Strong-Motion Predictions

Turkey Flat Strong-Motion Array Cross-section Schematic
(showing location of accelerometers: R – rock sites, V – valley alluvium sites, D – downhole sites).

"REQUIRED" Strong-Motion Test Predictions (both horizontal components):

•Fourier Amplitude Spectral Ratios:

        1) Xi / R1 given R1 (where Xi means D1, D2, D3, V1, V2, R2)

        2) V1 / D3, D2 / D3 given D3

 •Acceleration Time Histories:

        1) V1, D2, D3 given R1

        2) V1, D2 given D3

 •Pseudovelocity Response Spectra (5% damped) & peak values displacement, velocity, acceleration:

       1) Xi given R1 (where Xi means D1, D2, D3, V1, V2, R2)

       2) V1, D2 given D3

 "OPTIONAL" Strong-Motion  Predictions:

1)  Full set of above predictions using the “standard” geotechnical model.

2)   Acceleration time histories for V2, R2, given R1 for “preferred” geotechnical model.

3)   Acceleration time histories for V2, R2, given R1 for “standard” geotechnical model.

4)   Compute each prediction for vertical component of motion.
