Northern California Regional Meeting

Nonlinear dynamic analyses of Austrian Dam in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake

Presented by Dr. Ross Boulanger, Professor & Director of the Center for Geotechnical Modeling, UC Davis

Summary of presentation:

In this presentation, Dr. Boulanger summarizes the non-linear dynamic analysis using the Austrian Dam/Loma Prieta case history. One of his goals in this talk is to make nonlinear analyses more accessible to practitioners, so the emphasis is on how to use the tools and not on the math/numerical methods.

About the Speaker:

Professor Ross W. Boulanger is the Director of the Center for Geotechnical Modeling in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Davis. He received his PhD and MS degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, and his BASc degree in Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia. His research and professional practice are primarily related to liquefaction and its remediation, seismic performance of dams and levees, and seismic soil-structure interaction. His honors include the TK Hsieh Award from the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Ralph B. Peck Award, Norman Medal, Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize, and Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers, and election to the US National Academy of Engineering.
