  1. Present and Future EffortsTowards physics-based high-frequency earthquake simulations Computational Seismology Laboratory, Quake GroupDepartment of Civil and Environmental EngineeringCarnegie Institute of TechnologyCarnegie Mellon University

  2. 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

  3. Hercules as a SCEC/CME Community Code cvs

  4. Hercules as a SCEC/CME Community Code Submitted proposal to SCEC (funded)

  5. 4-Hz Simulation and Validation of the 2008 Chino Hills Earthquake Performed both qualitative and quantitative comparisons using records from 336 stations Simulation Domain: Material Model: Minimum Vs: Maximum Frequency: Software: Processors: Time: 180 x 135 x 62 km3 CVM-S v4.1 200 m/s 4 Hz Hercules 24,000 31 hrs Taborda, R., and Bielak, J., (2012)Ground-Motion Simulation and Validation of the 2008 Chino Hills, California, EarthquakeBull. Seismol. Soc. Ame., Accepted for Publication.

  6. Comparisons at a Geotechnical Array (Borehole) Synthetics Data Taborda, R., and Bielak, J., (2012)Ground-Motion Simulation and Validation of the 2008 Chino Hills, California, EarthquakeBull. Seismol. Soc. Ame., Accepted for Publication.

  7. 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 Taborda, R., and Bielak, J., (2012)Ground-Motion Simulation and Validation of the 2008 Chino Hills, California, EarthquakeBull.
