Dynamic Properties of Soil Shear wave velocity Modulus Reduction and Damping Characteristics of Structures

Earthquake ground motion is the outcome of a complicated physical system that consists of three processes: Earthquake source process: Seismic waves are generated as part of the strain energy released from the rupture of an active geologic fault Wave propagation (path): Seismic waves then propagate through the earths crust Shallow soil response : Seismic waves approach the surface of the earth, where they undergo further modifications while propagating through shallow soils.

Physical processes

Earthquake damage is influenced by ground motion: ! ! ! Amplitude Frequency content Duration

What causes damage during earthquakes? Type of soil (sand, clay, silt, or a mixture?) Properties of soil (loose, dense, soft, stiff ..?) Whether Saturated or not (ground water table)? Characteristics of ground motion.

Long-period motions Deterministic One can reasonably predict their waveforms and spectral contents using seismological models that do not contain any stochastic element in either the input or the theoretical formulation. Short Period (High-frequency) waveforms Relatively difficult to simulate using a deterministic approach Source radiation and wave propagation become increasingly incoherent at short periods (due to the existence of small-scale heterogeneities in the earthquake source process and crustal properties). Behave stochastically. The period of transition from deterministic to stochastic behavior is uncertain, but is often taken as about T =!1s.

Types of Sources

For near source regions, or places near the epicenter, the high frequency content is most damaging. The fault slip process is finite in both time and space. When a site is within a few fault lengths of the source of a largemagnitude earthquake, a finite source is essential to the simulation of the near-fault effects. At distances far from the fault, a finite source can be reasonably simplified to a point source in space for the purpose of simulating ground motions. Because a procedure using a point source model is computationally less involved than one using a finite source model, considerable computational savings can be achieved when the point source model is deemed appropriate.

Central Seismic Gap (750 km long) Delhi (Min. distance 200 km)

The Regional Map of Delhi and surrounding areas with epicenters of the earthquakes which occurred in the region

During the last few large earthquakes, a 750-km long segment is unbroken that spans from eastern edge of 1905 rupture zone and western edge of 1934 earthquake. This segment is called the central seismic gap and it continues to be under high strain. Large earthquakes have occurred in 1803 and 1833 in this seismic gap but the magnitude was less than 8 and hence they were not gap filling earthquakes. Khattri (1999) has estimated the probability of occurrence of a great 8.5 magnitude earthquake in the gap in next 100 years to be 0.59.

One model is an "2 source model that does not take into account the finiteness of the source and is in good agreement for distances greater than twice the dimensions of the fault source. It has the advantage that it is controlled by the familiar stress parameter !". The other model is a finite source model proposed by Bersenev and Atkinson that considers the Finite fault to be a combination of subfaults. It is much more reliable for near source ground motion estimation. The high frequency radiation is controlled by the strength factor, sfact, a quantity that is physically related to maximum slip rate on the fault. !" is estimated by fitting the synthetic data with the observed Amax and Vmax in the two earthquakes and then sfact is obtained by matching the curves predicted by both models in far field upto distances of 500 km.

The Fourier amplitude spectrum of a seismic signal is represented as

Generate band limited random white Gaussian noise with zero expected mean and variance of the noise equal to its total bandwidth. Apply a normalized time window to it such that the integral of its square is unity. The generated noise has unit spectral amplitude. Multiply the spectrum of windowed time series with the specified spectrum. Transform back to time domain.

The fault plane is discretized into a certain number of equal rectangular elements (sub-faults) with dimensions #l(#w. According to Beresnev and Atkinson (1999), the sub-fault size increases linearly with the moment magnitude Mw of the simulated earthquake.

Shear waves dominate at R < 100 km and Surface waves at R >= 100 km. Q = 508 * f ^ (0.48) is valid for both the regions. The effective duration is given by fc^(-1) + 0.05*R, where fc is the corner frequency and R is the hypocentral distance. The acceleration spectra are sharply cut off after 15 Hz.

pga on the top of free field amplified up to 6 times for the acceleration histories used as bed rock motion. This factor came down to 3 when used as outcrop motion. However, this can not be generalized for bedrock pga > 0.05 g Non-linear behavior was clearly observed when the pga in the bed-rock is 0.20 g Plasticity index of the soil did influence the computed response. For the same profile, as PI increased, the computed pga increased

Simplified approach over predicts the CSR value as compared to wave propagation analysis As the magnitude of the earthquake increased, depth of liquefaction increased for shallow sites (up to 20 m deep).
