Critical Parameters Affecting Bias and Variability in Site‐Response Analyses Using KiK‐net Downhole Array Data
Because of the limited number of strong‐motion records that have measured ground response at large strains, any statistical analyses of seismic site‐response models subject to strong ground motionsExpand

Shear-Wave Velocity–Based Probabilistic and Deterministic Assessment of Seismic Soil Liquefaction Potential
AbstractShear-wave velocity (Vs) offers a means to determine the seismic resistance of soil to liquefaction by a fundamental soil property. This paper presents the results of an 11-year internationalExpand

A taxonomy of site response complexity
Abstract A few extensively studied downhole seismic arrays are commonly used in detailed site response studies. Thus, there is a critical need to increase the number of sites that are used to compareExpand

Regional Correlations of VS30 and Velocities Averaged Over Depths Less Than and Greater Than 30 Meters
Using velocity profiles from sites in Japan, California, Turkey, and Europe, we find that the time-averaged shear-wave velocity to 30 m (VS30), used as a proxy for site amplification in recentExpand

Development of a globally applicable model for near real-time prediction of seismically induced landslides
Substantial effort has been invested to understand where seismically induced landslides may occur in the future, as they are a costly and frequently fatal threat in mountainous regions. The goal ofExpand

A Flatfile for the KiK-net Database Processed Using an Automated Protocol
We present an automated protocol for automated processing of the Kiban-Kyoshin network (KiK-net) GM database and produce a flatfile from these data for use in GMPE development. Expand

Path Durations for Use in the Stochastic‐Method Simulation of Ground Motions
The stochastic method of ground-motion simulation assumes that the en- ergy in a target spectrum is spread over a duration DT. DT is generally decomposed into the duration due to source effects (DS)Expand

Comparison of 1D linear, equivalent-linear, and nonlinear site response models at six KiK-net validation sites
Abstract Vertical seismometer arrays represent a unique interaction between observed and predicted ground motions, and they are especially helpful for validating and comparing site response models.Expand

An Updated Geospatial Liquefaction Model for Global Application
Abstract We present an updated geospatial approach to estimation of earthquake‐induced liquefaction from globally available geospatial proxies. Our previous iteration of the geospatial liquefactionExpand
