Objectives from WTC2014

  • To incorporate key country members into the group, for knowledge and information sharing. Done.
  • Ömer Aydan: From JSCE, chairman of the Rock Dynamics Committee, more than 25 years of experience in seismic design and analysis.
  • Guido Andreotti: From EUCENTRE, one of the most important European research centers for seismic studies and risk analysis. Expert in seismic risk analysis and numerical analysis on ground-structure interaction.
  • Tai-Tien Wang: from National Taipei University of Technology, expert in seismic monitoring, instrumentation and numerical analysis.
  • To reactivate worldwide the interest for seismic analysis and design, for rock and soil tunnels: Done and still doing it.
    • Professionals from Japan, China, Norway, Chile, Italy and Turkey.
    • Specifically, 11 professionals attended, with the following distribution:
    • Chile: 1, Italy: 2, Japan: 3, China: 1, Taiwan: 2, Turkey: 1, Norway: 1.

 

  • To produce state of the art reports for the tunnelling community. Ongoing:
    • Scope of works ready, contents ready, now        working to publish in two years more.
    • Database of seismic damages in tunnels. Each participant is assigned to a world region to get data.
    • Guidelines for seismic damage classification and register (based on the Japanese standard).

Research

  • Strong focused on design and analysis methodologies that countries with seismic experience are currently using.
    • We had four presentations about the current work in Japan, Italy, Chile and Taiwan.
      • Integration of structural and geotechnical engineering in seismic analysis.
      • Root Cause Seismic Damage Analysis
      • Seismic instrumentation and monitoring.
      • Performance of the Metro Line in Chile after 27/F Earthquake
