Earthquakes

Itasca’s engineers have wide experience working on earthquake engineering, microseismic measurement and analyses, and explosive and impulsive loading; Itasca’s commercial software is the best available for dynamic modeling for engineering design, factor of safety prediction, research and testing, and back-analysis of failure. The finite volume strength reduction method (FV-SRM) approach can incorporate structural elements for soil-structure interaction, hydrodynamic effects, and groundwater pore pressure and flow for time-dependent pore pressure change associated with liquefaction. Itasca uses the most advanced 2D liquefaction constitutive models available (UBCSand and PM4Sand) and has developed a new 3D liquefaction constitutive mode, P2PSand, that is based on standard soil property data.
