5 Summary Three simplified models, which are frequently used in practice, have been described and commented on in this chapter. r r r The point source model of tectonic energy radiation is applicable to earthquakes of smaller size (with earthquake magnitude less than 5) and distant earthquakes (with little differences among distances between a site and parts of a tectonic fault). The model assumes homogeneous Earth’s crust and the spherical shapes of the fronts of seismic wave’s propagation. It does not account for the effects of tectonic fault type and direction of rupture propagation in near-fault zone.

Trifunac and Brady’s (1975) definition of duration is based on the time interval at which 5% and 95% of the total energy has been recorded.
Spread of seismic waves as they propagate through Earth’s interior. e. transfer of wave energy into heat by ground particle friction caused by wave movement. 2) is used in the derivation of almost all attenuation relationships that assume a point source model. The attenuation relationships define dependence of the peak or spectral ground motion parameter on earthquake magnitude and the site-to-source distance. Recent attenuation relationships may include also consideration of soil type at a site and type of causative tectonic fault.
