Constants

Module openquake.hazardlib.const defines various constants.

class openquake.hazardlib.const.ConstantContainer[source]

Class that doesn’t support instantiation.

AssertionError: do not create objects ConstantContainer, use class properties instead
class openquake.hazardlib.const.IMC[source]

The intensity measure component is the component of interest of ground shaking for an intensity measure.

AVERAGE_HORIZONTAL = 'Average horizontal'

Usually defined as the geometric average of the maximum of the two horizontal components (which may not occur at the same time).

GMRotD100 = 'Average Horizontal (GMRotD100)'

The geometric mean of the records rotated into the most adverse direction for the structure.

GMRotI50 = 'Average Horizontal (GMRotI50)'

An orientation-independent alternative to AVERAGE_HORIZONTAL. Defined at Boore et al. (2006, Bull. Seism. Soc. Am. 96, 1502-1511) and is used for all the NGA GMPEs.

GREATER_OF_TWO_HORIZONTAL = 'Greater of two horizontal'

The largest value obtained from two perpendicular horizontal components.

HORIZONTAL = 'Horizontal'

The horizontal component.

MEDIAN_HORIZONTAL = 'Median horizontal'

The median horizontal component.

RANDOM_HORIZONTAL = 'Random horizontal'

A randomly chosen horizontal component.

RotD50 = 'Average Horizontal (RotD50)'

An orientation-independent alternative to AVERAGE_HORIZONTAL. Defined at Boore et al. (2006, Bull. Seism. Soc. Am. 96, 1502-1511) and is used for all the NGA GMPEs.

VERTICAL = 'Vertical'

The vertical component.

class openquake.hazardlib.const.StdDev[source]

GSIM standard deviation represents ground shaking variability at a site.

INTER_EVENT = 'Inter event'

Standard deviation representing ground shaking variability within different events.

INTRA_EVENT = 'Intra event'

Standard deviation representing ground shaking variability within a single event.

TOTAL = 'Total'

Total standard deviation, defined as the square root of the sum of inter- and intra-event squared standard deviations, represents the total ground shaking variability, and is the only one that is used for calculating a probability of intensity exceedance (see openquake.hazardlib.gsim.base.GroundShakingIntensityModel.get_poes()).

class openquake.hazardlib.const.TRT[source]

Container for constants that define some of the common Tectonic Region Types.
