Abstract
THEORETICAL SOURCE RUPTURE AND WAVE PROPAGATION MODELS ARE USED TO SIMULATE STRONG MOTION ACCELERATION TIME HISTORIES. THE SYNTHETIC ACCELERATION RECORDS ARE COMPUTED BASED ON MODAL SUPERPOSITION, AND INCLUDE BOTH P-SV AND SH WAVE MOTION TO FREQUENCIES UP TO TEN HERTZ. IN PARTICULAR, STRONG GROUND MOTION IS CHARACTERIZED IN TERMS OF AN EVENT SIZE, EFFECTIVE DISTANCE FROM SOURCE TO SITE, AND THE SITE AZIMUTH WITH RESPECT TO THE DIRECTION OF RUPTION PROPAGATION.
