This paper presents the framework of integrated earthquake simulation, which is a seamless simulation of all processes of earthquake hazard and disaster, for a pipeline network. Explained are the analysis model and method that are developed for the ground motion analysis and the seismic response analysis. As the core elements of these two analyses, large-scale dynamic 3D finite element analysis and metmodeling are developed. Examples of the integrated earthquake simulation for the pipeline network made by a prototype code are shown, and the results are discussed.
