Software and data produced by Baker Research Group
This page provides data and code to document the referenced paper, which examines four methods by which ground motions can be selected for dynamic seismic response analyses of engineered systems when the underlying seismic hazard is quantified via ground motion simulation rather than empirical ground motion prediction equations. Even with simulation-based seismic hazard, a ground motion selection process is still required in order to extract a small number of time series from the much larger set developed as part of the hazard calculation. Four specific methods are presented for ground motion selection from simulation-based seismic hazard analyses. One of the four methods provides a ‘benchmark’ result (i.e. using all simulated ground motions), enabling the consistency of the other three more efficient selection methods to be addressed.

During 2012, the Idaho National Laboratory Seismic Monitoring Program evaluated 17,329 independent triggers that included earthquakes from around the world, the western United States, and local region of the Snake River Plain. Seismologists located 1,460 earthquakes and man-made blasts within and near the 161-km (or 100-mile) radius of the Idaho National Laboratory. Of these earthquakes, 16 had small-to-moderate size magnitudes (M) from 3.0 to 3.6. Within the 161-km radius, the majority of 695 earthquakes (M < 3.6) occurred in the active regions of the Basin and Range Provinces adjacent to the eastern Snake River Plain. Only 11 microearthquakes occurred within the Snake River Plain, four of which occurred in Craters of the Moon National Monument. The earthquakes had magnitudes from 1.0 to 1.7 and occurred at deep depths (11-24 km). Two events with magnitudes less than 1.0 occurred within the Idaho National Laboratory boundaries and had depths less than 10 km.

Seismic isolation (SI) has the potential to drastically reduce seismic response of structures, systems, or components (SSCs) and therefore the risk associated with large seismic events (large seismic event could be defined as the design basis earthquake (DBE) and/or the beyond design basis earthquake (BDBE) depending on the site location). This would correspond to a potential increase in nuclear safety by minimizing the structural response and thus minimizing the risk of material release during large seismic events that have uncertainty associated with their magnitude and frequency. The national consensus standard America Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard 4, Seismic Analysis of Safety Related Nuclear Structures recently incorporated language and commentary for seismically isolating a large light water reactor or similar large nuclear structure. Some potential benefits of SI are: 1) substantially decoupling the SSC from the earthquake hazard thus decreasing risk of material release during large earthquakes, 2) cost savings for the facility and/or equipment, and 3) applicability to both nuclear (current and next generation) and high hazard non-nuclear facilities. Issue: To date no one has evaluated how the benefit of seismic risk reduction reduces cost to construct a nuclear facility. Objective: Use seismic probabilistic risk assessment (SPRA) to evaluate the reduction in seismic risk and estimate potential cost savings of seismic isolation of a generic nuclear facility. This project would leverage ongoing Idaho National Laboratory (INL) activities that are developing advanced (SPRA) methods using Nonlinear Soil-Structure Interaction (NLSSI) analysis. Technical Approach: The proposed study is intended to obtain an estimate on the reduction in seismic risk and construction cost that might be achieved by seismically isolating a nuclear facility. The nuclear facility is a representative pressurized water reactor building nuclear power plant (NPP) structure. Figure 1: Project activities The study will consider a representative NPP reinforced concrete reactor building and representative plant safety system. This study will leverage existing research and development (R&D) activities at INL. Figure 1 shows the proposed study steps with the steps in blue representing activities already funded at INL and the steps in purple the activities that would be funded under this proposal. The following results will be documented: 1) Comparison of seismic risk for the non-seismically isolated (non-SI) and seismically isolated (SI) NPP, and 2) an estimate of construction cost savings when implementing SI at the site of the generic NPP.

John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center Technical Report Series
Deterioration of built infrastructure is growing into a major cause of concern for countries with a large population of aging structures. Although seismic design standards continue to advance as lessons learned from past events get incorporated, structures designed to older standards are likely to be more vulnerable to damage during earthquakes. The poor seismic performance of older structures is likely to be further exacerbated by advanced levels of structural deterioration, which may be caused due to a variety of processes such as chloride-induced corrosion, alkali-silica reaction, sulfate attack, freeze-thaw cycles, carbonation, and fatigue. However, the effects of long-term structural deterioration have been traditionally neglected in seismic risk assessment. This report focuses on the development of a comprehensive methodology for the time-dependent seismic risk assessment of structures located in a multi-hazard environment, that can explicitly account for the effects of (1) the time-varying nature of the different hazards, (2) long-term structural deterioration, and (3) cost escalation and the time-value of economic resources on seismic loss and impact estimates. The methodology for time-dependent seismic risk analysis proposed in this report begins with the PEER framework as a starting point and extends it through the addition of a separate module for time-dependent probabilistic deterioration analysis. Explicitly accounting for deterioration within the proposed framework requires probabilistic models for predicting the time-dependent level of deterioration of struc-tural elements. The steps involved in estimation of the time-dependent degree of deterioration for the case of deterioration in reinforced concrete bridge columns due to chloride-induced corrosion are illustrated in this dissertation, using available empirical models to describe the multi-stage corrosion process.

