Since its first introduction in the late 1990s, the multichannel analysis of surface waves (MASW) method has been utilized by an increasing number of practitioners for a growing array of geotechnical projects, and further researched by many investigators worldwide. The MASW method provides one of the most critically important geotechnical parameters-stiffness of ground materials. It provides this information in terms of seismic shear-wave velocity (Vs) distribution in both vertical and horizontal directions. From an elastic theory viewpoint, shear wave velocity (Vs) is the most powerful indicator of a material's stiffness.
This course covers the basics of seismic surface waves, data acquisition, data processing and the fundamentals in such a way that participants can, upon its completion, engage in common applications such as seismic site characterization (Vs-30m) and mapping soil/bedrock shear-wave velocity (Vs) cross sections. It will demonstrate how to process surface-wave data, and each participant will be guided step-by-step in processing actual field data sets.
All geotechnical engineers and researchers dealing with stiffness of ground and pavement can benefit from attending this course and learning about this state-of-the-art seismic technique.
The Primary Objectives of the course are:
Passive Survey- When and how?
