Steps Towards High-F Project

  • Release Hercules (Lt) as a SCEC community code

  • Continue with Chino Hills 4-Hz simulations using different velocity models

  • Continue with 2-to-5 Hz simulations of Northridge (including nonlinear soil)

  • Advance in a new implementation to include surface topography

4-Hz Simulation and Validation of the 2008 Chino Hills Earthquake

0.1 – 4 Hz

0.25 – 0.5 Hz

0.1 – 0.25 Hz

Goodness-of-Fit Scores by Frequency Bands 

Concluded that we havethe capability to producerealistic earthquake simulations at frequencies higher than 1 Hz, but that we will need to make improvements in different areas (e.g., source, velocity, and attenuation models) to make synthetic results compatible with strong motion records.

0.5 – 1.0 Hz

1.0 – 2.0 Hz

2.0 – 4.0 Hz
