This paper presents an application of the Conditional Mean Spectrum (CMS) methodology for sourcing accelerogram records for use in dynamic analyses of structures in intraplate regions of lower seismicity. The main challenges with deriving CMS for selecting and scaling accelerograms in regions of lower seismicity stem from the paucity of representative strong motion data and event recurrence data. A step-by-step illustration of the methodology is presented using the south-eastern Australia (SEA) region as an example. The study involves making use of a diversity of Ground Motion Prediction Expressions (GMPEs) including a recently developed regionally adjustable Component Attenuation Model (CAM..View full abstract
