This study is related to the particular strong intermediate-depth Vrancea earthquakes. Its purpose is to confirm once again the significant influence of the seismic source mechanism to the seismic input at a given site through estimates of different engineering parameters, used to describe the damage potential of the ground motion due to an earthquake. Real and synthetic time-series have been used in the computations. The synthetic seismic wavelets have been computed applying the neo-deterministic seismic hazard assessment procedure and the relevant software and hardware facilities at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Trieste, Italy. To derive the ground motion parameters of interest, all seismic signals have been uniformly processed by the Seismosignal software.
