Quantifying Uncertainty in Earthquake Site Response Models Using the KiK-net Database.

Kaklamanos, James.

Abstract: The purpose of this dissertation is to improve our understanding of uncertainty in earthquake site response models, using data from the Kiban-Kyoshin network (KiK-net) of vertical seismometer arrays in Japan. Site response models, which are used to estimate the ground motion at the surface of a site (as a function of the soil profile and the input ground motion), are associated with larg... read more
