Richart Lecture: The Increasing Role of Seismic Measurements in Geotechnical Engineering

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 3:30pm
Presenter: 
Kenneth H. Stokoe, II, Jennie C. and Milton T. Graves Chair, Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Department. The University of Texas at Austin

The geotechnical engineer has always been faced with the problem of characterizing near-surface materials. The near-surface region is often within 10 to 100 m of the ground surface. Traditionally, field exploration programs involved boring, sampling, and penetration testing. In the 1960s, in-situ geophysical measurements began to be employed in geotechnical engineering. This work primarily involved seismic (stress wave) measurements at small strains which were adapted from exploration geophysics. These measurements were used to characterize geotechnical sites (e.g.

Buildings, Beneficial Microbes, and Health

Evidence on the beneficial role of the human microbiome on human health continues to unfold. Bacteria and fungi in buildings exert an influence on the human microbiome through inhalation, aerosol deposition, surface contact, and human and animal interactions. As the identities and functions of beneficial human microbes emerge, the consequences of building design, operation, and function must be understood to maintain the health of occupants in buildings.
