Passive seismic site characterization Université Grenoble Alpes
In recent years, the number of scientific papers and engineering applications dealing with ambient vibration analysis methods has increased considerably. Clearly, the interest in these methods originates from both the economical attractive cost benefit ratio and the straightforward data acquisition. Being a non-destructive passive technique, these methods also complement geotechnical and/or active geophysical methods for characterizing ground structure at geotechnical and earthquake engineering scales. This course will achieve the necessary understanding of the problems related to the acquisition, processing and interpretation of these techniques for quantitative assessment of shear-wave velocity structure and derived engineering parameters (e.g. Vs30 required in building codes, site amplification). The course will alternate lectures, exercises and field experiment.
