Strong Ground Motion Relationship

The Strong Ground Motion (SGM) relationship is used to calculate the Peak Particle Velocity (PPV) generated by a seismic event. You may also hear this referred to as a Ground Motion Prediction Equation (GMPE), but only the maximum velocity is estimated, i.e. the...

What do the Hazard Iso’s mean?

The Iso View in the Hazard Assessment application expresses the seismic hazard in two ways. The current yearly hazard within the chosen grid volume. This is shown in the footer of the 3D view, as the probability of an event exceeding the design magnitude. The spatial...
