About this book

This book bridges the gap between theory and practice, showing how a detailed definition of the shear-wave velocity (VS) profile can be efficiently obtained using limited field equipment and following simple acquisition procedures.

It demonstrates how surface waves (used to define the VS  profile) and vibration data (used to describe the dynamic behaviour of a building) can be recorded using the same equipment, and also highlights common problems, ambiguities and pitfalls that can occur when adopting popular methodologies, which are often based on a series of simplistic assumptions.

Today, most national and international building codes take into account a series of parameters aimed at defining the local seismic hazard. Sites are characterised based on the local VS profile, and the dynamic behaviour of existing buildings is defined through the analysis of their eigenmodes. The book includes a series of case studies to help readers gain a deeper understanding of seismic and vibration data and the meaning (pros and cons) of a series of techniques often referred to as MASW, ESAC, SPAC, ReMi, HVSR, MAAM and HS. It also provides access to some of the datasets so that readers can gain a deeper and more concrete understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects.

About the authors

Prof. Giancarlo Dal Moro graduated in Geological Sciences and holds a Ph.D. in Geophysics. He has worked as a researcher in Italy and abroad and published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to his academic activities, since 2006 he has also been involved in the data acquisition and analysis for a large number of projects and the design of innovative procedures for the acquisition and analysis of seismic data (patented methodology for surface-wave acquisition and analysis based on the exploitation of a single 3-component geophone). He currently works in Prague, at the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
