Project Details


In this project we have developed a method to generate synthetic ground motions by physics-based modeling. Since the ground motion prediction (GMPE) is an essential part of PSHA computation we verify the simulation results with the G-16 GMPE (Graizer) developed for hard rock sites. The agreement between G-16 and our results is good at distances up to 30 km.

Layman's description

A method was developed to model the underground earthquake rupture and the ground shaking resulting from it, up to distances of 30km from the source.
