A Study of Seismic Risk for Nicaragua, Part 1
- Type of resource
- Date created
- January 1975
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.
This report is the result of a seismic risk study conducted at Stanford and supported by Banco Central de Nicaragua and the National Science Foundation grant GI 39122. The total seismic risk analysis of Nicaragua is done in two parts. This report is Part I of our study. In general, Part I is associated with the future probable seismic loading determination of Nicaragua and how that loading can be used to determine future damage potential and "insurance risk".
