Design ground motions are generally developed using spectral matching. Embankment deformations, however, often tend to correlate better with energy or duration rather than spectral amplitude, suggesting Arias Intensity could be used as a target parameter along with spectral matching. Embankment analyses often depend on site-specific considerations such as topography and liquefaction making site response modeling necessary. The variation of Arias Intensity with depth is needed to understand… CONTINUE READING
