The main objective of this study is to simulate broad-frequency-band strong ground motion waveforms resulting from the rupture of the Prince Island Fault and to provide input accelerograms for linear and non-linear time history analyses for 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 earthquake in Marmara region.
