Would you mean a Vs[5-30] instead of a Vs[30]? gprofile that does this type of calculation does not implement such case. Maybe you can build of formula from Vs[30] and Vs[5]...?

Code: Select all

Vs[5-30]=(30*Vs[30]-5*Vs[5])/25


I decline all responsibility upon the usage of such formula, or simply Vs30. Use at your own risk.

no, i need to calcolate Vs30 from -5m at -35m (as well as the italian law says) because the laying of foundation is placed at -5m

You can use the same formula, replacing Vs[30] by Vs[35]:

Code: Select all

Vs[5-35]=(35*Vs[35]-5*Vs[5])/30


Vs[35] and Vs[5] are calculated with 'gpprofile' with option '-average-at'
