Study on Instrumental Intensity Using Wenchuan Earthquake Records
This paper invesigates the peak ground acceleration (PGA) and peak ground velocity (PGV) regression equations as well as the PGA or PGV middle values in Chinese seismic intensity scale 2008 (the CSIS 2008), using the Wenchuan earthquake records of China with the full seismic information. Based on the analytical results, the PGA-V method is proposed to assess the instrumental intensity which combines both PGA and PGV. Besides, a problem is raised to further verify and modify the middle values of PGA or PGV for the seismic intensity VI and VII in the CSIS 2008.
