessment of seismic hazard at a site, including the evaluation of the stability of a retaining structure, which will consider also the evaluation of its performances. The oral exam is intended to evaluate the comprehension of the background theory and to assess the full understanding of the topics covered by the homework. Grading is dependent in equal parts on these assessments.
