5.2. Building hazard curves from the contribution of individual seismic sources

In this section, we are going to look at the determination of hazard models in an incremental way. We first consider individual seismic sources, with different properties in terms of their ground-motion variability, and ask ourselves what kind of  hazard curve they can produce. Subsequently, we will extend the discussion to a whole distribution of earthquakes of different magnitudes spatially distributed within an circular area.
