Name of Notes : – Introduction to Earthquake Engineering Lecture Note
Our objective in earthquake engineering research is to improve the state of knowledge, through fundamental and applied research, to help decision-makers reduce seismic hazards.
Decision-makers are defined as all the individuals and agencies affecting the planning and design/construct process, such as planning or regulatory agencies, owners, investors and insurers and the engineers who protect against seismic hazards through earthquake-resistant design.
Earthquake engineering is a multi-phased process that ranges from the description of earthquake sources, to characterization of site effects and structural response, and to description of measures of seismic protection. Our current research includes occurrence modeling, geophysical modeling, ground-motion modeling, stochastic and nonlinear dynamic analysis, and design and experimentation. Components of these studies pertain to the individual phases but also, and perhaps more importantly, to aspects that incorporate some or all of the phases of earthquake engineering.
