The main objective of this study is to simulate broad-frequency-band strong ground motion waveforms resulted from the rupture of Prince Islands Fault, to provide input accelerograms for linear and non-linear time history analyses of the engineering structures. Simulations are performed using Green's Function methodology developed by Hutchings and Wu (1990) [1]. The methodology considers physical based rupture process and takes into account different source parameters to investigate their effects on amplitude and frequency content of simulated waveforms. As a result, the low frequency energy content of the simulated waveforms has significant role in the characteristic of strong ground motion for large earthquakes in Marmara region.
