Abstract

This paper presents the development of earthquake time-histories for use in the design of transportation facilities throughout the commonwealth of Kentucky. The scope of the work is divided into the following tasks: definition and evaluation of earthquakes in seismic zones that have the potential to generate damaging ground motions in Kentucky, specification of the source characteristics of the earthquakes, accounting for the spreading and attenuation of the ground motions to the top-of-the-bedrock at sites in Kentucky, and determination of seismic zoning maps for the commonwealth based on peak-particle accelerations, response spectra, and time histories.
