In order to allow the comparison of the hazard spectrum (in acceleration or velocity) predicted by a hazard model to the Eurocode 8 design spectra, we provide a service to retrieve the design spectra (spectral acceleration or spectral velocity) for a given peak ground acceleration.
Calculations are done after Dogangün Adem, Ramazan Livaoglu (2006): A comparative study of the design spectra defined by Eurocode 8, UBC, IBC and Turkish Earthquake Code on R/C sample buildings. Journal of Seismology 10, pp 335-351.
