Simulation of strong ground motion

Tran Thi My Thanh

Tóm tắt


The empirical Green’s function method, developed by Irikura, was applied to synthesize strong ground motion all over the world. Using this method seismologists can explain the nature of the physical phenomena, trying to determine the parameters that describe them and the processes that regulate them. In this study we estimate the strong ground motion for the major aftershock of the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake (September 25, Ml = 6.8) by using a smaller aftershock (Sep. 20, Ml = 5.1) as an empirical Green’s function.
