About UCERF3 Earthquake Scenario Simulation
« on: May 17, 2023, 10:22:57 PM »
Hello all,

Is there any example for UCERF3 Earthquake Scenario Simulation? I always encounter error warning when applying Earthquake Simulation by UCERF3. I will really appreciate it if you could share any pertinent example or have any advice about this.

Moreover, to only run HAZ hazard similuation, do I need to define other information like VIA, ASD, HTA, MOD, ANA, etc? Or only the GI and HAZ information is enough for runing the hazard simulations?

We have just put out a new pre release for testing. In pre-release folder, has version #3.0.0,. In this new incarnation the earthquake selection has been moved to the tools menu-bar and as such you can use the tool w/o having to run the rest of the workflow.

can you send the ~/Documents/R2D/debug.log file to see if we can see what is up. if that fails possibly a zoom call will be needed.

Thanks for your advice! I have solved this problem in version 2.1 by deleting the default value "San Andreas" in HAZ-Earthquake Scenarios-Earthquake name and leaving it empty.

By the way, how to run version #3.0.0 which in pre-release folder? Unlike version 2.1 which has GUI, it seems that it only has code and I couldn't find the execute file.

Besides, I would like to know the version of UCERF3 in R2D. Is that UCERF3-TI or UCERF3-TD?

1. as for missing exe, did you download the mad or windows version?
2. i will ask the developer about UCERF to see if he knows as I am seeing nothing in the code that actually fetches the stuff from OpenSHA to answer the question., The code b.t.w is here:  https://github.com/NHERI-SimCenter/SimCenterBackendApplications/blob/master/modules/performRegionalEventSimulation/regionalGroundMotion/FetchOpenSHA.py

Hi Frank,

We're using the UCERF3 - TD (time dependent).  The time dependence probability of a rupture in UCERF3-TD model is conditional on a time duration - so when output the mean annual rate, OpenSHA converts the time-dependent rate to time independent rate (please see more details in the "Example of Coverting Time-Dependent Probability into an Effective Time-Indpendent Rate" on the page 2 of this OpenSHA's tech note: https://opensha.org/resources/PSHA_Primer_v2_0.pdf).

I think you've directed the user to the "FetchOpenSHA.py" - he should be able to find that Line 218 invokes getMeanAnnualRate() in OpenSHA (https://github.com/opensha/opensha/blob/8a65cdc9ad27f5c3245688759f6c687ee95eff15/src/main/java/org/opensha/sha/earthquake/ProbEqkRupture.java#L57) to do the above conversion.  Just checked that the time span duration used is 30 years.

Hello Frank and Kuanshi,

Thanks a lot for your reply. What you mentioned is very useful for me and my project. ;D
