About this book

This book provides a timely review and summary of the recent advances in state-of-the-art earthquake geotechnics. The earthquake disasters in Japan and New Zealand in 2011 prompted the urgent need for the state-of-the-art earthquake geotechnics to be put into practice for disaster mitigation. By reviewing the developments in earthquake geotechnics over more than half a century, this unique book enables readers to obtain solid grasp of this discipline.

It is based on contributions from 18 leading international experts, who met in Kyoto in June 2016 to discuss a range of issues related to the developments of earthquake geotechnics. It comprehensively discusses various areas of earthquake geotechnics, including performance-based seismic design; the evolution of geotechnical seismic response analysis from 1964-2015; countermeasures against liquefaction; solutions for nuclear power plant disasters; the tsunami-caused inundation of the Tokyo metropolitan area; and a series of state-of-the-art effective stress analyses of case histories from the 2011 East Japan Earthquake.

The book is of interest to advanced level researchers and practicing engineers in the field of earthquake geotechnics.

About the authors

Dr. Susumu Iai is a professor at the Geo-hazard division, Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University, Japan. He joined the Port and Harbour Research Institute in 1974, directly after graduating from the University of Tokyo. His main research interest is geotechnical earthquake engineering in waterfront areas.

From 2003 to 2005, he served as the convener of a working group ISO/TC98/SC3/WG10 drafting International Standard ISO23469: Seismic actions for designing geotechnical works. He has received a number of awards, including the 1994 Prakash Award, USA, two awards from the Japan Geotechnical Society, and two awards from the JSCE.
