An analysis procedure for fault-soil-structure systems based on the Monte Carlo simulation method is presented. Both ground motion (near field and far field) and spatial distribution of soil properties are first generated using various spectral representation-based procedures. Next, dynamic nonlinear finite element simulations with stochastic input are performed. The procedure is used for assessment of soil liquefaction potential and for predicting the seismic response of large scale structures.