Develop a Greater Understanding of How and Why Surface Wave Testing Works Using examples and case studies directly drawn from the authors' experience, Surface Wave Methods for Near-Surface Site Characterization addresses both the experimental and theoretical aspects of surface wave propagation in both forward and inverse modeling. This book accents the key facets associated with surface wave testing for near-surface site characterization. It clearly outlines the basic principles, the theoretical framework and the practical implementation of surface wave analysis. In addition, it also describes in detail the equipment and measuring devices, acquisition techniques, signal processing, forward and inverse modeling theories, and testing protocols that form the basis of modern surface wave techniques. Review Examples of Typical Applications for This Geophysical Technique Divided into eight chapters, the book explains surface wave testing principles from data measurement to interpretation. It effectively integrates several examples and case studies illustrating how different ground conditions and geological settings may influence the interpretation of data measurements. The authors accurately describe each phase of testing in addition to the guidelines for correctly performing and interpreting results. They present variants of the test within a consistent framework to facilitate comparisons, and include an in-depth discussion of the uncertainties arising at each stage of surface wave testing. * Provides a comprehensive and in-depth treatment of all the steps involved in surface wave testing * Discusses surface wave methods and their applications in various geotechnical conditions and geological settings * Explains how surface wave measurements can be used to estimate both stiffness and dissipative properties of the ground * Addresses the issue of uncertainty, which is often an overlooked problem in surface wave testing * Includes examples with comparative analysis using different processing techniques and inversion algorithms * Outlines advanced applications of surface wave testing such as joint inversion, underwater investigation, and Love wave analysis Written for geotechnical engineers, engineering seismologists, geophysicists, and researchers, Surface Wave Methods for Near-Surface Site Characterization offers practical guidance, and presents a thorough understanding of the basic concepts.

Combining a theoretical background with engineering practice, Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges to Eurocodes covers the conceptual and detailed design of composite bridges in accordance with the Eurocodes. Bridge design is strongly based on prescriptive normative rules regarding loads and their combinations, safety factors, material properties, analysis methods, required verifications, and other issues that are included in the codes. Composite bridges may be designed in accordance with the Eurocodes, which have recently been adopted across the European Union. This book centers on the new design rules incorporated in the EN-versions of the Eurocodes. The book addresses the design for a majority of composite bridge superstructures and guides readers through the selection of appropriate structural bridge systems. It introduces the loads on bridges and their combinations, proposes software supported analysis models, and outlines the required verifications for sections and members at ultimate and serviceability limit states, including fatigue and plate buckling, as well as seismic design of the deck and the bearings. It presents the main types of common composite bridges, discusses structural forms and systems, and describes preliminary design aids and erection methods. It provides information on railway bridges, but through the design examples makes road bridges the focal point. This text includes several design examples within the chapters, explores the structural details, summarizes the relevant design codes, discusses durability issues, presents the properties for structural materials, concentrates on modeling for global analysis, and lays down the rules for the shear connection. It presents fatigue analysis and design, fatigue load models, detail categories, and fatigue verifications for structural steel, reinforcement, concrete, and shear connectors. It also covers structural bearings and dampers, with an emphasis on reinforced elastomeric bearings. The book is appropriate for structural engineering students, bridge designers or practicing engineers converting from other codes to Eurocodes.

This book is the first comprehensive and methodologically rigorous analysis of earthquake occurrence. Models based on the theory of the stochastic multidimensional point processes are employed to approximate the earthquake occurrence pattern and evaluate its parameters. The Author shows that most of these parameters have universal values. These results help explain the classical earthquake distributions: Omori's law and the Gutenberg-Richter relation. The Author derives a new negative-binomial distribution for earthquake numbers, instead of the Poisson distribution, and then determines a fractal correlation dimension for spatial distributions of earthquake hypocenters. The book also investigates the disorientation of earthquake focal mechanisms and shows that it follows the rotational Cauchy distribution. These statistical and mathematical advances make it possible to produce quantitative forecasts of earthquake occurrence. In these forecasts earthquake rate in time, space, and focal mechanism orientation is evaluated.

