Consistency of Seismicity and Ground Motion Modelling with the Canterbury Earthquakes
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
This paper examines the consistency of seismicity and ground motion models, used for seismic hazard analysis in New Zealand, with the observations in the Canterbury earthquakes. An overview is first given of seismicity and ...
Insights into the Effect of Source Uncertainties on Ground Motion Simulation of the 2010 Mw7.1 Darfield Earthquake
A complete understanding of ground motion uncertainty is fundamental for physics based seismic hazard analysis. This poster focuses on the quantification of the effect of the earthquake source uncertainties (fault geometry, ...
Systematic ground motion observations in the Canterbury earthquakes and region-specific non-ergodic empirical ground motion modeling
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2015)
This paper presents an examination of ground motion observations from 20 near-source strong motion stations during the most significant 10 events in the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake to examine region-specific systematic ...
High-density shallow shear wave velocity characterisation of the urban Christchurch, New Zealand region
(University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, 2015)
This report summarizes the development of a region-wide surficial soil shear wave velocity (Vs ) model based on the unique combination of a large high-spatial-density database of cone penetration test (CPT) logs in the ...
Spatial variability in surficial Christchurch soils via 5 m shear wave velocity Vs5
This paper provides a summary of the development of a shear wave velocity (Vs) model for the greater urban area of Christchurch, New Zealand. The model is based on the application of the recently developed Christchurch-specific ...
Cybershake NZ v17.9: New Zealand simulation-based probabilistic seismic hazard analysis
This paper presents the computational workflow and preliminary results of probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) in New Zealand based on physics-based ground motion simulations (‘Cybershake NZ’). In the current ...
