Major earthquakes have resulted in huge economic and human loss. In many cases these damages could have been avoided if the original design had correctly identified the geohazards at the site and incorporated the philosophy of performance based design. In this talk several examples will be presented where the different stages of risk assessment will be identified and possible solutions incorporated in the final design. This talk will also highlight some gaps in existing knowledge where more research is needed.

This talk is part of the Engineering Department Geotechnical Research Seminars series.
