The widely known path integral method, derived from the application of the Chapman–Kolmogorov equation, is described in details and discussed with reference to the main resul...Expand

One of the most important problems in the field of earthquake ngineering is to suppose reasonable arthquake excitation patterns for the dynamic analysis of structures. In particular, in the response… Expand

The energy fluctuation scale, θE, of a narrow‐band Gaussian response is introduced. It is shown that E and associated bandwidth measures (e.g., 1/vOθE) are: (1) Simply related to both the spectral… Expand
