Blind predictions of Turkey Flat ground motions are carried out using a series of nonlinear ground response analysis codes. The prediction exercise is structured in two phases so as to formally consider several sources of uncertainty. The first phase involves analysis of the site response considering various sources of material variability and model variability. Specifically, these analyses utilized five different nonlinear analysis codes, each exercised with a suite of small strain shear wave… Expand
