Abstract Three empirical methods of estimating response spectra are reviewed. It is shown that these methods produce comparable results, provided that the comparisons are made in a consistent manner. Although the traditional method of scaling amplification factors by peak ground motions is fundamentally reasonable, there exist some significant discrepancies between scaled and other types of spectra. The basic reason for this is that the amplification factors commonly used in the engineering… CONTINUE READING
