Abstract Determination of shear-wave (S-wave) velocity profiles is the first step in seismic hazard assessment of a town, because the dynamic parameters of local soil types are vital for seismic response analysis of a specific area in order to determine the local soil effect in a case of a seismic event for seismic risk analysis. S-wave velocity profiles have been determined for many areas within Győr. Extensive use of historical boring logs allowed for correlations and reasonable extrapolation of soil performance throughout the area. This has led to a pattern of soil layer distributions and delineates several different soil zones for Győr.
