Validation of Simulated Ground Motions based on Demands Imposed on Complex Sturctural Systems
Motivation Ground motion simulations offer the potential to significantly improve seismic hazard characterization, however their continued improvement requires extensive validation. While validation is often undertaken based on ground motion intensity measures (spectral accelerations, duration, etc.), it is also critical to examine the consistency of simulated ground motions when compared in terms of the seismic demands imposed on complex structural and geotechnical systems.
