Abstract

The recorded response of the Marina District of the City of San Francisco to an aftershock of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake is simulated using a two-dimensional model of the sedimentary deposits. Even though the response of the Marina is truly three-dimensional, the two-dimensional model successfully captures some important aspects of the response and consequently may be useful for predicting strong ground motion in the Marina District for engineering applications.

Seismic Response of a Linear, 2-D Model of the Marina District

St. Louis, Missouri

The recorded response of the Marina District of the City of San Francisco to an aftershock of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake is simulated using a two-dimensional model of the sedimentary deposits. Even though the response of the Marina is truly three-dimensional, the two-dimensional model successfully captures some important aspects of the response and consequently may be useful for predicting strong ground motion in the Marina District for engineering applications.
