Pure and Applied Geophysics (PAGEOPH) invites submissions from seismologists and earthquake engineers for a special edition entitled “Best Practices in Physics-based Fault Rupture Models for Seismic Hazard Assessment of Nuclear Installations”.
Submissions are requested on all aspects related to numerical simulations and modeling for the different components of site specific seismic hazard assessments (SHA) of nuclear installations, from the characterization of seismic source, ground motion and site response, to hazard computation and seismic response of structures of nuclear installations.
The publication aims to bring together the current practice of SHA for nuclear installations and the current state-of-the-art of advanced knowledge of physics-based earthquake models to evaluate the applicability of physics-based models and provide practical guidance for use in SHA.
The submission deadline is July 31, 2016. Papers will be published individually online shortly after being accepted. The combined manuscripts will be published both as a topical issue of the journal PAGEOPH and Book Reprint later.
