Current Practice and Future Directions in Ground Motion Selection for Structural Analysis
Speaker: Jack W. Baker, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Stanford University
Date:Thursday, December 1, 2011
Time: 2:00 p.m. Eastern time
Location: 140 Ketter Hall, University at Buffalo North Campus
Jack W. Baker, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Stanford University, will deliver a seminar on “Current Practice and Future Directions in Ground Motion Selection for Structural Analysis." In his presentation, Dr. Baker will illustrate challenges and opportunities for engineering use of ground motions. Typical selection procedures and uses of ground motions for analysis will be described. Two tools used in analysis—the Uniform Hazard Spectrum and the newer Conditional Mean Spectrum—will be described.
