TC203 Earthquake

Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and Associated Problems

At a regional level: Encourage the participation of TC203 members at regional workshops and conferences and organize specialized workshops (i.e. after large earthquakes, code initiatives etc). Participation of TC203 members in international survey committees or coordination of survey committees after large earthquake. At an international level: To investigate the most appropriate way to create (or/and upgrade) the web page of TC203 in the framework of the existing web page of ISSMGE and other related WebPages and portals To propose an award prize for an outstanding young researcher(s) after adequate and severe selection process. To actively support the Bulletin of Geotechnical Engineering and the Journal of Case Histories To encourage and support the production of high level monographs on specific subjects

To explore the possibilities to disseminate widely (through specialized portals) high quality experimental data, observations surveys, reconnaissance reports and design-construction reports on significant structures To define few topics for future TC203 generic activities like

(i) Performance Based Design in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, (ii) Liquefaction and associated phenomena,

(iii) Site characterization, Site Effects and Design ground motion for different typology of structures (i.e. ordinary modern buildings, monuments, lifelines, infrastructures etc.),

(iv) Large Scale Facilities in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering,

(v) Numerical and physical procedures, (vi) Seismic codes,

(vii) Soil Structure Interaction, etc. To create Working Groups on specific subjects. Establish permanent links with global activities (in particular with GEER and GEM) and between research-academia and profession.

To host and endorse international conferences, symposiums and other events. To continue the already established and very successful activities such as the International Conferences of Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, the Satellite Conferences in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering in World Conferences and the TC203 supported conferences like the Performance Based Design Conference

To improve the link and the participation in TC203 of the construction industry. Active support of the construction and consulting industry of the activities of TC203 has to be explored Use the website as a source of information that is available to all members. Endeavour to get all country representatives to recommend published papers and reports that they consider represent best current practice in their region or particular field of expertise. Encourage country representatives to submit case history data showing recent examples of good practice. To create Working Groups on specific subjects.
