Fault Displacement Hazard Initiative

Fault Displacement Hazard Initiative: Developing Database, Models, and Engineering Implementation Guidelines

The FDHI project is a multi-year, community-based research project coordinated by the University of California initiated in 2018. The objectives of this project are to compile a modern database of coseismic fault displacements, develop models to predict the distribution and amplitude of potential primary and distributed displacements due to surface fault rupture, and develop engineering application guidelines for fault displacement hazard.
