Two consecutive lectures will take place at this event. In the first lecture, Prof. Tiziana Rossetto (University College London) will present recent advances in the assessment of buildings subjected to earthquake and tsunami. In the second lecture, Prof. Gopal S. P. Madabhushi (University of Cambridge) will discuss the use of high gravity centrifuge tests as a means to investigate soil liquefaction phenomena.


29/01/2020 6:00 pm

In this presentation, Dr. Prodromos Psarropoulos will explore various topics concerning the geotechnical and structural design of onshore or offshore energy facilities with the help of case studies. The first part of the presentation focuses on the impact of local site conditions on the ground surface motion. In the second part emphasis is given on the quantitative assessment of the earthquake-related geohazards and the realistic estimation of the peak ground displacements that will actually determine the soil-structure interaction and the structural demand. Finally, the third part of the presentation is devoted to remote sensing and early-warning systems that are required for the safe operation of the energy projects.
