Seismic Design Updates for CBC 2019 and Application of Site-Specific (Non-Ergodic) Seismic Hazard Analysis for Ground Motion Optimization

What you will learn:

  • Changes to the seismic provisions in CBC 2019
  • Overview of the non-ergodic seismic hazard analysis for optimization ground motion studies
  • Project case studies

 

The seismic provisions of the CBC 2019 are significantly different from the previous version and require Site-Specific Seismic Hazard Analysis (SHA) for most sites located on Site Class D and E soil conditions. The site-specific SHA under the new code also requires utilization of the Third Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF3), which is more complex than the previous version (UCERF2).

Site-specific, non-ergodic SHA is an increasingly important part of ground-motion hazard characterization for critical projects. While the efforts associated with non-ergodic SHA are considerably higher than traditional, ergodic SHA methods, the resulting ground motion estimates are more accurate and less uncertain, and can result in a more refined and more economical structural design.

Pedro Espinosa, G.E., Associate Engineer, ENGEO

Pedro is an experienced engineer who has worked on many high-profile projects throughout California. He specializes in complex geotechnical explorations, seismic design, earthquake engineering, foundation design, ground improvement, elevated structures, transportation projects, waterfront projects and deep foundations. Pedro is the lead geotechnical engineer for ENGEO's work at the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Los Angeles, Treasure Island in San Francisco, and multiple shoreline redevelopment projects.

David Tegue, phD, P.E., Project Engineer, ENGEO

David joined ENGEO after receiving his PhD from the University of Texas, Austin. He specializes in earthquake engineering and noninvasive subsurface exploration techniques. David performs geotechnical explorations and provides design recommendations for various types of projects. He has performed seismic hazard analyses for a number of high-profile projects. He played an instrumental role in ENGEO's implementation of a specialized technique for predicting earthquake site response known as "non-ergodic site response."
