Title:Modification of ground motions for use in Central North America: Southern Illinois surface ground motions for structural analysis

Abstract:The lack of ground motion time history records with a 1000-year return period hazard for Central North America (CNA) often requires earthquake engineering researchers in the area to develop ground motions of their own. This report briefly describes a procedure for developing 1000-year return period ground motion time history records, and this procedure was applied for 10 sites in southern Illinois. Accompanying this report are 20 individual ground motion time history records developed at each of the 10 sites (for a total of 200 ground motions). These ground motions may be useful for various purposes including in dynamic structural analyses of bridges and other structures in southern Illinois (and potentially other CNA regions). The accompanying ground motions are developed following the detailed procedure presented in Kozak et al. [2017]. See "Has Parts" for persistent link to ground motion data files.