Engineers use earthquake ground motions for a variety of reasons, including seismic hazard assessment, calibration of ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs), and input to nonlinear response history analysis. These analyses require a significant number of ground motions and for some scenarios, such as earthquakes with large magnitudes and short distances, it may be difficult to obtain a sufficient number of ground motion recordings. When sufficient recordings do not exist, engineers modify available recordings using scaling or spectrum matching, or they use ground motion simulations. Ground motion simulations have existed for decades, but recent advances in simulation methods due to improved source characterization and wave propagation, coupled with increased computing power, have increased potential benefits for engineers. But before simulations can be used in engineering applications, simulations must be accessible and consistent with natural observations. This dissertation contributes to the latter issue, and it investigates the application of simulations to specific engineering problems. The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) Broadband Platform (BBP) is an open-source software distribution that enables third-party users to simulate ground motions using research code contributed by model developers. Because the BBP allows users to compute their own simulations with little knowledge of the underlying implementation and it ensures that all calculations are reproducible, it is extremely valuable for simulation validation and engineering applications. In this dissertation, the BBP is evaluated as a simulation generation tool from an engineering perspective. Ground motions are simulated to study parameters of engineering interest, such as high-frequency variability, near-fault ground motions, and local site response. Though some parameters need further development, such as site response (which is currently implemented using simple empirical amplification), the BBP proves to be an effective tool for facilitating these types of engineering studies. This dissertation proposes a simulation validation framework based on simple and robust proxies for the response of more complicated structures. We compile a list of proxies with robust empirical models that are insensitive to changes in earthquake scenario and do not rely on extrapolation for rarely observed events. Because predictions of these proxies are reliable under a variety of earthquake events, we can confidently compare them with simulations. The proposed proxies include correlation of epsilon across periods, ratio of maximum to median response across horizontal orientations, and ratio of inelastic to elastic displacement. The validation framework is applied to example simulations and successfully exposes some parameters that need work, such as variability and correlation of spectral acceleration. Finally, this dissertation investigates the application of simulations to response history analysis and fling-step characterization. A 3D nonlinear structural model is analyzed using recordings and simulations with similar elastic response spectra. The structural performance and resulting design decisions are similar, indicating that simulations are effective for response history analysis subject to certain conditions. To investigate fling-step, we extract fling pulses from a large set of simulations. Extracted fling properties such as amplitude and period are then compared to specially-processed recordings and relevant empirical models for surface displacement and pulse period. Reasonably good agreement is found between simulations, recordings, and empirical models. In general, ground motion simulations are found to be an effective alternative or supplement to recordings in several engineering applications. Because simulation methods are still developing, this work is not intended as an evaluation of existing methods, but rather as a development of procedures that can be used in ongoing work.

Developing sufficient energy resources to replace coal, oil and gas is a globally critical necessity. Alternatives to fossil fuels such as wind, solar, or geothermal energies are desirable, but the usable quantities are limited and each has inherent deterrents. The only virtually unlimited energy source is nuclear energy, where safety of infrastructure systems is the paramount concern. Infrastructure Systems for Nuclear Energy addresses the analysis and design of infrastructures associated with nuclear energy. It provides an overview of the current and future nuclear power industry and the infrastructure systems from the perspectives of regulators, operators, practicing engineers and research academics.

Developing sufficient energy resources to replace coal, oil and gas is a globally critical necessity. Alternatives to fossil fuels such as wind, solar, or geothermal energies are desirable, but the usable quantities are limited and each has inherent deterrents. The only virtually unlimited energy source is nuclear energy, where safety of infrastructure systems is the paramount concern. Infrastructure Systems for Nuclear Energy addresses the analysis and design of infrastructures associated with nuclear energy. It provides an overview of the current and future nuclear power industry and the infrastructure systems from the perspectives of regulators, operators, practicing engineers and research academics. This book also provides details on investigations of containment structures, nuclear waste storage facilities and the applications of commercial/academic computer software. Specific environments that challenge the behavior of nuclear power plants infrastructure systems such as earthquake, blast, high temperature, irradiation effects, soil-structure interaction effect, etc., are also discussed.

