Alaska struck by a massive M 7.0 earthquake

The region of Anchorage, Alaska, was struck by a massive M 7.0 on November 30, 2018.

A sophisticated numerical study comes to verify the engineering practice regarding the use of soil filters in dams' earthquake protection. The specific method has been in use for over half a century, with design standards relying exclusively on experimental studies. The new study now offers the capability to further investigate the effectiveness of soil filter use and explore new earthquake-proofing arrangements.
