Welcome to SeismiCat
SeismiCat provides an on-line seismic risk assessment tool for building property owners, lenders, insurers and municipal analysts.
The SeismiCat single-site tool uses updated (2010) USGS ground motions computed directly for the specific site class rather than scaled from the B/C site condition. Inspect the hazards for the site location, including fault maps (Alquist-Priolo fault rupture zones and USGS Quaternary faults), site geology and liquefaction susceptibility.
SeismiCat provides free seismicat hazard lookup to assist in scoping PML studies.
SeismiCat offers ATC-13, CODA, and HAZUS damage models. Structural Engineers can over-ride the engineering parameters. Model the building, run the risk assessment, inspect the results, then re-run or generate and download a report.
Results are saved to a secure, online database to build up a portfolio. Browse, re-load a building into the analytics, or retrieve reports. The database can also be used in portfolio seismic risk analysis, done by ImageCat off-line with the multi-site tool.
When an earthquake occurs, ImageCat obtains the ShakeMap from the U.S. Geological Survey and analyses the buildings in your portfolio to evaluate the potential for damage. Regional scenarios and historical earthquakes can also be evaluated for the damage they might produce.