This thesis integrates geomechanics, microseismic, and laboratory studies to investigate the role of preexisting fractures and faults in development of unconventional reservoirs. This study provides a new method for delineation of reservoir structure using microseismic data with support from geomechanics and laboratory measurement. The interpretation from this study can be applied to address some of the practical questions in highly fractured reservoirs, including, but not limited to, well design and hydraulic fracture design. The implication provides insights for future strategic development of fractured and faulted unconventional reservoirs. The first part of this thesis focuses on the production of shale oil from the Bakken Formation and consists of three approaches (Chapters 2-5). A geomechanical model shows the current stress state to be characterized by a NF/SS regime, with SHmax orientation ~N45°E. The microseismic events were recorded in six vertical observation wells during hydraulic fracturing of parallel wells X and Z, and are independently processed by two contractors. Both sets of event locations show three characteristics: First, rather than occurring in proximity to the stages being pressurized, many of the events occur along the length of well Y, a parallel well located between X and Z that had been in production for ~2.5 years at the time X and Z were stimulated. Second, relatively few fracturing stages are associated with an elongated cloud of events trending in the direction of SHmax as is commonly observed during hydraulic fracturing. Instead, the microseismic events in a number of stages appear to trend ~N75°E, about 30° from the direction of SHmax. Earthquake focal plane mechanisms confirm slip on faults with this orientation. Finally, the microseismic events are clustered at two distinct depths, one near the depth of the well being pressurized in the Middle Bakken Formation and the other ~800 ft above in the Mission Canyon Formation. Approximately 60% of the microseismic events from stage 2 exhibit similar waveforms that are occurring in adjacent multiplet clusters. Two multiplet clusters are relocated using the double-difference technique, and the relocated hypocenters are more clustered, delineating reservoir structures that are consistent with the focal plane mechanisms. We argue that all three of these patterns result from the hydraulic stimulation being dominated by flow channeling along preexisting faults. Combined analysis of hypocenter locations, focal plane mechanisms, fault slip, and 3D seismic data indicate that steeply-dipping N75°E striking faults with a combination of normal and strike-slip movement were being stimulated during hydraulic fracturing. A simple geomechanical analysis was carried out to illustrate how this occurred in the context of the current stress field, pore pressure and depletion in the vicinity of well Y during the 2.5 years of production prior to stimulation of wells X and Z. Laboratory measurements of 6 pairs of core samples from the reservoir suggest that the time dependent deformation of these rocks can be characterized by a power-law constitutive law. The constitutive parameters determined from 3-hour creep measurements follow a range and trend similar to those of samples from other shale gas reservoirs. By applying the viscous relaxation model, the differential horizontal stresses are estimated from geophysical logs. With the NF/SS faulting regime in the Bakken and an assumption of a constant faulting regime in sedimentary lithology, a continuous principal stress profile is estimated. The least horizontal stress magnitude suggests that the Lodgepole and Three Forks Formations adjacent to the Bakken Formation are not acting as frac barriers during hydraulic fracture. Thus, the asymmetric distribution of the microseismicity suggests the out-of-zone microseismic events are associated with preexisting fractures and faults rather than purely hydraulic fracturing growth. Moreover, the pore pressure perturbation required for slip is consistent with the occurrence of microseismicity, where events occur at depths that require less elevated pore pressure. Brittleness determined from elastic properties is considered, but it cannot explain the microseismicity. This is because brittleness is not an intrinsic rock property and cannot be characterized in a consistent way. Therefore, applying brittleness for locating the hydraulic fracturing sweet spot needs to be done cautiously. The second part of this thesis focuses on the feasibility of injecting CO2 to enhance coalbed methane production, as well as the capacity for long term CO2 storage in coalbeds of the Power River Basin, Wyoming. Laboratory measurements are performed to study the adsorption/desorption, mechanical, and transport properties of coal with gas saturation of He, N2, CH4 and CO2, at either increasing pore pressure or increasing effective stress. Results suggest that coal from the PRB has strong adsorption capacity for CO2, and this strong adsorption is stable unless the pore pressure drops below 2 MPa. Also, CO2-induced swelling will cause permeability loss, but the loss is less than one order of magnitude. Laboratory results indicate that the coal seam in the study area might be a good candidate for an ECBM and CO2 sequestration project. However, its feasibility still depends on future numerical modeling predictions, and the results reported in this study can be applied for further modeling work.

John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center Technical Report Series
As part of an investigation to enhance the seismic performance of light-frame residential structures by reducing damage to partition walls and other deformation-sensitive components, this report describes the testing and experimental results of twenty full-scale gypsum-sheathed walls. The experiments investigated the effects of enhanced, inexpensive construction procedures with the objective to increase the racking strength and stiffness of partition-type shear walls, lessening seismic deformations. A majority of the specimens utilized wood framing members, while four specimens featured cold-formed steel framing. The specimens were subjected to cyclic earthquake-type loading through established loading histories for light-frame components. The stiffness, strength, and damage progression of specimens with varying wall length, openings, orthogonal wall returns, tie-down and anchoring configurations, and interior and exterior sheathings are discussed. Iterative tests of specific interior wall geometries determined the optimal construction techniques required to reduce deformations and improve life-cycle performance. The main improvement to these specimens over typical construction was the use of construction adhesive and mechanical fasteners to attach the sheathing to the framing. Additional enhancements included mid-height blocking, improved corner stud assemblies, properly sized tie downs at the ends of wall segments, exterior stucco engagement, and bent straps on the exterior of planar wood-framed walls. The stiffness, strength, and residual capacity of specimens with orthogonal walls increased as compared to specimens with in-plane-only shear walls.

