Atkinson 2015

class openquake.hazardlib.gsim.atkinson_2015.Atkinson2015[source]

Implements the Induced Seismicity GMPE of Atkinson (2015) Atkinson, G. A. (2015) Ground-Motion Prediction Equation for Small-to- Moderate Events at Short Hypocentral Distances, with Application to Induced-Seismicity Hazards. Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. 105(2).


Supported intensity measure component is the larger of two components

DEFINED_FOR_INTENSITY_MEASURE_TYPES = set([<class 'openquake.hazardlib.imt.PGV'>, <class 'openquake.hazardlib.imt.SA'>, <class 'openquake.hazardlib.imt.PGA'>])

Supported intensity measure types are peak ground acceleration

DEFINED_FOR_STANDARD_DEVIATION_TYPES = set(['Total', 'Inter event', 'Intra event'])

Supported standard deviation types is total.


The GMPE is derived from induced earthquakes

REQUIRES_DISTANCES = set(['rhypo'])

Required distance measure is hypocentral distance


Required rupture parameters are magnitude


No required site parameters, the GMPE is derived for B/C site amplification factors

get_mean_and_stddevs(sites, rup, dists, imt, stddev_types)[source]

See superclass method for spec of input and result values.

non_verified = True

GMPE not tested against independent implementation so raise not verified warning
