Recorded Time Histories

  A data base containing acceleration records of relevant seismic events has been developed. A series of procedures for transforming (e.g. scaling, filtering) the records, and displaying the characteristics of various time histories (e.g. frequency content, response spectra) help the user in selecting the appropriate input motion as ground acceleration or displacement.
