These equations were based on data obtained through , and they used a binary classification ("rock" and "soil") for the geologic materials.

An explanation for the different observations of ϕ's dependency on distance and magnitude may be found in the dependence of response spectral amplification on the input motion (e.g. Bora et al., ). Given that resonance effects in site response depend greatly on the site type (e.g. long-period resonance for deep sedimentary basins and high Cited by: of exceedence of 2% in 50 years at T ¼ 2s(Crouse et al. ). Mapped values of T L for the conterminous United States show a large variability, ranging from 4 s (for M d in the – range) up to 16s (M d in the – range). As a final remark, it is worth noting that in all these codes, T D (or T L) does not depend on site conditions.

Each earthquake has a unique amount of energy, but magnitude values given by different seismological observatories for an event.

$\endgroup$ – hotpaw2 Mar 12 '13 at Two different types of psychophysical scales can be used when the experimenter designs the response region of magnitude estimation.

One is a unipolar scale and the other is a bipolar scale. Each scale has unique properties with regard to magnitude by: The method of magnitude estimation is used in psychophysical studies to obtain numerical values for the intensity of perception of environmental stresses (e.g., noise and vibration).

The exponent in a power function relating the subjective magnitude of a stimulus (e.g., the degree of discomfort) to the physical magnitude of the stimulus shows Cited by: These equations use scaling in terms of moment magnitude M W, and describe the local site conditions in terms of V 30, the shear wave velocity in the top 30 m of soil.

Magnitude Estimation is a psychophysical method in which participants judge and assign numerical estimates to the perceived strength of a stimulus. This technique was developed by S. Stevens in the s (e.g., Stevens, ).

Magnitude estimation usually works in the following way. If you need a more accurate estimation than this algorithm provides, you can use some variation of it. For example, varying values of Alpha and Beta can be taken from a small lookup table, driven by the relative size of min and max values.

Another possibility is to use this estimate as the “seed” of an iterative magnitude estimator. “Correlation of response spectral values in Japanese ground motions.” Earthquakes and Structures, 2(4), Ground motion models predict the mean and standard deviation of the logarithm of spectral acceleration, as a function of predictor variables such as earthquake magnitude, distance and site condition.

Predictive equations based on the stochastic approach are developed for earthquake ground motions from Garhwal Himalayan earthquakes of ≤M w ≤ at a distance of 10≤R≤ km. The predicted ground motion parameters are response spectral values at frequencies from to 20 Hz, and peak ground acceleration (PGA).Cited by: 4.

This is in direct contrast with analysis of the average spectral magnitude.

source, path, and site have been commonly represented in a simplified manner by earthquake magnitude, source-to-site distance, and local subsurface conditions. The important influences of these factors on ground motion are summarized below.

Kay.Stevens's power law is an empirical relationship in psychophysics between an increased intensity or strength in a physical stimulus and the perceived magnitude increase in the sensation created by the stimulus.

It is often considered to supersede the Weber–Fechner law, which is based on a logarithmic relationship between stimulus and sensation, because the power law describes a wider range. To estimate the amplitude field at short epicentral distance the spectral model ω2 [7] is used.

The maximum spectral velocity amplitudes and their respective periods are investigated. Theoretical amplitude curves are obtained under the assumption that the monochromatic spectral amplitudes attenuate proportionally to their frequency. The amplitude curves for different magnitudes Cited by: 2.
