Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that is not addressed below, please contact the QuakeCoRE Support Team via email: quakecore@canterbury.ac.nz.

What is an example of a deliverable, how is this different from the activities that I will do as part of the project?

A project deliverable should be specific and directly related to the objectives of your project, deliverables should be measurable and represent a completed component of the project. It is assumed that all projects will present a poster at the QuakeCoRE Annual Meeting and seek to  publish the research in a peer reviewed publication research paper, whilst these can be included as part of a project deliverables, focus should remain on those project specific outputs that relate directly to the research objectives of the project. Some examples of deliverables which are clearly aligned to a project proposal’s objectives are listed below:

Example 1

Objective: Develop and experimentally validate a low-cost, robust viscous damper that offers custom, design-specific viscous damping in any one (or more) quadrants of the force-displacement response plot.

Deliverable: Two manufactured device prototype designs with costing; one stepped cylinder design and a single diameter cylinder.

Example 2

Objective: Utilize full 3D waveform tomography to iteratively improve the version 1.0 Canterbury velocity model using over 250 events in the Mw 3.0 – 4.5 range.

Deliverable: Complete Version 2 of the Canterbury Velocity model based on F3DT methodology.
