Abstract

The design and location of civil engineering structures at a project site require, aside from investigation of the site geology and geotechnical field and laboratory tests, knowledge of the soil-column shear-wave velocities and the geometry of the layers within the soil column and that of the soil-bedrock interface. We shall present case studies for seismic, geotechnical, and earthquake engineering site characterization.
