Isotope Geology

Radiogenic and strong isotopes are used broadly within the earth sciences to figure out the a long time of rocks, meteorites and archeological items, and as tracers to appreciate geological and environmental techniques. Isotope tools make certain the age of the Earth, aid reconstruct the weather of the prior, and clarify the formation of the chemical parts within the Universe.

Example text

1. The engineering seismic base layer defined for port facilities (Ports and Harbours Bureau, Ministry of Transport 1999) and for road bridge (Japan Road Association 2002) seems to correspond to the layers with SPT N-value of 50. On the other hand, definition in the buildings (Construction Ministry 2000) seems to indicate layers deeper than the N D 50 layer because a layer with N D 50 appears when Vs is a little larger than 300 m/s in many cases. Considering the definition of the engineering seismic base layer, a specified earthquake motion at the engineering seismic base layer is preferable not to be affected by the behavior in the subsurface layers.

This book also uses SHAKE as if it was a noun. Unlike the name “equivalent,” SHAKE is an approximate method and has a few limitations, and attempts to overcome them were made. Improvements were mainly made by considering frequency-dependent characteristics in stiffness and/or damping. For example, the computer program FDEL (Sugito et al. 1994) improved © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015 N. 1007/978-94-017-9460-2__2 23 24 2 Introduction of Seismic Ground Response Analysis one limitation, and DYNEQ (Yoshida et al.

After preparing all these data, the seismic ground response analysis can be executed ( 17 ). Then the engineer needs to evaluate the results whether they are rational or not considering the result from various points of view ( 18 ), and the job terminates. The last step, evaluation or engineering judgment, is very important as can be seen in the case studies referred in Chap. 15.
