    Empirical Improvements for Estimating Earthquake Response Spectra with Random-Vibration Theory by David M. Boore and Eric M. Thompson Abstract The stochastic method of ground-motion simulation is often used in combination with the random-vibration theory to directly compute ground-motion in-.   The response spectrum method of analysis is developed using the following steps. A modal analysis of the structure is carried out to obtain mode shapes, frequencies & modal participation factors. Using the acceleration response spectrum, an equivalent static load is derived which will provide the same maximum response as that obtained in each.

In base vibration the base of the structure.

This chapter surveys the state-of-the-art work in strong motion seismology and ground motion characterization.

Methods of ground motion recording and correction are first presented, followed by a discussion of ground motion characteristics including peak ground motion, duration of strong motion, and frequency by: Multi-Component Ground Motion Response Spectra for Coupled Horizontal, Vertical, Angular Accelerations, and Tilt In reality, earthquakes create movements in three-translational and three-rotational directions; hence the exact response at a point on the ground surface during an earthquake can only be obtained by.

At high frequencies f the spectrum of S-wave accelerations is characterized by a trend of exponential decay, e-~". In our study, the spectral decay parameter shows little variation at a single station for multiple earthquakes at the same distances, but it increases gradually as the epicentral distance increases.
