Abstract: With the increased use of machines on super structures along with constructions on loose sands and soft clays in Bangladesh, the chances of collateral effects are increasing. Degree of damage during earthquake strongly depends on dynamic characteristics of building as well as amplification of soil. So for measurement of dynamic properties and site amplifications, seismic wave velocities determination is necessary. The paper deals with the use of PS Suspension Logging Downhole Seismic Testing System for measurement of compression and shear wave velocities also determination of the dynamic soil properties and site response using DEEPSOIL (Hashash et al., 2011) V5.1.
