Coupled Site and Soil-Structure Interaction Effects with Application to Seismic Risk Mitigation

The purpose of NATO ARW 983188 Coupled Site and Soil-Structure Interaction Effects with Application to Seismic Risk Mitigation, held in Borovets, Bulgaria, 30 August—3 September 2008, was to present state-of-the-art, onsite, soil-structure interaction effects (SSSI), as manifested in the broader area of south and south-eastern Europe, which is the most seismically prone region of the European continent. Another objective was to attempt to define the seismic risk posed to the built environment in this area and to present modern methods for seismic risk mitigation.

The ARW was very successful and generated an interdisciplinary-type information exchange between the three main groups of participants: geophysicists, geotechnical engineers, and structural engineers. The presentations during the workshop can be grouped into four subject areas:
(1) site conditions and their role in seismic hazard analyses,
(2) soil-structure interaction,
(3) the role of site effects and of soil-structure interaction in the design of structures, and
(4) general and related subjects. The following fields were addressed during the presentations and the discussions: strong ground motion (near-field effects, seismic-wave propagation, free-field motion); geotechnical engineering (slopes, foundations, lifelines, dams, and retaining walls); and structural engineering (buildings, bridges, field measurements, and protective systems).

The work presented in this volume includes contributions from engineers and scientists, mainly from south-eastern Europe and the neighbouring regions of the Near East. The arrangement of contributions in different chapters is not rigorous, and many papers present similar material, which includes broad coverage and different disciplines, since earthquake engineering is by its nature an interdisciplinary subject.
