This paper presents the outcome of an on-line survey sponsored by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies (NAS) on the current state of development of tools, techniques, and practices for performing site response analysis.
The core participants of the survey were select Departments of Transportation (DOTs) of states affected by seismicity, collectively referred to as the T-3+ states, and engineering firms involved with DOT projects. The processed results of the survey provide an insight into the manner in which site response analyses are currently performed, how material parameters and design ground motions are selected, which site response programs are used in DOT practices, and how results of site response analyses are interpreted in contemporary geotechnical earthquake engineering practice for highway facilities in T-3+ states.
