Macro-micro analysis method for large-scale computation of wave propagation processes
Muneo Hori, Tsuyoshi Ichimura


This paper presents the macro-micro analysis for the prediction of the strong motion distribution in a metropolis (Ichimura and Hori,2000 and Hori and Ichimura,2000).The key features of the method are the stochastic modeling of the crust and ground structure and the multi-scale analysis for higher spatial and time resolution. The formulation of the macro-micro analysis is presented. An actual earthquake is simulated, and the results are compared with measured data, showing the basic of validity of the macro-micro analysis.
