MS15 - Recent advances in input motion modelling for the design of earthquake-resistant systems


The knowledge of ground motion attributable to earthquakes is essential for the design of earthquake-resistant structures, and for the evaluation of the seismic vulnerability of existing ones. Among all possible sources of uncertainty stemming from the structural and soil material properties, the selection of earthquake-induced ground motions has the highest effect on the variability observed in the response history analysis of earthquake-resistant systems.
This Minisymposium aims at discussing new developments and open research issues addressing:
  • Seismic hazard analysis;
  • Ground motion simulation and scaling techniques;
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning models to solve earthquake engineering problems.
