Abstract

Seismic isolation and site effects, an inter-disciplinary investigation at the seismic test site INCERC, Bucharest, Romania M. Baur*, L. Stempniewski*, F. Wenzel^ & D. Lungu^ ^Institute for Concrete Structures and Building Materials, Concrete Structures Division, University of Karlsruhe, Germany * Geophysical Institute, University of Karlsruhe, Germany * Technical University of Civil Engineering, Bucharest, Romania Abstract The Collaborative Research Center 461 (CRC 461) Strong Earthquakes: A Challenge for Geosciences and Civil Engineering (Germany) and the Romanian Group for Strong Vrancea Earthquakes (RGVE) work on a multidisciplinary attempt towards the mitigation of the impact of the next strong Vrancea earthquake (Romania). The recently installed Multidisciplinary Seismic Test Site INCERC (MSTS) located in the eastern part of Bucharest serves as focus to study the entire sequence relevant in engineering seismology including structural dynamics, seismology, soil mechanics, and eng
