  • Abstract:
    Shortly after the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, Caltrans geotechnical engineers charged with developing site-specific

    response spectra for high priority California bridges initiated a research project aimed at broadening their perspective

    from simple geotechnical site response analyses to a more comprehensive seismological approach. The project was

    centered on a series of seminars on seismological theory and analyses using a pair of stochastic numerical ground

    motion models that allowed uniform treatment of uncertainties in recognized earthquake source, path, and site effects.

    The project was not intended to produce a “report” per se, but rather, was meant to strengthen the knowledge and

    perspective of practicing engineers. Nevertheless, hard copy of seminar notes and a portion of the analyses have now

    been recovered, scanned and compiled into this volume for their archival and educational value.

    Seven sets of seminar notes and two application examples are presented. Two seminars provide an overview of sitespecific

    specification of ground motion from a seismological perspective. Another seminar provides background on

    seismological instrumentation and processing of strong-motion recordings. A pair of seminars addresses empirical

    attenuation models and outlines the variety of numerical ground motion modeling approaches. The final pair of seminars

    systematically explore source, path and site effects on ground motion and various strategies employed to capture these

    effects for purposes of prediction. The two application examples use the stochastic model to explore the impacts and

    uncertainties of geotechnical site effects within the context of the broader seismological problem.
