  • 2. 1.1.1. DEFINITIONS■ Earthquake Engineering • can be defined as the branch of engineering devoted to mitigating earthquake hazards. In this broad sense, earthquake engineering covers the i h investigation and solution of the problems created b i i d l i f h bl d by damaging earthquakes, and consequently the work involved in the practical application of these solutions, i.e. in planning, designing, constructing and managing earthquake resistant structures and earthquake‐resistant facilities.■ Scope • Seismicity ,Nature, Measures and Recording of earthquakes. • Planning for Seismic Risk Assessment & Mitigation • Analysis, Design and Construction of Earthquake Resistant Structures • Evaluation of Buildings for Earthquake Resistance • Retrofitting f Earthquake d R t fitti of E th k damaged St t d Structures • Earthquake Management and Security
  • 3. 1.1.1. DEFINITIONS■ An Earthquake • is the motion or vibration, sometimes violent, of the earth’s surface that follows  a  release  of  energy in  the  earth’s  crust.  This  energy  can  be  generated  by  a  sudden dislocation of segments of the crust, by a volcanic eruption, or even by  sudden dislocation of segments of the crust by a volcanic eruption or even by manmade explosions.■ Sources of Ground Movements • Tectonic Earthquakes • Volcanoes l • Explosions • Collapse of Mines & Large Reservoirs • Tsunami

  • 18. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesTectonic Earthquakesare caused by the sudden dislocation of large rock masses alonggeological faults within the earths crust. The Earth is formed ofseveral l l layers that h h have very diffdifferent physical and chemical h i l d h i lproperties. The outer layer, which averages about 70 kilometersin thickness, consists of about a dozen large, irregularly shapedplates that slide over under and past each other on top of the over,partly molten inner layer .Most earthquakes occur at theboundaries where the plates meet . Plate Tectonic Interactions Flash movieDr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 19. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesVolcanic Earthquakes Earthquakes that can be reasonably associated with volcanoes are relatively rare and fall into three categories: (i) volcanic explosions, (ii) shallow earthquakes from magma movements, and (iii) sympathetic tectonic earthquakes Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 20. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesExplosions Earthquakes may be produced q y pby the undergrounddetonation of chemical ornuclear devices When a devices.nuclear device is detonated ina borehole underground,enormous nuclear energy isreleased .Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 21. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesCollapse Earthquakes Collapse earthquakes are small earthquakes occur in regions of underground caverns and mines. The immediate cause of ground shaking is the sudden collapse of the roof g g p of the mine or cavern. Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 22. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesLarge Reservoir-induced Earthquakes Reservoir- The idea that earthquakes might be triggered by impounding q g gg y p g surface water is not new. The first detailed evidence of such an effect came with the filling of Lake Mead behind Hoover Dam (height 221 m. After impounding began , reports of local shaking became prevalent. b l t Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 23. 1.2.1. Causes of EarthquakesTsunamiUnderwater earthquakes,volcanoes, or landslidescan produce a tsunami ortidal wave. This wave cantravel very rapidlythousands of miles acrossthe ocean. In deep waterthe tsunami may only raisethe ocean level by a fewcentimeters,centimeters hardly enoughto notice. But as itapproaches land, theshallower water causes thewave to build in height toas much as 10-20 metersor more and suddenlyflood coastal areas Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 24. 1.2.2. FaultsDefinition A fault is a fracture within some particular rocky mass within the earths crust. Th d h and h The depth d length of faults vary greatly. Faults may range in length from few meters to many kilometers and are drawn on a geological map as continuous or broken lines. Earthquakes are caused by q y active faults, that is, faults along faults which the two sides of the fracture move with respect to each other. S an earthquake i h th So, th k is caused by the sudden movement of the two sides of a fault with respect to another . Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr

  • 26. 1.2.2. FaultsTectonic Plates Dr. Osman Shalan Dr. Tharwat Sakr
  • 27. 1.2.2. Faults Types of Faults a) Normal faults These occur in response to pulling or tension: the overlying bl k i h l i block moves down the dip of the fault plane. movie b) Thrust (reverse) faults These occur in response to squeezing or compression: the overlying block moves up the dip y g p p of the fault plane. movie c) Strike‐slip (lateral) faults Strike‐ These occur in response to either type of stress: th bl k move t f t the blocks horizontally past one another . movieProf.Dr. Osman Shaalan Earthquake Engineering Dr. Tharwat Sakr

  • 29. 1.2.2. Faults Earthquake Focus The point on the fault where rupture initiates is referred to as the f h focus or h hypocentert of an earthquake. The hypocenter of an earthquake is described by q y its depth in kilometers, its map location in latitude and The term epicenter is the longitude, its date and time point on the earth’s surface earth s of occurrence, and i f d its directly above the magnitude hypocenterProf. Dr. Osman Shaalan Earthquake Engineering Dr. Tharwat Sak
