Shear Wave Velocity Liquefaction Triggering Assessment

By Pavlo Chrysovergis, P.E. | Geo-Institute Chair

The Orange County and Los Angeles Geo-Institute Chapters co-hosted a dinner meeting featuring Professor Robert Kayen of UC Berkeley, UCLA, and USGS on May 28th. Dr. Kayen presented an 11-year project in which he collected new shear wave velocity data from 350 sites to develop and enhance seismic soil liquefaction correlations. The event was held at the Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa and was attended by over 90 local geo-professionals.
