    Abstract: Generation of an artificial earthquake ground motion for specific purpose mainly to develop a ground motion time-history at the ground surface as a basis to design and assess the structure at a site due to the earthquake load, so the thing should be carried out. To see the effect of the soil response to the earthquake ground motions frequency chara... Show More

    Abstract: When a strong earthquake occurs, buildings are often damaged in varying degrees. The safety assessment of earthquake-damaged buildings is an important part of post-earthquake emergency rescue work. The aim of safety assessment is to quickly and effectively assess the safety of damaged buildings and reduce the loss of life and property of people in ... Show More

    Abstract: The structural behavior of pavements can be affected by seasonal variation in environmental factors such as temperature and moisture content. In Ethiopia the design, construction and maintenance process of roads mostly give attention to structural thickness of pavement layers, on which the designers and authoring focus on expected future traffic.
