    Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) offer an efficient method for finding optimal cleanup strategies for hazardous plumes contaminating groundwater by allowing hydrologists to rapidly search through millions of possible strategies to find the most inexpensive and effective containment of contaminants and aquifer restoration. ANNs also provide a faster method of developing systems that classify seismic events as being earthquakes or underground explosions.Farid Dowla and Leah Rogers have developed a number of ANN applications for researchers and students in hydrology and seismology. This book, complete with exercises and ANN algorithms, illustrates how ANNs can be used in solving problems in environmental engineering and the geosciences, and provides the necessary tools to get started using these elegant and efficient new techniques.Following the development of four primary ANN algorithms (backpropagation, self-organizing, radial basis functions, and hopfield networks), and a discussion of important issues in ANN formulation (generalization properties, computer generation of training sets, causes of slow training, feature extraction and preprocessing, and performance evaluation), readers are guided through a series of straightforward yet complex illustrative problems. These include groundwater remediation management, seismic discrimination between earthquakes and underground explosions, automated monitoring for acoustic and seismic sensor data, estimation of seismic sources, geospatial estimation, lithologic classification from geophysical logging, earthquake forecasting, and climate change. Each chapter contains detailed exercises often drawn from field data that use one or more of the four primary ANN algorithms presented.

  • Controlling Civil Infrastructures

    Controls is well-established in most of the major engineering disciplines- electrical, chemical, mechanical, aerospace. Historically, an important exception has been civil engineering, and, as this chapter illustrates, recent developments are bridging the gap. The importance of understanding the dynamics of civil structures has been recognized since the 1940 Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse, but feedback control of buildings, bridges, towers, and other structures is a relatively recent development. The concept of active control for such systems was first introduced in 1972. Since then, a vast literature has been generated on the topic, and, more impressively, a number of successful implementations have been completed (the first full-scale one in 1989). Many of the largest applications have been to buildings in Japan, driven by the desire to achieve protection against earthquakes. The first implementation of structural control was based on active mass dampers (AMDs). An AMD system couples an auxiliary mass to the structure through an actuator. Sensor measurements of building movement and stresses are used in a control algorithm to move the auxiliary mass relative to the building. Such systems are versatile and capable, but issues of reliability and power consumption have driven the search for improvements. The next significant development was controllers that employed a combination of active and passive devices. These hybrid active/passive control systems (no relationship to the hybrid discrete/continuous systems discussed in Chapter 7) rely on one of two approaches: hybrid mass damping and hybrid base isolation. The former is especially popular. The largest building in Japan, the Yokohama Landmark Tower, incorporates two hybrid mass dampers (HMDs), each weighing 170 tons. The most recent innovation is the semiactive control device. These devices cannot i nject mechanical energy into the structure but have properties that can be manipulated to achieve structural disturbance rejection. In many cases, they can operate on battery power; this is a significant advantage since seismic events can interrupt main power supplies. Examples of semiactive devices include variable-orifice fluid dampers, variable-stiffness devices, variable-friction devices, controllable and tuned liquid dampers, and magnetorheological dampers. The last topic is discussed at some length in this chapter, and experimental results are shown.

  • Application of Evolutionary Programming To Earthquake Hypocenter Determination

    As models of seismic velocity in the Earth's crust are refined to accommodate larger and better data sets, they tend to become locally "rough" where they are best resolved, with nonplanar interfaces, and complex structures. This means that perturbation techniques which rely on differentiability of travel- times with respect to source coordinates are likely to fail, or to give erroneous results with little evidence that the answer is wrong. With even relatively simple three-dimensional structures involving dipping discontinuities, correct identification of seismic arrivals--or "phases"--can be problematic, and precise event locations elusive. We investigate the applicability of evolutionary programming to this problem and conclude that it yields satisfactory results, provided that no gross errors are present in the observations. Realistic applications to routine locations of earthquakes in a three-dimensional crustal model call for an effective ray tracing and travel time calculation strategy.

