3 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop This contribution “Simulating Earthquake Scenarios in the European Project LESSLOSS: the case of the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon (MAL)” is a part of Sub-Project 10 of the LESSLOSS Project, “Disaster scenarios predictions and loss modeling for urban areas”; The overall aim of SP 10 is: “to create a methodology, based on state-of-the-art loss modeling software, to provide strong, quantified statements about the benefits and costs of a range of possible mitigation actions, to support decision-making by city and regional authorities for seismic risk mitigation strategies” The SP 10 “Disaster scenarios predictions and loss modeling for urban areas”

4 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop Estimation of ground shaking using Deterministic Seismic Hazard Analysis (DSHA). Earthquake scenario = for a given site, the ground shaking level (in terms of PGA, PGV, SA and time series) is computed with a specific finite-fault method and with given hypothesis regarding the reference earthquake. 1.Finite-fault effects and directivity are important because of the relative nearness of seismic source; 2.The urban level of losses scenario ask for high resolution of ground motion input to match with the complexity of geotechnical characterization, vulnerability data and exposure factors; 3.When applied to critical structures DSHA provides a straightforward framework for evaluating the worst-case ground motions.

7 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop DE-AGGREGATION of PSHA for the Metropolian Area of Lisbon The seismic action scenarios were defined on the basis of the obtained modal values derived from the last recent study (Sousa, 2006) on 3D de- aggregation analyses in M and (X, Y) (magnitude and coordinates of bin source)

8 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop Reference earthquakes for given Return Period using the de-aggregation of the PSHA The reference earthquakes with Return Period of 50 and 500 years have been used to evaluate scenarios as input for loss modeling in the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon The reference earthquakes with Return Period of 200 years have been used to evaluate and compare scenarios with the different methods and to do the treatment of the uncertainty

11 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop Simulating Earthquake Scenarios using Finite-Fault Model The Finite-Fault Model Parameters Finite-fault simulations require information on the fault-plane geometry (length, width, strike and dip), the source parameters (seismic moment, slip distribution, stress drop, nucleation point, rupture velocity, etc.), the crustal properties of the region (geometrical spreading coefficient, quality factor, etc.) and the site- specific soil response. A dataset of digital acceleration records obtained from the Portuguese accelerometer network at hard- rock sites was employed to calibrate specific simulation parameters

13 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop THE NUMERICAL APPROACHES USED IN THE EUROPEAN PROJECT LESSLOSS In the European Project LESSLOSS SP 10 we evaluate shaking scenarios using the following Finite-fault approaches: 1.Deterministic-Stochastic simulation Method, DSM (Pacor et al., 2005) (used for three cities); 2.Non-stationary stochastic Finite fault simulation Method, RSSIM (Carvalho et al., 2004) (used only for MAL). FURTHERMORE to compare and to calibrate the methods we use also: FINSIM (Beresnev and Atkinson, 1998), a stochastic finite-fault method and EXSIM (Motazedian and Atkinson,2005): a stochastic finite-fault method with “the dynamic corner frequency” option.

14 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop DSM : Deterministic Stochastic Method (Pacor et al., 2005) km N P1P1 P2P2 P 1 : directive site P 2 : anti-directive site The methods DSM, FINSIM and RSSIM are all Finite-Fault approaches that are based on a modification of the Point-Source- Stochastic-Method of Boore [2003] The DSM computes two horizontal components of motion and reproduces very well the directive effects

15 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop RSSIM : Non-stationary stochastic finite fault simulation method (Carvalho et al., 2004) The RSSIM method is customized for engineering applications it works inside the LNECLoss system. It is a spectral approach. A new stochastic procedure, after Serra Bilé and Caldeira, 1998 The earthquake scenarios for each parish are defined by the computation of the Power Spectra Density Function (PSDF) of surface acceleration with due consideration of local site effects.

16 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop TREATMENT OF UNCERTAINTY In order to evaluate the variability depending on the uncertainties of input parameters a sensitivity analysis is done varying the following input parameters: 1.Different velocities of rupture (Vr) 2.Different nucleation points : bilateral propagation (NP = 2) and two others as unilateral direction with the nucleation point at the bottom corners (NP =1 and NP = 3) 3.homogeneous slip distribution model for the Lower Tagus Valley Fault (LTVF) M 5.7 with Return Period (RP) 200 years 4.Different different slip distribution model for the Marques Pombal Thrust Fault (MPTF) M 7.6 with Return Period (RP) 200 years LTVF M 5.7

27 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop 1.In this study we simulate the ground motion shaking (at the bedrock and surface levels) for the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon (MAL) with two proposed scenarios: Lower Tagus Valley Fault (LTVF) Mw 4.4 (RP 50 years) and Marques Pombal Thrust Fault (MPTF) Mw 7.9 (RP 500 years); 2.The ground motion shaking have been computed first at the bedrock sites. To include the local site effects, available microzonation studies have been used to characterize the site amplification. In the case of Lisbon, the characterization of local soil effects is taken into account, using the LNECloss system, computing the Power Spectra Density Function (PSDF) at the surface level; 3.A treatment uncertainty was carried out for different methodologies (DSM, RSSIM and FINSIM) and the variability of ground motion was studied. The variability of ground motion was inferred from a set of fault ruptures scenarios incorporating different nucleation points, different ruptures velocities and slip distribution. RESULTS and COMMENTS

28 Lisbon, May 24 th and 25 th 2007, LESSLOSS Dissemination workshop RESULTS and COMMENTS oFollowing the purposes of the SP10 we have worked with existing methods and the GIS-based software as the LNECLoss system (Campos Costa et al., 2002) that comprises several modules to perform seismic risk analyses. The only two used modules concerning this study are the Bedrock Seismic Input and Local Soil Effects evaluation oAn improvement of the LNECloss system could be possible incorporating the new approaches and all knowledge on sensitivity studies gained during the European Project LESSLOSS.
