Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering
by Maosong Huang, Xiong Yu, Yu Huang, American Society of Civil Engineers. Geo-Institute

Proceedings of sessions of GeoShanghai 2010, held in Shanghai, China, June 3-5, 2010. Hosted by Tongji University, China; Shanghai Society of Civil Engineering, China; Chinese Institution of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, China. In cooperation with Alaska University Transportation Center, USA; Geo-Institute of ASCE, USA; Deep Foundation Institute, USA; East China Architectural Design and Research Institute Company, China; Georgia Institute of Technology, USA; Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan; Transportation Research Board, USA; University of Newcastle, Australia; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA; University of Kansas, USA; University of Tennessee, USA; Vienna University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Austria.

This Geotechnical Special Publication (GSP 201) contains 43 papers that examine a variety of topics in soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. Topics include: dynamic soil-structural interactions under seismic loads; dynamic properties of soils and rocks; and seismic zoning and earthquake hazard assessment. Papers cover important issues such as the dynamic responses of earth dams, piles and pile groups, soil nailing, tunnels, landfills, and shallow foundations.

Spatial Analysis in Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering
by American Society of Civil Engineers. Geo-Institute

These proceedings present a comprehensive overview of spatial hazard analysis in soil dynamics, in addition to identifying issues related to the practical implementation of the technology. Spatial analysis within the context of specific earthquake hazards includes ground motion amplification, liquefaction, and earthquake induced landslides. Also covered are techniques for assessing the combined hazard from multiple threats and damage estimation and lifeline infrastructure evaluation within a Geographic Information System (GIS) framework. Topics include spatial geologic hazard analysis in practice, regional versus site specific spatial hazard analysis, spatial data quality evaluation in geotechnical earthquake engineering, deterministic zonation of seismic slope instability, integration of earthquake hazards in GIS, and GIS assessment of water supply damage from the Northridge earthquake.

Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering
by Boominathan Adimoolam, Subhadeep Banerjee

This book gathers selected proceedings of the annual conference of the Indian Geotechnical Society, and covers various aspects of soil dynamics and earthquake geotechnical engineering. The book includes a wide range of studies on seismic response of dams, foundation-soil systems, natural and man-made slopes, reinforced-earth walls, base isolation systems and so on, especially focusing on the soil dynamics and case studies from the Indian subcontinent. The book also includes chapters addressing related issues such as landslide risk assessments, liquefaction mitigation, dynamic analysis of mechanized tunneling, and advanced seismic soil-structure-interaction analysis. Given its breadth of coverage, the book offers a useful guide for researchers and practicing civil engineers alike.
