Course Objectives 1) To learn the origin of the Earthquake Zonation Map, the assumptions behind and the relevant issues,
2) To provide students with the steps of generating design spectra for the Design-basis Ground Motion
3) To introduce and make use of common Seismic Hazard Assessment methods, assumptions, equations and literature
4) To make sure the students acquire knowledge to conduct a site-specific Seismic Hazard Assessment and produce design spectrum
Course Description The content of the course will include the Maximum Credible Earthquake and Design Basis Earthquake concepts, Guttenberg-Richter law, earthquake catalogues, available source models, ground motion prediction equations, terms that help in connecting the fault activity to design basis spectrum. Seismic Hazard Assessment (SHA) methods, both semi-deterministic and probabilistic, and supporting examples and exercises will be examined in the course. Details in Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA), treatment of uncertainty in SHA issues will be covered. The course will culminate with the elaboration of the subject on the determination of the Design-basis Ground Motion (DGM) needed for the code-based and performance-based design of engineering structures.
