Seismic Hazard Harmonization in Europe (SHARE)

Akkar, Sinan
SHARE will deliver measurable progress in all steps leading to a harmonized assessment of seismic hazard – in the definition of engineering requirements, in the collection and analysis of input data, in procedures for hazard assessment, and in engineering applications. SHARE will create a unified framework and computational infrastructure for seismic hazard assessment and produce an integrated European probabilistic seismic hazard assessment (PSHA) model and specific scenario based modeling tools. The SHARE results will deliver long-lasting structural impact in areas of societal and economic relevance, they will serve as a reference for the Eurocode 8 application, and will provide homogeneous input for the correct seismic safety assessment for critical industry, such as the energy infrastructures and the re-insurance sector. SHARE will cover the whole European territory, the Maghreb countries in the Southern Mediterranean and Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean.
