Noise measurements were carried out at 381 sites in the Cologne area (Germany) using both short period and broad band sensors. The large number of data allowed both assesment of the influence of different sensors in the site response estimation and to compare the widely used H/V technique with the recently proposed Fourier Phase Spectral Method (FPSM). The results show that short period sensors are able to reliably retrieve site effects at frequencies well below their corner frequencies.

Abstract

Noise measurements were carried out at 381 sites in the Cologne area (Germany) using both short period and broad band sensors. The large number of data allowed both assesment of the influence of different sensors in the site response estimation and to compare the widely used H/V technique with the recently proposed Fourier Phase Spectral Method (FPSM). The results show that short period sensors are able to reliably retrieve site effects at frequencies well below their corner frequencies. Moreover, the H/V method should be preferred to the FPSM in determining the fundamental resonance frequency of soils. Finally, a map showing the resonance frequency distribution in the studied area was drawn using the results obtained applying the H/V technique.
