Quick Start

First Step – Collect geological data
1st step

Start collecting geological information about the site(s) you want to investigate. The information is important for ShakyGround to propagate the seismic waves in the surface. A detailed information about thicknesses, shear wave velocity and density is important considering the fact that local geology greatly influences site response. For every site you need to define the coordinates: in this way it will be very easy to produce shaky ground maps.

Second Step -Define your input Earthquake

Define your input earthquake. You need to know few parameters as the magintude and the epicentral coordinates of the earthquake. You can select quakes really happened in your zone or quakes you think could happen. See Input for more information on data needed as Shakyground Inputs.

Third Step -Run a SimulationThird Step

After defining these parameters what you have to do is “Run a simulation”. Here is a results example:
