Abstract

The magnitude, duration and frequency content of ground motions from the Northridge Earthquake are analyzed and compared to predictive relationships typically used in engineering design and to the 1994 Uniform Building Code. The effect of geologic conditions on localized damage patterns is shown to be important for this earthquake, even though many of the sites within the affected region are stiff soil sites classified as UBC sites S1 or S2.

Ground Motions from the Northridge Earthquake

St. Louis, Missouri

The magnitude, duration and frequency content of ground motions from the Northridge Earthquake are analyzed and compared to predictive relationships typically used in engineering design and to the 1994 Uniform Building Code. The effect of geologic conditions on localized damage patterns is shown to be important for this earthquake, even though many of the sites within the affected region are stiff soil sites classified as UBC sites S1 or S2.
