Over the past four or five decades many advances have been made in earthquake ground-motion prediction and a variety of procedures have been proposed. Some of these procedures are based on explicit physical models of the earthquake source, travel-path and recording site while others lack a strong physical basis and seek only to replicate observations. In addition, there are a number of hybrid methods that seek to combine benefits of different approaches. The various techniques proposed have… 

Recent and future developments in earthquake ground motion estimation

Fifty years of ground-motion models

It has now been fifty years since the first model for the prediction of earthquake ground motions accounting for both magnitude and distance dependence was derived directly from strong-motion data

Emergence of the semi-empirical technique of strong ground motion simulation: A review

High frequency ground motion simulation techniques are powerful tools for designing earthquake resistant structures in seismically active regimes. Simulation techniques also provide the synthetic

STUDY OF THE SPATIAL CORRELATION OF EARTHQUAKE GROUND MOTION BY MEANS OF PHYSICS-BASED NUMERICAL SCENARIOS

Spatial correlation of the ground motion plays a key role in all those applications requiring the definition of the joint occurrence of ground motion intensities at several locations during the same

SYNTHETIC EARTHQUAKE GROUND MOTIONS FOR SPECIFIED SEISMIC DESIGN SCENARIO

A method for generating a suite of synthetic ground motion time-histories for a specified seismic design scenario is presented. Synthetic time-histories are modeled by a stochastic process developed

Simulated ground motions for seismic risk assessment of structures

The recent advances in computational efficiency and the scarcity/absence of recorded ground motions for specific seismicity scenarios have led to an increasing interest in the use of ground motion

Strategy for Selecting Input Ground Motion for Structural Seismic Demand Analysis

TLDR
This thesis demonstrates that a single ground motion set is not sufficient to obtain an assuring level of the EDPs regardless of the GMSM methods, which is due to the record and set variability.

Selection and scaling of ground motions for nonlinear response history analysis of buildings in performance-based earthquake engineering

Author(s): Kwong, Neal Simon | Advisor(s): Chopra, Anil K. | Abstract: This dissertation investigates the issue of selecting and scaling ground motions as inputexcitations for response history

Evaluation of seismic hazard for the assessment of historical elements at risk: description of input and selection of intensity measures

The assessment of historical elements at risk from earthquake loading presents a number of differences from the seismic evaluation of modern structures, for design or retrofitting purposes, which is

Simulation of synthetic ground motions for specified earthquake and site characteristics

A method for generating a suite of synthetic ground motion time‐histories for specified earthquake and site characteristics defining a design scenario is presented. The method employs a parameterized

This paper is a comprehensive review of the current procedures used for specifying earthquake ground motion for many applications in the United States. These applications include: siting and design

Simulation of Ground Motion Using the Stochastic Method

TLDR
One of the essential characteristics of the method is that it distills what is known about the various factors affecting ground motions into simple functional forms that can be incorporated into practical predictions of ground motion.

Stability of earthquake ground motion synthesized by using different small-event records as empirical Green's functions

The semi-empirical method, in which small-event records are used as Green's functions to synthesize strong ground motions from a large earthquake, has become one of the most practical methods for

Strong motion prediction using mathematical modeling techniques

abstract The Parkfield, California, earthquake of 1966 produced the first recording of ground motion in the immediate vicinity of an earthquake fault. The simplicity of displacement pulse observed at

Empirical ground motion prediction

New methods of site-specific ground motion prediction in the time and frequency domains are presented. A large earthquake is simulated as a composite (linear combination) of observed small

Ground-motion relations are developed for California using a stochastic simulation method that exploits the equivalence between finite-fault models and a two-corner point-source model of the

A study of the strong ground motion of the Borrego Mountain, California, earthquake

Several synthetic models are constructed to fit the first 40 sec of the transversely polarized displacement, as recorded at El Centro, of the April 9, 1968 Borrego Mountain earthquake. The modeling
