The PoliTO Surface Wave flat-file Database (PSWD)

The Polito Surface Wave flat-file Database (PSWD) is a gathering of experimental measurements collected within the past 25 years at different Italian sites. It is a flat-file database of experimental dispersion curves and shear wave velocity profiles, mainly from active surface wave testing, but including also data from passive surface wave testing and invasive methods. The PSWD can be useful for correlation studies and is made available as a reference benchmark for the validation and verification of novel interpretation procedures by other researchers. The database is published as an open-access journal paper on the Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering.
