EZ-FRISK™ is a software package used by engineers and seismologists to perform site-specific earthquake hazard analysis. The key capabilities are:
- Seismic Hazard Analysis — calculating the probability of earthquake ground shaking at the surface or in the bedrock beneath a site based on the location of surrounding faults.
- Spectral Matching — adjusting an accelerogram to match a target response spectrum, while preserving realistic time-dependent characteristics of the ground motion.
- Site Response Analysis — calculating the ground motion at the surface given a bedrock ground motion and the layers of soil and rock that overlay the bedrock at the site.
