The recent visit of some members of the research group of Prof. G.Gazetas and Prof. E.Vintzileou (National Technical University of Athens) was the initiation of an effort to provide some explanations on several aspects of the Christchurch and Darfield earthquakes, following a multi-disciplinary approach, as our group consists of both geotechnical and structural engineers. A very first draft of some of our preliminary results has been submitted to the upcoming National Turkish Conference in Istanbul and posted to the EERI Eqclearinghouse (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4973448/7UDMK_Smyrou_etal_final.pdf) . Any comments are welcome.
