Abstract

The realistic definition of seismic input can be performed by means of advanced modelling codes based on the modal summation technique. These codes and their extension to laterally heterogeneous structures allow us to accurately calculate synthetic signals, including body waves and of surface waves, corresponding to different source and anelastic structural models, taking into account the effect of local geological conditions. For the estimation of the destructive potential of
