- Magnitude (MW)

- Component: [Average Horizontal]
- Standard Deviation Type: [Total, Zero]
- Sigma Truncation Type
- Sigma Truncation Level
If the Earthquake Rupture related parameters are set from an Earthquake Rupture object, the hypocenter of the latter must have been set (otherwise directivity parameters cannot be computed). This model works only for strike-slip earthquakes (even though Somerville et al. (1997) handles all types), and is implemented only for the average horizontal component. It would be possible to add fault normal and fault parallel components as well, but the specs would have to be obtained from the author as the necessary info is not contained in the associated paper. SA periods down to 0 are included even though the directivity effects are zero below 0.6 sec (PGA is not an option for this reason). See the above referenced publication for more information.
