Description:

Earthquake catalogues. GutenbergRichter relation, estimation of the catalogue completeness. Functions of attenuation of intensity, PGA, PGV, PGD. Dynamic factor of amplification (DAF), amplification spectra for vertically incident SHwaves. Seismic hazard and risk.
LEARNING OUTCOMES:
The course on Engineering seismology enable students to:
 Describe the typical contents of earthquake catalogues.
 Define and discuss the GutenbergRichter relation, and to estimate its parameters, given an earthquake catalogue.
 To estimate the catalogue completeness with respect to the smallest magnitude and/or the time interval.
 Define properties of the Poissonian process.
 Describe main factors influencing recorded strong motion at some location.
 Compute amplification spectra for given geotechnical models of soil layers.
 Differentiate between properties of soil based on the corresponding amplification spectra.
 Differentiate between the deterministic and probabilistic approach to hazard determination.
 Argue for the properties of seismic hazard as described by a given hazard map.
