Seismic Hazard and Risk Assessment

Itasca has over 20 years of experience in applying seismology to a wide range of engineering applications, allowing engineers to non-destructively monitor structure health and integrity and locate areas of weakness. Services offered include:

  • Perform ground motion review including PGV, PPV, and PGA
  • Follow the protocols developed by relevant national regulators
  • Compare different seismic scales, including intensity scales
  • Provide mitigation advice by combining historical natural and induced seismicity catalogue, the response of local traffic light system, and engineering data
  • Review available information on observed seismicity
  • Integrate the seismic activity with geology, structure (including faults), and in-situ stresses in the target area to avoid potential interference with existing critically stressed faults
  • Monitor the nature, geometry, growth pattern, and extent of the induced fracture network growth during engineering operations
  • Characterize the effects on a variety of civil structures from induced seismic events. This includes:
    • Physical damage or integrity degradation to rocks or reservoirs
    • Physical damage to civil infrastructure, such as buildings, dams, slopes, underground laboratories
    • Human activity interference
