Abstract

Some unusual patterns of earthquake damages due to ground waving have been described in order to draw attention to further research towards these problems. A brief introduction of relevant theoretical approach to torsional components of ground motion and amplification of seismic surface waves due to local topographic irregularities have been given in this paper to provide a contrast between theoretical approach and practical cases in order to reflect the gap to be filled.

Ground Waving and Its Damaging Effect

St. Louis, Missouri

Some unusual patterns of earthquake damages due to ground waving have been described in order to draw attention to further research towards these problems. A brief introduction of relevant theoretical approach to torsional components of ground motion and amplification of seismic surface waves due to local topographic irregularities have been given in this paper to provide a contrast between theoretical approach and practical cases in order to reflect the gap to be filled.
