The Rockhound Platform – Installation & Operations

Rockhound is a software platform designed to implement real time data acquisition from digitizers and perform vital functions based upon that data to meet the needs of the end user.

In this session, Dennis Pumphrey will cover two of our most-requested topics. He will provide a live demonstration outlining the installation of Rockhound, and the operation of RockMonitor!

First, he set up RockMonitor from scratch and configure multiple Rock units to demonstrate remote configuration, file retrieval, and status monitoring. Second, Dennis will set up a PC-based installation of Rockhound, demonstrating the simplicity of connecting to digitizers and the creation of a PC-based continuous recorder.

This informative webinar + Q&A is a Must-See for operators, researchers, and engineers interested in the world-class Rockhound platform.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The ARGONET (Greece) Seismic Observatory: An Accelerometric Vertical Array

The ARGOstoli NETwork (ARGONET) consists of a vertical seismic array and a nearby free-field station located in Cephalonia, western Greece, in the vicinity of the Cephalonia Transform Fault Zone (CTFZ) which is characterized by some of the highest seismic activity levels in Europe.

In this session, special guest speakers Dr. Nikolaos Theodoulidis & Dr. Fabrice Hollender will walk us through this amazing project, describing the infrastructure and the scientific results it has enabled. The speakers will also present tests carried out to demonstrate the efficiency of the innovative ‘glass bead’ coupling solution, as well as a procedure followed to estimate the sensors’ orientation by using signals from distant large magnitude earthquakes.

ARGONET is intended to investigate the effects of local surface geology on the incoming seismic wavefield, with emphasis on strong ground motion. The vertical array is composed of accelerometer sensors placed on the ground surface at 5.6, 15.5, 40.1, and 83.4m depths.

ARGONET started operation in July 2015, and as of 30 April 2017, had generated high-quality recordings of nearly 1,000 local and regional earthquakes. The event dataset and metadata are openly available.

ARGONET data have already enabled several scientific studies, including the spectacular demonstration of variations in shear wave propagation velocity and site response as a function of rainfall; as well as the qualification of a method based on the use of seismic coda for the estimation of the site effects and of the earthquake source time function.

This informative webinar + Q&A is a must-see for researchers, operators, and engineers.

Qantix Q8 – Introducing the Most Capable Seismic Data Acquisition System

In this session, Dr. Edelvays Spassov will introduce the ultra-low powered, high-resolution Qantix Q8 seismic system.

The Q8 is the newest member of the Quanterra® family of ultra-high resolution data acquisition systems at ultra-low power consumption. Small in size and volume the Q8 is designed for “plug’n play” into existing Q330-based networks or portable deployments and offers the same reliability, extraordinary temperature stability and data redundancy.

This informative webinar + Q&A will help engineers, researchers, and operators understand what the future of data acquisition looks like.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Big Data: A New Research Frontier in Earthquake Engineering

Recent advances in performance-based earthquake engineering and existing information technologies provide opportunities to develop extremely granular inventories of the built environment and assess its vulnerabilities to earthquakes as well as other hazards.

In this session, special guest speaker Dr. Ertugrul Taciroglu will focus the discussion on bridges — which are arguably the most critical elements of a transportation network — and delineate the ingredients needed to bring a regional seismic assessment tool to fruition.

These ingredients range from site-specific ground motion estimation to automated development of analysis models for bridges using data harvested from publicly available repositories, to damage and economic loss assessment. After identifying the ingredients, Dr. Taciroglu will articulate an overall framework for regional risk assessment of transportation networks.

Our guest speaker also provides an example to demonstrate the viability of the envisioned approach, and discusses its natural extensions to other areas including structural performance monitoring and rapid post-event assessment.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Seismic Monitoring and Building Code Compliance with the iCOBI 3 System

Seismic Monitoring and Building Code Compliance with the iCOBI 3 System

Seismic monitoring systems provide valuable data and information on the behavior of buildings leading to improved understanding and better design codes.

In this session, Narek Abrahamian will discuss the reasons many municipalities (e.g. City of Los Angeles, CA USA) require seismic instrumentation or offer benefits such as reduced inspection time as part of a building occupancy resumption program (e.g. BORP San Francisco, CA USA). He will share how the iCOBI 3 system fulfills these needs and more.

This informative webinar + Q&A will provide engineers, building managers, and emergency management professionals detailed information on how best to approach seismic building code compliance.
