Sort By:   

  Experiment-1: Field Investigation of Topographic Effects using Mine Seismicity: Phase I
Dates: June 17, 2010 - June 25, 2010
Description: Topographic effects refer to the modification and amplification of seismic ground motion in the vicinity of topographic features such as hillsides, ridges, and canyons. This well-documented phenomenon has yet to be addressed in design codes. In this...

  Experiment-2: Surface wave testing during 2010 field work
Dates: June 21, 2010 - June 21, 2010
Description: In 2010, during the field topographic effects project (Experiment 1), surface wave testing was conducted approximately 400 meters south of the main topographic effects array. The testing was conducted to determine the near-surface shear wave velocity...

  Experiment-3: Experimental Investigation of Topographic Effects Using a Centrifuge Model: Test 1
Dates: July 25, 2011 - January 12, 2012
Description: A Nevada sand model with close to 100% relative density was tested in a number of different geometrical configurations to test the effects of changing topography on earthquake ground motion. The model was initially constructed in July/August of 2011...

  Experiment-4: Field Investigation of Topographic Effects using Mine Seismicity: Phase II
Dates: July 07, 2011 - July 22, 2011
Description: Topographic effects refer to the modification and amplification of seismic ground motion in the vicinity of topographic features such as hillsides, ridges, and canyons. This well-documented phenomenon has yet to be addressed in design codes. In this...

  Experiment-5: Experimental Investigation of Dynamic Rock Fracture
Dates: September 17, 2012 - September 19, 2012
Description: Testing of synthetic rock samples in the form of slopes and cantilever beams with pre-defined discontinuities.
The models were instrumented and brought to failure by strong ground motions.
