MODULATE is a research project financed by the Agence National de la Recherche (ANR), and coordinated by the Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM).

The project aims at developing a methodology based on the physics of surface waves, to describe the evolution of the spectral content of the ground motion at a site located in a sedimentary basin. The stochastic model of long period ground motion is to be superimposed to standard simulations of body waves to assess the performance-based reliability of large-scale structures such as high-rise buildings, long-span bridges and liquid-storage tanks.
