GEESD V is the fifth decennial Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics Conference organized by the Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics Committee of the Geo-Institute. GEESD V follows the highly successful GEESD conferences in Sacramento, California (2008), Seattle, Washington (1998), Park City, Utah (1988), and Pasadena, California (1978).
Come join the broad community of geoprofessionals working on earthquake engineering and soil dynamics problems at this comprehensive examination of our technical disciplines. The coverage will be diverse, including case histories and practice-oriented papers, recent research findings, innovative technologies and the emerging arts across many of our disciplines. Professional engineers, researchers, specialty contractors, regulators, educators and students will interact across a broad range of keynote and theme lectures, technical sessions, short courses, workshops, discussions, and equipment demonstrations.
Proposed session topics:
- Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis
- Dynamic Site Characterization
- Site Response Analysis
- Liquefaction and its Consequences
- Seismic Stability of Slopes
- Emerging topics (e.g., Induced seismicity)
