Project Abstract
Intellectual Merit Within the science objectives of SCEC, the proposed research contributes to the representation of high frequency components for broadband ground motion simulations, the incorporation of nonlinear soil models in ground motion predictions, and the development of physics-based predictive models for engineering applications.
Broader Impacts At the interface of engineering and
seismology, our work includes contributions to the development of “physics-based” earthquake forecast models.
The realistic simulation of future earthquake scenaria can be only achieved by combining source,
path, and site-response models. The proposed research integrates the reduced uncertainty achieved
through seismic monitoring with the factors that contribute to the improvement of risk assessment
and mitigation strategies, and develops a tool that allows integration of nonlinear response analyses in ground motion simulations thus providing engineers and scientists with tools that can be adopted in practice.
