Title Nonlinear Horizontal Site Response for the NGA-West2 Project.
Publication Date May 2013
Media Count 97p
Personal Author N. A. Abrahamson R. Kamai W. J. Silva
Abstract The nonlinear soil amplification models developed by Walling et al. (2008) are revisited for two main reasons: (a) the simulation database on which the models were developed has been updated and extended, with additional magnitudes and soil profiles, and (b) two alternatives for the input shaking parameter are explored the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) and the spectral acceleration for each period, (Sa(T)). The benefits and limitations of each alternative are discussed.
