Earthquake simulation Wikipedia

Dynamic experiments on building and non-building structures may be physical as with shake-table testing or virtual (based on computer simulation). In all cases, to verify a structure's expected seismic performance, researchers prefer to deal with so called 'real time-histories' though the last cannot be 'real' for a hypothetical earthquake specified by either a building code or by some
