Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis Tutorial
Entry ID: PSHA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The goal of probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) is to quantify the
rate (or probability) of exceeding various ground-motion levels at a site (or a
map of sites) given all possible earthquakes. The numerical/analytical approach
to PSHA was first formalized by Cornell (1968). The most comprehensive
treatment to date is the SSHAC (1997) report, which covers many important
procedural issues ... View entire text
