  • I knew that I would enjoy this book when I saw that Andrew Charleson had used one of my favorite buildings, the Villa Savoie in Paris, as a seismic design case study. The earthquake engineers ’ nightmare, with its pin-like pilotis, ramps and roof garden – the epitome of the free planned International Style dwelling – it floats above the field in Poissy, giving the illusion of being on the sea.

  • We propose a two-step inversion of three-component seismograms that ( 1) recovers the far-field source time function at each station and (2) estimates the distribution of co-seismic slip on the fault plane for small earthquakes (magnitude 3 to 4). The empirical Green’s function (EGF) method consists of finding a small earthquake located near the one we wish to study and then performing a deconvolution to remove the path, site, and instrumental effects from the main-event signal.

  • Although the vast majority of earthquakes that occur in the world each year have natural causes, some of these earthquakes and a number of lesser magnitude seismic events are related to human activities and are called “induced seismic events” or “induced earthquakes.” Induced seismic activity has been documented since at least the 1920s and has been attributed to a range of human activities including the impoundment of large reservoirs behind dams, controlled explosions related to mining or construction, and underground nuclear tests.

  • The NW of Vietnam is currently affected by a stress field characterizing by approximatc1y NS and EW sub-horizontal maximum and minimum principal stress axis respective1y. The results obtained from field investigations and numeric modelisation reveal that the present stress field varies not only in relative magnitude but also in orientation of principal stress axes from point to point and in depth. The tectonic stress variation strong1y depends on the geometry and active kinematics of faults as well as on their earthquake history. ...

  • By its geographical position, Mexico finds itself under a great variety of natural phenomena which can cause disasters, like earthquakes, eruptions, hurricanes, burning forest, floods and aridity (dryness). In case of disaster, the effects on financial and natural resources are huge and volatile. In Mexico the first risk to transfer is the seismic risk, because although it is the less recurrent, it has the biggest impact on the population and country. For example, an earthquake of magnitude 8.

  • Historically, the Cocos plate boundary produced the 1985 Michoacan earthquake of magnitude 8.1 Mw Richter scale. It destroyed hundreds of buildings and caused thousand of deaths in Mexico City and other parts of the country. It is considered the most damaging earthquake in the history of Mexico City. The Mexican insurance industry officials estimated payouts of four billion dollars. In the last decades, other earthquakes have reached the magnitude 7.8 Mw Richter scale.
