Abstract

Recent development of free field ground motions and structural design motions are described with emphasis on investigations done in Japan. The results of analyses of peak free field accelerations and frequency characteristics of response spectra are discussed. Also the recent topics of studies on ground motions including strong-motion earthquake instrument arrays and soil-structure interaction problems are described with use of the results of measurements of strong -motion earthquakes.

Free Field and Design Motions During Earthquakes

St. Louis, Missouri

Recent development of free field ground motions and structural design motions are described with emphasis on investigations done in Japan. The results of analyses of peak free field accelerations and frequency characteristics of response spectra are discussed. Also the recent topics of studies on ground motions including strong-motion earthquake instrument arrays and soil-structure interaction problems are described with use of the results of measurements of strong -motion earthquakes.
