Field of Active Research

Dr. Pezeshk’s research interests encompass all phases of engineering seismology and earthquake engineering; in particular, ground motion prediction, site effects, site characterization, probabilistic seismic hazard analyses, and strong ground motions and their impact on structures.

Dr. Pezeshk’s expertise include:

  • Site Specific Studies

  • Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis

  • Shear Wave Testing for Seismic Design:

    • Refraction Microtremor (ReMi)

    • Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW and MSASW)- Surface Measurements

    • Seismic Refraction and Reflection

    • Surface and Borehole Velocity Measurements

    • Vs30 - Surface Measurement

    • Downhole Seismic Survey - Borehole Measurements

    • Crosshole Seismic Survey - Borehole Measurement

     

  • Probable Maximum Loss (PML) Studies

  • Liquefaction Studies

  • Vibration Studies:

    • Vibration Monitoring

    • Analysis of Building Vibrations

    • Analysis of Vibration Attenuation
