We typically recommend a seismic
analysis for a project when (for example) we think there is a potential for
liquefaction of the subsurface material, or we need to determine the peak
surface accelerations and spectral response accelerations. We use EduPro Civil
System’s, ProShake and Geostudio’s Quake/W software programs to evaluate the
grounds response to earthquakes by generating a representative soil profile and
applying representative earthquake motions to the underlying bedrock.
