Attenuation of peak ground acceleration, velocity and displacement based on multiple regression analysis of Japanese strong motion records



Attenuation of peak ground acceleration, velocity and displacement based on multiple regression analysis of Japanese strong motion records



Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics 14(2): 199-215



This paper presents the result of multiple regression analysis of 197 sets of two orthogonal horizontal strong motion acceleration records. They were obtained at 67 free field sites in Japan from 90 earthquakes with focal depth less than 60 km. Because sensitivity of the Japanese SMAC accelerograph is appreciably low at the high frequency range, instrument correction was performed on the original data. The records were classified into three groups due to subsoil condition. With the use of multiple regression analysis, empirical formulae of attenuation of the maximum peak ground acceleration, velocity and displacement were proposed for three subsoil conditions.--Modified journal abstract.
