Workshop on the Use of SCEC Seismogram Simulations for Building Response Analysis

Conveners: Sanaz Rezaeian and Nicolas Luco
Dates: February 16, 2018 (10:00 - 16:30)
Location: SCEC Boardroom, USC, Los Angeles

SUMMARY: Computer simulations of earthquake ground motion seismograms (e.g., time series of ground acceleration) are among the various products of the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) and other earthquake scientists. For earthquake engineering and other applications, such seismogram simulations can be used to complement data recorded in past earthquakes. Convened by a subgroup of the SCEC Ground Motion Simulation Validation (GMSV) Technical Activity Group (TAG), this workshop will connect scientists who perform seismogram simulations with engineers who might use them. The discussion will be focused mostly on the use of SCEC Broadband Platform seismogram simulations for building response analysis by structural engineers.
