Harmonic wavelet analysis is a tool that has been developed over the past 15 years for the analysis of non-stationary signals in the time-frequency domain. This paper discusses the use of this technique and its application to the problems of soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. Specific reference is made to the use of this technique in investigating the performance of liquefiable slopes in centrifuge model earthquakes and the investigation of earthquake accelerograms.
