About
Dr Bambang Setiawan

The aim of Dr Bambang Setiawan’s PhD research, completed in 2018, was to quantify the site amplification characteristics of Adelaide’s regolith with respect to earthquake loading. These characteristics will enable engineers to more accurately predict the behaviour of a range of structures subjected to earthquake loads of varying magnitude. This was important as fault lines within 100 km of Adelaide present the greatest threat of an earthquake magnitude of 7+, with the Para Fault presenting the highest threat. Quantifying the soil response due to seismic ground motion and its relationship to structural behaviour is paramount for robust and effective design of infrastructure.

Bambang is now a lecturer at the University of Syiah Kuala, Indonesia.

Student project

This research is quantifying the amplification characteristics of Adelaide’s regolith (loose material covering rock) in relation to earthquake loading. These characteristics will enable engineers to more accurately predict the behaviour of a range of structures subjected to earthquake loads of varying magnitude. The project will also enable regulators to more accurately evaluate earthquake risk.
