Forces acting to the soil structures become different during earthquakes relating to the soil conditions, so design and constructions methods change. Taking precautions and soil improving are necessary for reducing damages in liquefiable and weak soil areas.
Introduction-Earthquakes-Seismic risk and damages-Characteristics of stress-Strain and shear resistance-Dynamic soil tests-Soil amplification-Soil liquefaction-Evaluation methods of soil liquefaction-Precautions against liquifiable soils-Foundation design in seismic risk areas-Slope stability in seismic risk areas-Behaviour of retaining walls duing earthquakes-Numerical methods in the geotechnical earthquake engineering-Presentings homeworks.
