INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Analysis description The performance of different classification schemes has been tested through the evaluation of GMPEs The GM is represented by the acceleration response spectra ordinates (5% damping) The response variables are: magnitude, distance, style of faulting and soil classes A GMPE is derived for each classification The GMPE performance has been evaluated in terms of standard deviation of the GMPEs and of the errors associated to the classes of each scheme

INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Response variable: SA (5%, 0.04T 4sec) Geomean of H components Functional form (e.g. Akkar & Bommer, 2007): Functional form for regression M ref = 5.6, R ref = 1km

4
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Regression approach Random effect model (e.g. Brillinger & Preisler, 1985) : Inter-event ( i ) Inter-station ( k ) Inter-event error = error due to an earthquake recorded by many stations Inter-station error = error due to a station which recorded several events

5
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Mean prediction Earthquake i recorded at station k Inter-event distribution of error : it assumes a value for each earthquake and describes the correlation among the errors for different recordings of the same earthquake. It is a normal distribution with standard deviation equal to Error distributions Observation Intra-event distribution of error : it assumes a value for each recording. It is a normal distribution with standard deviation equal to. The error distributions and are assumed to be independent. RANDOM EFFECT MODEL inter/intra - event

6
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Mean prediction Earthquake i recorded at station k Error distributions Observation The residuals are decomposed as the sum of the inter- and intra- event error distributions Since the distributions are independent, the total variance is the sum of the two variances: RANDOM EFFECT MODEL inter/intra - event

16
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Classification schemes: Sabetta & Pugliese (1987) Based on geological and geotechnical information and the thickness H of the soil layer, three categories: Rock sites Stiff, shallow alluvium (H =< 20 m) Deep alluvium (H > 20 m) Stiff sites have average shear-wave velocity greater than 800 m/s alluvium sites have a shear-wave velocity between 400 and 800 m/s

INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Degree of membership to a class Assuming that the variables of the points in a cluster are normally distributed, the membership to a soil class can be evaluated as probability density For a normal distribution of one variable, the probability density function is: is the variable mean The assigned class is the one with the highest probability is the standard deviation

25
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Soil coefficients

26
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Preliminary considerations SP96 has 2 soil classes, therefore the soil coefficients tend to smooth the behaviour of peculiar sites. The classification is efficient, as the curves are clearly separated. EC8 has 4 soil classes, 2 classes represent sites with well defined response (classes D and E), while classes B and C tend to be very similar at low periods ROV has 6 soil classes, 2 have well defined response (classes 1 and 4), classes 2 and 3 have intermediate response, but they are too similar ( s and 0.4–0.6 s), coefficients of classes 6 and 7 also tend to be very similar (problem in class attribution?) S4-MI has 3 soil classes, each one with a well defined response.

29
INGV-DPC S4 riunione Siena Aprile 2010 Preliminary considerations T (0.04-1s): SP96 EC8 and ROV have similar total standard deviations, S4-MI has lowest T>1s: EC8 is the classification with the lowest standard deviation, and it depends on the fact that 2 classes amplify the GM, class D (but represented only by 3 stations…..) and C
