Description of the innovation projectAn integrated hardware-software system for vibration measurements and computation of the Horizontal-to-Vertical Spectral Ratio for seismic microzonation and identification of the site period has been developed. It has superior sensing performance, thus allowing accurate measurements of ambient vibrations. An aluminum alloy shell completes the system, making it robust for field applications in geology and geotechnical earthquake engineering.
