Cascadia Ground Motion Estimates in Comparison to ODOT Design Criteria

The main benefit of better understanding the implications of the CSZ-specific ground-motions to Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will be an improved analytical basis to either validate the existing CSZ design criteria, or potentially modify them. Design recommendations will be developed based on the findings of this research, recommendations that could directly affect the design of new bridges and the assessment of existing bridges. The project will also allow for closer collaboration with related activities in Washington State and California.
