Undergraduate Researcher Alex Quiachon Presents his work on Seismic Site Characterization
This summer our research group had the pleasure of hosting Alex Quiachon, an incoming civil engineering freshman student from the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Program hosted by USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Alex was tasked with performing field studies to determine the spatial distribution of site period at two earthquake strong motion recording stations (Tarzana … Read More
Deployments of Seismometer Arrays for HVSR and MAM Data Collection at Tarzana Clubhouse (CE 24103) and LA VAMC Brentwood (NP 638)
The Nweke Research Group conducted field testing to collect data for Horizontal to Vertical Spectral Ration (HVSR) and Microtremor Array Method (MAM). The field tests were conducted at two locations: (1) Nearby the Tarzana Clubhouse (Network/Station code = CE/24103) which recorded large amplifications in ground shaking during the 1994 Mw 6.7 Northridge Earthquake; and (2) … Read More
