Abstract

In order to study the influence of basin on seismic responses of near-fault structure cluster due to the rupture of thrust fault, an integrated simulation method is used and two different models of earth media without basin and with basin are established. The seismic responses of near-fault structure cluster are simulated during a hypothetical Mw 6.0 earthquake. The presence of basin can increase greatly the bending moments of plane frame structures in structure cluster at the surface of the basin and variation range of horizontal displacement. There exists the trend of beating for both cases without basin and with basin by observing snapshots of simulated displacement of structure cluster. When simulating seismic responses of near-fault structure cluster, the geological structure of basin should be considered.
