Abstract

Site specific design motions at a site near Pyrgos city, western Greece G.-A. Tselentis, E. Sokos Seismology Laboratory, Department of Geology, University of Patras, Rio 26110, Patras, Greece ABSTRACT Site specific design motions have been derived at the construction site of the new National hospital of Pyrgos, Western Greece. An analysis of the relevant contribution of all the seismic sources affecting the site, has been performed taking into account the detailed seismotectonic features of the region. By combining stochastic and deterministic methodologies, the expected basement acceleration time histories have been constructed taking into consideration both source and path effects. The results from a detailed shallow seismic reflection investigation were combined with the data from geotechnical investigations and were used to construct the site's model which was used in calculating the effect of the upper layers on the expected wavefield at the site. The amplification f