This new edition of the handbook of Quay Walls provides the reader with essential knowledge for the planning, design, execution and maintenance of quay walls, as well as general information about historical developments and lessons learned from the observation of ports in various countries. Technical chapters are followed by a detailed calculation of a quay wall based on a semi-probabilistic design procedure, which applies the theory presented earlier. Since the publication of the Dutch edition in 2003 and the English version in 2005, considerable new experience has been obtained by the many practitioners using the book, prompting the update of this handbook. Moreover, the introduction of the Eurocodes in 2012 has prompted a complete revision of the Design chapter, which is now compliant with the Eurocodes. Furthermore, additional recommendations for using FEM-analysis in quay wall design have been included. In response to ongoing discussions within the industry about buckling criteria for steel pipe piles, a thorough research project was carried out on steel pipe piles fi lled with sand and on piles without sand. The results of this research programme have also been incorporated in this new version. Finally, the section on corrosion has been updated to refl ect the latest knowledge and attention has been given to the latest global developments in quay wall engineering.

This new edition of the handbook of Quay Walls provides the reader with essential knowledge for the planning, design, execution and maintenance of quay walls, as well as general information about historical developments and lessons learned from the observation of ports in various countries. Technical chapters are followed by a detailed calculation of a quay wall based on a semi-probabilistic design procedure, which applies the theory presented earlier. Since the publication of the Dutch edition in 2003 and the English version in 2005, considerable new experience has been obtained by the many practitioners using the book, prompting the update of this handbook. Moreover, the introduction of the Eurocodes in 2012 has prompted a complete revision of the Design chapter, which is now compliant with the Eurocodes. Furthermore, additional recommendations for using FEM-analysis in quay wall design have been included. In response to ongoing discussions within the industry about buckling criteria for steel pipe piles, a thorough research project was carried out on steel pipe piles fi lled with sand and on piles without sand. The results of this research programme have also been incorporated in this new version. Finally, the section on corrosion has been updated to refl ect the latest knowledge and attention has been given to the latest global developments in quay wall engineering. The new edition was made possible thanks to the contributions of numerous experts from the Netherlands and Belgium.

Modern tall buildings are generally not considered to be a large contributor to the seismic risk of cities, based on the presumption that they are designed and built with sufficient safeguards to ensure good performance. This is in spite of the fact that current building code provisions have few, if any, provisions to ensure that tall buildings have better performance than other low-rise structures. This implies that a 40-story building is not expected, or designed, to perform any better than a one-story building following a large seismic event, despite the huge differences in the consequences of collapse and/or damage to these type of structures. The performance of a 42-story couple core wall building located in downtown San Francisco, designed using a state-of-the-practice performance-based approach, is evaluated. Two additional structural schemes, damped outriggers and base isolation, and one additional non-structural scheme are investigated. Non-linear response history analysis is conducted on each of the three structural building designs in order to assess the structural performance at five different seismic hazard levels. Subsequently, the expected building repair cost and downtime are estimated for each scheme; there are six schemes in total when considering the additional non-structural design scheme. The baseline building is expected to suffer financial losses exceeding 15% of the total building cost and functional downtime of almost 2 years (84 weeks) following a design level earthquake. The damped outrigger and base isolation schemes are found to reduce financial losses and downtime, with an expected loss of 14% and 10% of the building cost, respectively and an expected functional downtime of 62 weeks and 43 weeks, respectively following a design-level earthquake. The non-structural design alternative, which also includes provisions to reduce building downtime, was found to reduce loss and downtime in all cases. The best performing building is the base-isolated building with enhanced non-structural design, expected to experience losses of 2.4% of the building value and functional downtime of only 6 weeks following a design-level earthquake. A cost-benefit analysis reveals that all schemes are preferable to the baseline building. The payback period for the two structural design alternatives is found to be 4.6 years and 6.6 years for the damped outrigger and the base isolation schemes, respectively, and the payback period for the non-structural design alternatives are 5.3 years, 9.0 years and 8.7 years for the fixed base, damped outrigger and the base isolation schemes, respectively.
