We applied deterministic and probabilistic methodologies for seismic hazard assessment at Tirana city, expressed in terms of horizontal peak ground acceleration (PGA). The deterministic evalues of PGA are determined according to the scenario R = 6.4 km and Mmax = 6.0, while the probabilistic ones have been assessed applying the smoothed seismicity approach. The results that derive from the two methodologies show equal values of PGA for the selected site inside Tirana city and higher than the PGA values established by the official maps as well as the actual seismic coefficients that are being applied by the actually in force national design code KTP-N.2–89 for Tirana area.
