Seismic Zoning and Ground Motion Parameters for El Salvador
This series includes technical reports prepared by faculty, students and staff who are associated with the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford University. While the primary focus of Blume Center is earthquake engineering, many of the reports in this series encompass broader topics in structural engineering and materials, computational mechanics, geomechanics, structural health monitoring, and engineering life-cycle risk assessment. Each report includes acknowledgments of the specific sponsors for the report and underlying research. In addition to providing research support, the Blume Center provides administrative support for maintaining and disseminating the technical reports. For more information about the Blume Center and its activities, see https://blume.stanford.edu.
The final results of this study represent a set of seismic hazard maps and a set of size specific loading estimates for El Salvador. Further implementation of the result of this study in seismic code regulations for a seismic code for lateral loads, will narrow the gap of the actual engineering practices in El Salvador with the ones performed in countries with modern seismic codes.
