Computer-Based Ground Motion Attenuation Modeling Using Levenberg-Marquardt Method
In this paper, we present the results of research on the optimization modeling of ground motion attenuation of the two establish models by Youngs et al.  and the model of Lin and Lee  using the Levenberg-Marquardt method. This modeling is particularly important in the case of ground motion given that it takes a good model for predicting the strength of earthquakes in order to reduce the risk of the impact of the natural disaster. There are two main contributions of this research is the optimization of ground motion attenuation models with Levenberg-Marquardt method on two models that have been extensively used and the development of computer applications to help accelerate modeling, especially on large data with an area of extensive research. Levenberg-Marquardt method proved to give a good contribution to the modeling of ground motion attenuation that is indicated by the very small deviations between the predicted values with the actual value.
