Vs30 Correlations for the Boston Region.

Litton, Daniel.

Abstract: Engineers need Vs30 values for use in earthquake design. Currently in Boston, most projects do not include shear wave velocity (Vs) data due to the high cost of their collection. Vs30 is time-averaged shear wave velocity in the upper 30 meters of the soil profile. This study analyzed different methods for regional estimates of Vs30 using surficial geology, topographic slope, and H/V esti... read more
