The selection and scaling of earthquake ground motions is an important step in defining the seismic loads that will be applied to a structure during structural analysis, and serves as the interface between seismology and engineering. Recent research suggests that potential problems caused by ground motion scaling are due primarily to discrepancies in the shape of elastic response spectra between the ground motion to be scaled and the ‘target’ ground motion desired. These discrepancies may… CONTINUE READING
