BM SUMER Consultancy & Research is organizing a two-day advanced course on “Liquefaction Around Marine Structures”, to be held in Istanbul on September 26-27, 2019. Read more.
Two years after the success of the first course back in 2017, this new course introduces you to wave-induced liquefaction in the marine environment and its effects on structures. Although the focus will be on wave-induced liquefaction, a brief introduction to seismic-induced liquefaction will be also included. The physics of wave-induced liquefaction and mathematical modelling will be described. Potential threats to marine structures such as pipelines, sea outfalls, breakwaters, seawalls, pile structures, gravity structures and rock berms will be discussed. Counter-measures will be included in the discussions. Discussions will be supplemented by video movies from the CD-ROM accompanying the book Liquefaction Around Marine Structures by B. Mutlu Sumer.
