The Seismic Activity and Management entail the process of programming and managing the risks associated with Earthquakes. The responsibilities of the managers include the outreach and education of other members of the society on the awareness and dangers of earthquakes and emergency programs. Similarly, the manager assists the state with the development of measures that helps in reducing the risks associated with earthquakes (Yates & Paquette, 2011). The manager also promotes training programs on disaster responses as well as providing the technical support towards the development of various infrastructures in a country. Therefore, the manager coordinates the earthquake programs and the updating of responsibilities of every team player.
The management of Earthquake management would require knowledge of Basic Geotechnics that helps in learning the essentials of soil mechanism. The course can also help in the provision of knowledge of the engineering properties of soil and the formation of construction-related programs that can be affected by earthquakes (Yates & Paquette, 2011). The program as well ensures that the learners are aware of the pile foundations and soil permeability to enhance the understanding of soil properties that can be affected by any forces.
Additionally, vibration analysis is a course that constitutes the knowledge of detecting the precursors of machine or infrastructure failures. For example, the earthquake managers are aware of the causes of the destruction of infrastructures in the understanding of Vibration analysis. Furthermore, the analysis of vibration can facilitate the process of completing the bridge in the Thornton Idaho. Understanding the causes of vibration such as the early detection of the failures would help the completion of the project on a timely basis (Yates & Paquette, 2011). Therefore, vibration analysis can be considered as a tool for the development of various infrastructures incorporated with the knowledge of Basic Geotechnics that is found in the course of Seismic Activity and Management.
