Abstract

In this paper, ground shaking characteristics in residential land in Kanagawa Ward, Yokohama City, Japan are evaluated based on microtremor measurements. In particular, first, 325 measurement sites created with very high dense at not only cutting sites but also banking sites in the residential land of interest. Microtremor H/V spectra are then calculated at the created 325 sites. Based on the H/V spectral ratio, finally, ground shaking characteristics focused on not only peak frequency (Ridge frequency) but also Trough frequency were evaluated. As a result, the T/R frequency ratio of microtremor is one of effective indices to evaluate the ground shaking characteristics in a residential land.

Keywords

Microtremor measurement Ridge frequency Trough frequency T/R ratio Residential land
