A large number of seismic observation data and macroscopic survey of earthquake damage indicate that soil site may amplify the intensity of ground-motion and thus aggravate the damage to the structures on the soil site. The influence of site response on ground motion is one of the most important topics in earthquake engineering. The methods of predicting the site effects can be divided into two groups with respect to theoretical methods and empirical methods. The theoretical methods of predicting site effects are to analyse the site response to ground motion based on the theory of seismic wave propagation in which the detailed soil information is required. Whereas the empirical methods predicting the site effects by empirical prediction model which is determined using observed seismic data or ground pulsation data. According to whether the reference site is introduced, the empirical methods can be further divided into the reference site method and the non-reference site method. This article introduces in detail the principles, advantages and disadvantages of various methods of analysing site effects, which is of reference value for further research on site ground motion response.
