May Dinner Meeting – Seismic Stability of Slopes: New Developments and Incorporation of Uncertainty – Ellen Rathje

May 26, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Best Western Plus Executive Inn, Seattle, 200 Taylor Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109 United States

Prof. Ellen M. Rathje, Ph.D., P.E. University of Texas at Austin Permanent sliding displacement represents a common damage parameter for evaluating the seismic stability and performance of slopes.  Recently developed empirical models for the sliding displacement of shallow (rigid) sliding masses have demonstrated that including multiple ground motion parameters in the predictive model (e.g., peak ground acceleration and peak ground velocity) improves the displacement prediction and reduces its uncertainty.  A unified framework is developed that extends these empirical displacement models…
