Model Validation Against Saguenay Earthquake
The plots in this Appendix document the model validations against
the recorded motions of the Saguenay earthquake. Each modeler participating in the
validation exercise provided horizontal acceleration time histories computed at nine
Saguenay recording sites (Table 3-2). The acceleration histories were subsequently
integrated for velocity and displacement. The time histories are shown in Figures B-1.1
through B-1.27. The recorded Saguenay motion and the synthetic motions are plotted for
each recording station. The modeler, trace designation, and peak trace amplitude are
listed to the right of each trace.
Spectra and acceleration durations were computed from the acceleration
histories; velocity and displacement durations were computed from the integrated motions.
The spectral accelerations are plotted in Figures B-2.1 through B-2.9 and the durations in
Figures B-3.1 through B-3.27.
Three of the participants provided vertical motions. The vertical time
histories, spectra, and durations are shown in Figures B-4.1 through B-4.27, B-5.1 through
B-5.9, and B-6.1 through B-6.27.
