Abstract In this article, the effects of site conditions (rock vs. soil) and tectonic regime (interplate vs. intraplate) on the pulse period of near-fault forward-directivity ground motions are investigated through linear regression analyses, and appropriate scaling laws that relate the pulse period to the earthquake magnitude are derived. The analyses of rock and soil sites are performed using interplate records only. The results show that for earthquakes of smaller magnitude, the pulse period… CONTINUE READING
