Abstract

The appropriate estimation of ground strains Induced during earthquake is indispensable for the seismic design of buried lifeline facilities such as pipeline systems. The ground strains induced during earthquakes are calculated with use of the dense instrument array data observed during past 78 earthquakes for the surface ground at the Public Works Research Institute (PWRl) ln Tsukuba Science City in Japan. Based on the multiple regression analysis for the calculated ground strains, the empirical formulae of attenuation of maximum ground strains for such the ground condition as the PWRI campus are proposed ln terms of earthquake magnitude and epicentral distance, and the attenuation characteristics of ground strains are investigated.

Attenuation Characteristics of Ground Strains Induced During Earthquake

St. Louis, Missouri

The appropriate estimation of ground strains Induced during earthquake is indispensable for the seismic design of buried lifeline facilities such as pipeline systems. The ground strains induced during earthquakes are calculated with use of the dense instrument array data observed during past 78 earthquakes for the surface ground at the Public Works Research Institute (PWRl) ln Tsukuba Science City in Japan. Based on the multiple regression analysis for the calculated ground strains, the empirical formulae of attenuation of maximum ground strains for such the ground condition as the PWRI campus are proposed ln terms of earthquake magnitude and epicentral distance, and the attenuation characteristics of ground strains are investigated.