  • Deformation in the Presence of Fluids and Mineral Reactions

    Natural and experimental deformation of fault rocks show that fluid flow and mineral reactions are linked to fracturing in a nonlinear feedback relationship that potentially affects the displacement and stress histories of large faults. These interactions spawn instabilities that are expressed as episodic seismic events involving cataclasis, which alternate with slow, aseismic deformation involving pressure-solution creep, as well as healing and sealing by fluid-assisted mass transfer. This chapter focuses on the timescale of these processes during the earthquake cycle, with special emphasis on the evolution of rheological and transport properties of fault rock during the interseismic period. Fracturing weakens faults dramatically by enhancing the kinetics of pressure-solution creep and of mineral reactions. Therefore, during the postseismic period and initial part of the interseismic period, weakening is faster than fault strengthening by healing and sealing of fractures. During the interseismic period, mass transfer associated with fluid-assisted chemical reactions smoothes asperities on fault surfaces, heals fractures and enhances the formation of a foliation parallel to the fault plane, and decreases permeability. If advective fluid inflow is significant, this can increase pore-fluid pressure and reduce effective shear strength, at least locally within the fault. In the long term, however, the combined effect of fracturing, pressure-solution creep, and sealing is to restore the rheological and transport properties of the fault during the interseismic period, setting the stage for renewed stress build-up and seismicity. We demonstrate the salient characteristics of fluid-assisted fault weakening and strengthening with a one-dimensional model of an idealized fault zone undergoing simple shear at constant velocity. The model shows that the kinetics of the weakening a nd strengthening processes determine the relative rates of shear stress decrease and increase during the interseismic period. The kinetics of dissolution precipitation and mineral reactions are therefore expected to exert an important control on the recurrence time of earthquakes.

  • Continental Fault Structure and Rheology from the Frictional-to-Viscous Transition Downward

    Faulting is an expression of the interaction between rock rheology, kinematic boundary conditions, and associated stress fields. The structure and rheology of faults vary with depth, such that pressure-dependent frictional behavior predominating in the upper, brittle part of the crust is transitional to strongly temperature- and rate-dependent behavior in the lower part of the crust and mantle. This frictional-to-viscous transition (FVT) is characterized by changes in rock structure, rheology, and fluid activity that are closely tied to the earthquake cycle. As such, the FVT is a first-order decoupling zone, whose depth and lateral extent vary in time. Brittle, sometimes seismic, instabilities perturb the ambient stress field within the lithosphere on timescales ranging from seconds to years. These instabilities are measurable as transient motions of the Earth's surface and are manifest both at, and below, the FVT by the development of structural anisotropies (fractures, foliations). Surface motion studies of plate-boundary strike-slip faults indicate that shearing below the FVT is more localized in the lower crust than in the upper mantle. Structural investigations of exhumed shear zones reveal that this localization involves the nucleation of fractures at the FVT, as well as the buckling and rotation of existing foliations below the FVT. In some cases, rotation of these surfaces can initiate transient deformation, transferring stress upward and potentially triggering earthquakes. The networking of shear zones on several length scales allows them to function as decoupling horizons that partition three-dimensional strain within the lithosphere. The simplification of fault geometry with progressive strain lends justification to the use of laboratory-derived flow laws to estimate the bulk rock rheology on length scales at which strain is homogeneous. In general, the longer the timeand length scales of faulting considered, the greater the potential influence of the kinematic and thermal history on the rheology of the fault system. Taken together, studies suggest that future fault modeling must include parameters that quantify the thermal and structural aspects of rock history, as well as the fluid activity in and around faults.

  • Seismic Fault Rheology and Earthquake Dynamics

    As preparation for this Dahlem Workshop on The Dynamics of Fault Zones, specifically on the subtopic "Rheology of Fault Rocks and Their Surroundings," we addressed critical research issues for understanding the seismic response of fault zones in terms of the constitutive response of fault materials. This requires new concepts and a host of new observations and experiments to document material response, to understand the shear localization process and the inception of earthquake instability, and especially to understand the mechanisms of fault weakening and dynamics of rupture tip propagation and arrest during rapid, possibly large, slip in natural events. We examine in turn the geological structure of fault zones and its relation to earthquake dynamics, the description of rate and state friction at slow rates appropriate to the interseismic period and earthquake nucleation, and the dynamics of fault weakening during rapid slip. The last topic gets special attention in view of the important recent advances in theoretical concepts and experiments to probe the range of slip rates prevailing during earthquakes. We then address the assembly of the constitutive framework into viable, but necessarily simplified, conceptual and computational models for description of the dynamics of crustal earthquake rupture. This is done principally in the slip-weakening framework, and we examine some of the uncertainties in doing so, and issues of how new understanding of the rapid large slip range will be integrated to model the traction evolution and the weakening process during large slip episodes.
