Amount of vibration received in any location can be analysed by conducting ground response analysis. Even though there are three different methods available in this analysis, One Dimensional ground response analysis method has been widely used. Shear wave velocity is one of the key parameters in this analysis. A lot of correlations have been formulated to determine shear wave velocity with cone penetration test. In this study, correlations developed for Quaternary geological age have been selected. Six equations have been adopted comprise of all soil and soil type dependent correlations. Two platforms sites consist of clay and combination of clay and sand have been analysed. Shear velocity to be used in ground response analysis has been obtained. Results have been illustrated in graphs where shear velocity for each case has been plotted. In avoiding under or over predicting of shear wave velocity, the average of all soil and soil type dependent results will be used as final Vs value. © 2018 Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
