EERI Technical Seminar on PEER NGA West 2

EERI, in cooperation with the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) and partner organizations, will hold its 2013 Technical Seminar Series focusing on the PEER NGA-West2 Project in November. The technical seminar series is supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The PEER NGA-West2 Project addresses important ground motion hazard issues including: updating the popular database of recorded ground motion, developing new ground motion prediction equations, scaling of response spectra for a wide range of damping values, directivity and directionality of ground motion, and new recommendations for soil amplification factors for building code applications. The PEER NGA-West2 Project is coordinated by PEER and financially supported by the CEA, Caltrans, and PG&E.

The technical seminar series will describe the NGA-West2 findings and its impacts for the earthquake engineering community.

Who Should Attend
Geotechnical, Lifeline, and Structural Engineers; Seismologists; Engineering Geologists; Urban Planners; Insurance Professionals; Students; and Risk Modelers.

Attendees will receive 6.25 PDHs (Professional Development Hours).
