NEEShub Project Warehouse: Data Updates - June


The Project Warehouse on the NEEShub is the centralized data repository for sharing and publishing earthquake engineering research data from experimental and numerical studies. The data in the Project Warehouse are associated with research projects funded by a variety of agencies and include experiments performed at NEES and non-NEES equipment sites.


New data are constantly becoming publically available within the Project Warehouse. To keep the community aware of new datasets, NEEScomm will be highlighting projects and experiments that have been recently completed and curated. Three highlighted projects, each of which take advantage of data viewing within the NEEShub using the tool inDEED, are summarized below.



Pile Pinning Effects on a Bridge Abutment


NEEShub Project: Pile Pinning Effects on a Bridge Abutment in Laterally Spreading Ground
PI: Ross Boulanger (UC Davis)

Three centrifuge tests were conducted at the University of California at Davis to study pile pinning effects on bridge abutments over liquefied and laterally spreading ground. The tests focused on the comparison of two identical embankments with and without pile restraining forces during liquefaction and lateral spreading. Each test considered a suite of input motions and different pile geometries. Pore pressure, acceleration, and deformation data are available along with bending moment and shear force data for the piles.



Performance Based Design of New Masonry


NEEShub Project: Performance Based Design of New Masonry
PI(s): Richard Klingner (University of Texas at Austin), W. Mark McGinley (University of Louisville), David McLean (Washington State University), Benson Shing (UC San Diego)

A full-scale reinforced concrete masonry structure with clay masonry veneer was tested at the University of California at San Diego shaking table. A similar wood-frame structure with clay masonry veneer was also tested. Acceleration and displacement data are available for these tests, as well as for a series of component specimens tested on the shaking table. Data from quasi-static testing of similar component specimens at the University of Texas and North Carolina A&T University are also available.



SASW Measurements at Stanford University


NEEShub Project: SASW Measurements at Stanford University
PI(s): Ivan Wong (URS Corporation), Kenneth H. Stokoe (University of Texas).

Spectral-analysis-of-surface-waves (SASW) surveys were performed to generate shear wave velocity profiles at 15 locations on the Stanford campus using the University of Texas NEES shakers. The unprocessed data, processed dispersion curves, and derived shear wave velocities are available for each test location. Shear wave velocity information for these sites, as well as other sites, is viewable through inDEED within the Shear Wave Velocity Profiles Database.
