This article summarizes the evaluation of ground‐motion simulation methods implemented on the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) Broadband Platform (BBP), version 14.3 (as of March 2014). A seven‐member panel, the authorship of this article, was formed to evaluate those methods for the prediction of pseudospectral accelerations (PSAs) of ground motion. The panel’s mandate was to evaluate the methods using tools developed through the validation exercise (Goulet et al., 2015) and to define validation metrics for the assessment of the methods’ performance. This article summarizes the evaluation process and conclusions from the panel. The five broadband, finite‐source simulation...
