Verification of Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis Computer Programs
Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) has become a fundamental tool is assessing seismic hazards and for estimating seismic design and seismic safety evaluation of ground motions. It is used on a site-specific basis for important and critical facilities and on a national scale for building codes. This report describes a project to test and verify the numerical approaches and software used in PSHA.
