Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) has become a fundamental tool in assessing seismic hazards and for estimating seismic design and seismic safety evaluation ground motions. It is used both on a site-specific basis for important and critical facilities and on a national scale for building codes. This report describes a project to test and verify the numerical approaches and software used in PSHA. The project was sponsored by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center's Lifelines Program. A Working...
