This study examines the effects of geological conditions on the response spectra and the ground-motion parameters such as peak ground acceleration, velocity, and displacement.

Design spectra are presented for various sites such as alluvium earthquake response spectrum, rock deposits, and alluvium layers underlain by rock deposits.

Housner began to publish earthquake response spectrum of response spectra from accelerographs. This was earthquake response spectrum further developed into a design response spectrum for use in structural design, and this basic form with some modifications is now the basis for structural design in seismic regions throughout the world typically plotted against structural "period", the inverse of frequency.

For "regular" low-rise buildings, the structural response to earthquakes is characterized by the fundamental mode a "waving" back-and-forthand most building codes permit design forces to be calculated from the design spectrum on the basis of that frequency, but for more complex structures, combination of the results for many modes calculated through modal analysis is often required.


Maximum likely story drift is taken earthquake response spectrum the square root of the sum of story drifts squared. The inertial forces for each mode are simply given by the product of the stiffness matrix times the modal displacement.

Compute and print equivalent d. Figure 6 shows the distribution of inertia forces in each of the first three modes of vibration. Distribution of Inertia Forces The textual output earthquake response spectrum The base shear forces in earthquake response spectrum mode are shown in Figure 6, and correspond to the sum of inertial forces over the height of the structure.

The maximum likely and maximum possible base shear force is given by the square root of the sum of shear forces squared, and sum of absolutio shear forces, respectively.

For each mode, the overturning moment is given by the sum of inertia forces times the vertical distance from the base.

Once again, we use the square root of the sum of the squares earthquake response spectrum likely overturning moments, and the sum of absolute values for maximum possible overturning moments. Click here to visit the complete input file.
