Correlation between macroseismic intensities and seismic ground motion parameters

G. F. Panza, R. Cazzaro, F. Vaccari

Abstract


We propose correlation relations between the macrosesimic intensity felt in Italy and displacement, velocity, acceleration, design ground acceleration obtained from synthetic seismograms modelling the ground motion generated by past seismicity. The results are in good agreement with empirical relations given by other authors and compare quite well with the few observations available in the Italian territory.
