AbstractThis paper describes the characteristics of derived sets of bedrock seismic motions for Quebec City. Using different methods, three sets of acceleration time histories (i.e., accelerograms) of seismic motions were developed in this study. These include: (i) scaled accelerograms of recorded seismic motions, (ii) artificial accelerograms compatible with the specified uniform hazard spectrum, and (iii) simulated accelerograms for predominant magnitude-distance pairs for the location. The motions are consistent with the seismic hazard for rock type B as defined in the 2005 edition of the National Building Code of Canada. The accelerograms presented in this paper are considered to be representative of the bedrock seismic motions for Quebec City.
