CEE 431 Problem Set 6 Winter 2006 (Due: Wednesday, March 1, 5:00 pm) Consider the 200-km long, strike-slip fault shown below. The distance from the site to the nearest point on the fault is 30 km. In solving this problem, make the following assumptions: The maximum earthquake magnitude to consider can be estimated assuming that the full length of the fault ruptures during and earthquake. Use the strike-slip equation from Table 4-1 Earthquakes with magnitudes below 4.0 can be ignored. The seismicity of the site is described by log λ m = 4.1-0.7M Use the Cambell (1981) attenuation relationship. Divide the fault length into 8 seqments of equal length Divide the magnitudes into 8 ranges of equal change in magnitude Problem 1. Compute the probability that the earthquake will be located within each segment, the

Compare these approximate values with the exact solution, given by the integral of Eq. 4.4. The closed form of this integral is given in the solution Problem Set 5. . Problem 2 . Compute and plot the likelihood of each of the 8 ranges of earthquake magnitude. Problem 3 . Compute the annual rate of exceedance of a PHA of 0.15g at the site. Problem 4. What is likelihood that this level of acceleration will be exceeded at least once during the next 50 years? (YOU ARE FREE TO WORK IN GROUPS OF TWO ON THIS ASSIGNMENT) 200 km Site 30 km...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
