Abstract

Most of the recent controversy concerning seismic hazards to proposed nuclear facilities in California has centered not on the usual problems of earthquake-resistant design but instead on the possible hazards associated with ground displacements by faulting through the foundation of a nuclear plant. In addition, there has been much difference of opinion as to the maximum credible earthquake that should be specified for any given area.
