For performance-based design, nonlinear dynamic structural analysis using various types of input ground motions is required. Stochastic (simulated) ground motions are sometimes useful as input motions, because their properties can be varied systematically to study the impact of ground-motion properties on structural response, and producing large numbers of ground motions is simple. This paper describes an approach by which the wavelet packet transform can be used to characterize complex time… CONTINUE READING
