USGS Web Tools for Site-Specific Ground Motion Hazard Analysis

You will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of how USGS web tools can be used to perform site-specific ground motion hazard analysis.

The new 2019 California Building Code adopts the ASCE/SEI 7-16 Standard (“Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures”) which requires site-specific ground motion analysis for many more structures than prior editions. For example, now site-specific analysis shall be performed for structures on Site Class D and E sites with S1 greater than or equal to 0.2g, with some exceptions. The webinar will also provide an opportunity for feedback on the USGS web tools from earthquake engineering users.

The webinar will include an introduction from Jorge Meneses (M.EERI,2006), RMA Group, Inc., Nicolas Luco, USGS, will demonstrate the USGS web tools. Following the demonstration, Nicolas Luco and Peter Powers (M.EERI,2018), also of USGS, will be available to answer questions from participants.
