iter_ruptures
()[source]¶ See
openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource.iter_ruptures()
for description of parameters and return value.Area sources are treated as a collection of point sources (see
openquake.hazardlib.source.point
) with uniform parameters. Ruptures of area source are just a union of ruptures of those point sources. The actual positions of the implied point sources form a uniformly spaced mesh on the polygon. Polygon’s method :meth: ~openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.discretize is used for creating a mesh of points on the source’s area. Constructor’s parameterarea_discretization
is used as polygon’s discretization spacing (not to be confused with rupture surface’s mesh spacing which is as well provided to the constructor).The ruptures’ occurrence rates are rescaled with respect to number of points the polygon discretizes to.

BaseSeismicSource
(source_id, name, tectonic_region_type)[source]¶ Bases:
object
Base class representing a seismic source, that is a structure generating earthquake ruptures.
Parameters:  source_id – Some (numeric or literal) source identifier. Supposed to be unique within the source model.
 name – String, a humanreadable name of the source.
 tectonic_region_type – Source’s tectonic regime. See

filter_sites_by_distance_to_source
(integration_distance, sites)[source]¶ Filter out sites from the collection that are further from the source than some arbitrary threshold.
Parameters:  integration_distance – Distance in km representing a threshold: sites that are further than that distance from the closest rupture produced by the source should be excluded.
 sites – Instance of
openquake.hazardlib.site.SiteCollection
to filter.
Returns: Filtered
SiteCollection
.Method can be overridden by subclasses in order to achieve higher performance for a specific typology. Base class method calls
get_rupture_enclosing_polygon()
withintegration_distance
as a dilation value and then filters site collection by checking :meth: containment <openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon.intersects> of site locations.The main criteria for this method to decide whether a site should be filtered out or not is the minimum distance between the site and all the ruptures produced by the source. If at least one rupture is closer (in terms of great circle distance between surface projections) than integration distance to a site, it should not be filtered out. However, it is important not to make this method too computationally intensive. If shortcircuits are taken, false positives are generally better than false negatives (it’s better not to filter a site out if there is some uncertainty about its distance).

get_bounding_box
(dilation=0)[source]¶ Returns the bounding box of all the ruptures generated by the source, enlarged by the integration distance (dilation).

get_min_max_mag
()[source]¶ Return minimum and maximum magnitudes of the ruptures generated by the source.

get_rupture_enclosing_polygon
(dilation=0)[source]¶ Get a polygon which encloses all the ruptures generated by the source.
The rupture enclosing polygon is meant to be used in all hazard calculators to filter out sources whose ruptures the user wants to be neglected because they are too far from the locations of interest.
For performance reasons, the
get_rupture_enclosing_polygon()
should compute the polygon, without creating all the ruptures. The rupture enclosing polygon may not be necessarily the minimum enclosing polygon, but must guarantee that all ruptures are within the polygon.This method must be implemented by subclasses.
Parameters: dilation – A buffer distance in km to extend the polygon borders to. Returns: Instance of openquake.hazardlib.geo.polygon.Polygon
.

iter_ruptures
()[source]¶ Get a generator object that yields probabilistic ruptures the source consists of.
Returns: Generator of instances of sublclass of :class: ~openquake.hazardlib.source.rupture.BaseProbabilisticRupture.

modify
(modification, parameters)[source]¶ Apply a single modificaton to the source parameters Reflects the modification method and calls it passing
parameters
as keyword arguments.Modifications can be applied one on top of another. The logic of stacking modifications is up to a specific source implementation.
Parameters:  modification – String name representing the type of modification.
 parameters – Dictionary of parameters needed for modification.
Raises: ValueError – If
modification
is missing from the attribute MODIFICATIONS.

openquake.hazardlib.source.base.BaseSeismicSource

Parameters:  mfd – MagnitudeFrequency distribution for the source.
See
openquake.hazardlib.mfd
.  rupture_mesh_spacing – The desired distance between two adjacent points in source’s
ruptures’ mesh, in km. Mainly this parameter allows to balance
the tradeoff between time needed to compute the
distance
between the rupture surface and a site and the precision of that computation.  magnitude_scaling_relationship – Instance of subclass of
openquake.hazardlib.scalerel.base.BaseMSR
to describe how does the area of the rupture depend on magnitude and rake.  rupture_aspect_ratio – Float number representing how much source’s ruptures are more wide than tall. Aspect ratio of 1 means ruptures have square shape, value below 1 means ruptures stretch vertically more than horizontally and vice versa.
 temporal_occurrence_model – Instance of
openquake.hazardlib.tom.PoissonTOM
defining temporal occurrence model for calculating rupture occurrence probabilities
Raises: ValueError – If either rupture aspect ratio or rupture mesh spacing is not positive (if not None).

openquake.hazardlib.source.base.ParametricSeismicSource
Characteristic source typology represents seismicity occuring on a generic fault surface with seismic events rupturing the entire fault surface independently of their magnitude values.
Characteristic source typology can be used to model individual faults or fault segments that tend to produce essentialy same size earthquakes (see for instance: Schwartz, D. P., K. J. Coppersmith, Fault behavior and characteristic earthquakes: Examples from the Wasatch and San Andreas fault zones, J. Geophys. Res., 89, 56815698, 1984)
Parameters:  surface – Fault surface, see
openquake.hazardlib.geo.surface
.  rake – Angle describing rupture propagation direction in decimal degrees.
See also
openquake.hazardlib.source.base.ParametricSeismicSource
for description of other parameters.Note that a
CharacteristicFaultSource
does not need any mesh spacing, magnitude scaling relationship, and aspect ratio, therefore the constructor sets these parameters toNone
.NB: if you want to convert a characteristic source into XML, you must set its attribute surface_node to an explicit representation of the surface as a LiteralNode object.

Each line represents a hypocentral position defined in terms of the relative distance along strike and dip (from the upper, left corner of the fault surface i.e. the corner which results from the projection at depth of the first vertex of the fault trace) and the corresponding weight. Example 1: one single hypocentral position at the center of the rupture will be described by the following array[(0.5, 0.5, 1.0)]. Example 2: two possible hypocenters are admitted for a rupture. One hypocentre is located along the strike at 1/4 of the fault length and at 1/4 of the fault width along the dip and occurs with a weight of 0.3, the other one is at 3/4 of fault length along strike and at 3/4 of fault width along strike with a weight of 0.7.

 slip_list – Array describing the rupture slip direction, which desribes the rupture propagation direction on the rupture surface. Each line represents a rupture slip direction and the corresponding weight. Example 1: one single rupture slip direction with angle 90 degree will be described by the following array[(90, 1.0)]. Example 2: two possible rupture slip directions are admitted for a rupture. One slip direction is at 90 degree with a weight of 0.7, the other one is at 135 degree with a weight of 0.3.
