This page hosts a range of resources to enrich the experience of using the book.
This GitHub repository contains Matlab code to perform selected calculations from the book. Readers interested in seeing numerical implementations of the equations, or extending these calculations for other uses, may find this repository useful.
We have recorded a series of short videos introducing basic concepts from the first half of the book at this link.
Identified errata in the 1st Edition.
Community collaboration in Slack
We have established the slack channel https://pshabook.slack.com in order to provide a community forum for knowledge sharing related to specifics of the book and more generally the topics of seismic hazard and risk analysis. If you would like to join please select this link.
Ground-Motion Model functions (Chapter 4)
This GitHub repository contains Matlab functions for a number of popular Ground Motion Models (as discussed in Chapter 4 of the book). The functions have been formatted to use consistent inputs and outputs, so that models can easily be exchanged, or used together in a logic tree. Further documentation of these functions can be found in the following report:
