Seismic Evaluation of the Near-Surface Foundation Layer Characteristics: A Case Study for a New Industrial City, Aswan, Egypt

Abdelnasser Mohamed


Abstract: It is well known that the first step in the strategic projects is the planning stage, so site characterization acts as the essential factor which should take into consideration during this step for secure project toward natural hazard and disaster. Site characterization plays an important role for sustainable development of societies in earthquake prone areas. Recently, Egypt started a new development era, so many expansion projects initiated in Egypt including many industrial cities to face the future industrial revolution. New Aswan industrial zone classified as one of these cities and lactated near to the principal prone earthquake area in Aswan region, so it became very important to perform the current such study prior any construction for the future earthquake hazard mitigation on the industrial facilities. The scope of this study is the studying the foundation rock?s properties using active and passive seismic techniques (seismic refraction and ambient vibration measurements). Based on the seismic measurements at the selected locations, the zoning map indicated that the area has shallow bedrock without a significant amplification which is a good foundation rocks for engineering targets.
