But in this model, we see that the coefficient G is horizontal =1.5 and vertical=0.25.
in all of the models said coefficient g is variable.
dear sir, can you explain this scaling factor, I took the ground motion from ngawest2.berkeley.edu website. and I don't know how to get this scaling factor to fill in the model. When you said ''ground motions can be scaled differently'' , it means that the interval impacts of GM are different which different scaling or something? the GM that I took from that website is not changed, right?
