Abstract

Probabilistic seismic hazard maps are constructed by utilising a new methodology called the parametric-historic method, since it combines the best features of the 'deductive' (Cornell CA. Engineering seismic risk analysis. Bull Seism Soc Am 1968;58;1583-606) and 'historic' (Veneziano D, Cornell CA, O'Hara T. Historic method for seismic hazard analysis. Elect Power Res Inst, Report NP-3438, Pale Alto, 1984) procedures.
