Seismic Risk Assessment & Earthquake Engineering
GeoSystems experts have extensive experience in seismic geology and engineering, including IBC 2009 site classification, site specific design response studies, seismic risk assessment, identification of the causative fault and liquefaction potential analysis and mitigation.
GeoSystems analysis of site specific design response spectrum can improve design spectral response acceleration parameters SDS and SD1 which may improve a project's IBC 2009 seismic design category saving design and construction costs.
GeoSystems personnel obtained much of this experience while performing preliminary safely analysis reports (PSARs) for highly sensitive nuclear power plants. Whether the project lies in California, well-known for its earthquakes, or in Pennsylvania, GeoSystems is able to provide the appropriate level of seismic evaluation.
