Request for Proposals on Site Response: PEER Lifelines Program

PEER is pleased to announce a new Request for Proposals on Site Response for the PEER Lifelines Program.  
This RFP is seeking proposals that will develop an amplification function that can be used to modify a response spectrum (at surface) to account for the impact of liquefaction.  Emphasis is on identification of conditions resulting in amplification and the magnitude and period range of the amplification.  Typical factors may include level and duration of shaking, relative density of the liquefied soil, and thickness and depth of the liquefied strata.

View the detailed solicitation, proposal template, and submission instructions.

The deadline for technical proposal submissions is May 11, 2012.

For this solicitation, only public institutions within the PEER Core Universities are eligible to submit proposals due to requirements by the funding source.
The goal of the PEER Lifelines program is to improve seismic safety and reliability of lifeline systems.  For more information, visit the Lifelines Website.
