Abstract

The spatial variation of seismic waves has an important effect on the seismic response of structures of extended length. Based on data collected from the SMART-1 array, the spatial variation of seismic waves can be examined. The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of the spatial variation of seismic waves on a spatially distributed system. With the consideration of the soil amplification ratio between two sites and spatial variation of seismic waves, a ground deformation spectrum is developed from stochastic point of view. This spectrum can provide information useful in predicting maximum ground deformation. The seismic response of a spatially distributed system, such as the effects of variation in soil stiffness on the dynamic response of pipelines are discussed.

Stochastic Response of Lifeline to Spatial Variation of Seismic Waves

St. Louis, Missouri

The spatial variation of seismic waves has an important effect on the seismic response of structures of extended length. Based on data collected from the SMART-1 array, the spatial variation of seismic waves can be examined. The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of the spatial variation of seismic waves on a spatially distributed system. With the consideration of the soil amplification ratio between two sites and spatial variation of seismic waves, a ground deformation spectrum is developed from stochastic point of view. This spectrum can provide information useful in predicting maximum ground deformation. The seismic response of a spatially distributed system, such as the effects of variation in soil stiffness on the dynamic response of pipelines are discussed.
