CE 728 Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Department of Civil Engineering Middle East Technical University, Ankara,Turkey Assoc. Prof. Dr. K. Önder Çetin Project Assignment You have been hired by General Directorate of Disaster Management Affairs for the seismic design analysis of selected sites. Each three-person group will be assigned one of three sites: 1, 2 or 3. You are in Group …., with Site …. The client has requested that you perform a seismic site response study for a Magnitude 6.5 earthquake event on the nearby North Anatolian Fault, which is located 6 km, 10 km, 12 km away from Sites 1, 2 and 3 respectively (you have developed the design response spectra for these sites in Assignment 2). Site information is attached. The client would like you to provide the design acceleration response spectrum ( λ =3, 5 and 7 %) for surface motions at the site due to North Anatolian Fault event. However before you begin these studies, your group should do two things : First, you should run SHAKE91 for a generic 30 m deep soil deposit with average dynamic soil properties (say V s = 170 to 350 m/sec, and PI = 15) with provided Adapazari rock motion scaled to 0.25 g, and vary the properties to get a “feel” for the sensitivity of
