Implements the PGA GMPE of Fukushima and Tanaka (1990) Fukushima, Y. and Tanaka, T. (1990) A New Attenuation Relation for Peak Horizontal Acceleration of Strong Earthquake Ground Motion in Japan. Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, 80(4), 757 - 783
Supported intensity measure component is the average horizontal component openquake.hazardlib.const.IMC.AVERAGE_HORIZONTAL,
Supported intensity measure types are peak ground acceleration
Supported standard deviation types is total.
The GMPE is derived from shallow earthquakes in California and Japan
Required distance measure is rupture distance
Required rupture parameters are magnitude
Required site parameters. The GMPE was developed for an ‘’average’’ site conditions. The authors specify that for rock sites the values should be lowered by 40 % and for soil site they should be raised by 40 %. For greatest consistencty the site condition is neglected currently but a site-dependent GMPE may be implemented inside a subclass.
Implements the Fukushima and Tanaka (1990) model correcting for site class. The authors specify that the ground motions should be raised by 40 % on soft soil sites and reduced by 40 % on rock sites. The specific site classification is not known, so it is assumed that in this context “average” site conditions refer to NEHRP C, rock conditions to NEHRP A and B, and soft soil conditions to NEHRP D and E
Input sites as vs30 although only three classes considered
