Implements GMPE developed by R.R Youngs, S-J, Chiou, W.J. Silva, J.R. Humphrey and published as “Strong Ground Motion Attenuation Relationships for Subduction Zone Earthquakes” (Seismological Research Letters Volume 68, No. 1, pages 58-73, 1997). This class implements the equations for ‘Subduction Interface’ (that’s why the class name ends with ‘SInter’). Mean value for SA at 4 s on rock (not originally supported) is obtained from mean value at 3 s divided by a factor equal to 0.399 (scaling factor computed in the context of the SHARE project obtained as average ratio between median values at 4 and 3 seconds as predicted by SHARE subduction GMPEs).

Implement modification to YoungsEtAl1997SSlab as defined by GSC (Geological Survey of Canada) for the 2010 Western Canada Model. Includes adjustement for firm ground. The model is associated to the ‘Best’ case, that is mean value unaffected.
See superclass method for spec of input and result values.
Implement modification to YoungsEtAl1997SSlab as defined by GSC (Geological Survey of Canada) for the 2010 Western Canada Model. Includes adjustement for firm ground. The model is associated to the ‘Upper Limit’ case, that is mean value plus 0.7 natural logarithm.
See superclass method for spec of input and result values.
