Robb Moss Publishes 3 Journal Papers & Textbook
Geotechnical engineering Professor Robb Moss has recently published 3 journal papers and a textbook. His papers "Liquefied Strength and its Relationship to Effective Stress" and "Large-Scale Liquefaction and Post-Liquefaction Shake Table Testing" were published in the Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. His paper "Prior and future earthquake effects in Valdivia, Chile" was published in Obras Y Proyectos, Edicion 27. Moss's textbook "Applied Civil Engineering Risk Analysis, 2nd Edition" discusses applied fundamental statistics, probability, reliability, and decision theory as these pertain to problems in Civil Engineering.
Moss has been a professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California since 2005. He earned a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering, with minors in engineering seismology and structural reliability. His research and consulting focuses on the physics and probability of natural hazards such as; strong ground motions, seismic soil liquefaction, surface fault rupture, seismic induced landslides, debris flow, and others. His teaching includes undergraduate and graduate courses in geotechnical engineering, engineering risk analysis, geological engineering, earthquake engineering, and others.
