Module III and IV (group 1)

(English session) Probabilistic seismic hazard and risk

  • Starts 27 Sep
  • Online Session

Service Description

These modules present the basic concepts of probabilistic seismic hazard and risk assessment. MODULE III: Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PSHA is the principal methodology for assessing the potential hazard posed by earthquakes. The hazard maps generated with this calculator are widely used in national seismic codes for hazard zonation and structural design provisions. MODULE IV: Event-Based Probabilistic Seismic Hazard and Risk Analysis ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This type of analysis uses a PSHA model to generate stochastic event sets (SES) that represent the seismicity of a region in a given time span. Losses and statistics for individual assets and portfolio of assets can be estimated, such as average annual loss (AAL) statistics and maps, event loss tables, loss exceedance curves (EC, or maximum probable losses, PML), and loss maps. These risk metrics are important in the medium and long term risk planning, and in the development of mechanisms for risk transfer.
