Title: Earthquake strong-motion instrumentation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Abstract

A network of strong-motion accelerographs has been installed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as part of the LLNL Site Seismic Safety Program. The network has two objectives: (1) to provide quantitative information on the severity of ground shaking for the assessment of structural effects at LLNL following an earthquake, and (2) to provide data for analyses of the free-field ground motion and the causative earthquake. The network includes digital multichannel central-recording systems in Building 111 (9-channel) and in Building 332 (18-channel). Independent analog accelerographs are included to provide redundancy. A multichannel system has also been installed on the spaceframe at the Laser facility. In addition to the structural instrumentation, six free-field stations are located at and near the Laboratory. The strong-motion network will provide rapid indication of peak ground-motion values as well as data for detailed post-earthquake studies of ground motion and structural response.
