View Resource Earthquake Engineering

The main objective of this site is to illustrate to students of structural and architectural engineering the problems and solutions in attaining efficient earthquake-resistant structures and facilities. Discussed and illustrated on the site are the different sources of damage that can be triggered by an earthquake.

View Resource Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Portal

Site aiming to provide useful and educational information in geotechnical earthquake engineering. The site involves topics such as: liquefaction engineering, seismic slope analysis and soil structure interaction.

View Resource Seismic Shaking and Earthquake Engineering

In this exercise, students will investigate the effects of earthquakes on Earth materials and on buildings. Introductory materials discuss seismic shaking (ground motion), material amplification by loose or unconsolidated deposits, and the concept of fundamental period. Using the supplied data tables, they will determine peak ground acceleration, compare ground shaking on bay mud, alluvium, and...

View Resource Earthquake Science Explained-A Series of Ten Short Articles for Students, Teachers, and Families

That swirling bard of American letters and transcendentalism, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once opined "We learn geology the morning after the earthquake." This need never be the case for educators and members of the general public who give careful consideration to this excellent pamphlet created by the United States Geological Survey. Compiled by Matthew A. D'Alessio, this document contains ten short...

View Resource NISEE: National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering

The National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering (NISEE) has a huge collection of earthquake data and images for researchers or anyone with a passing interest in these destructive forces. Operated at the University of California, Berkeley, the site has ten "eBooks" that range in topic from introductory earthquake engineering to earthquake risk-reduction measures. A giant database is...
