STANDARD RESPONSE SPECTRA BASED ON ALASKA EARTHQUAKES. FINAL RESEARCH REPORT

Results of studies of regional and local seismicity, combined with attenuation relations, are usually expressed in the form of peak particle accelerations. These values of peak particle accelerations are multiplied by the ordinates of standardized response spectra to obtain response spectra for use in design. This study involves the development of standardized response spectra from Alaska earthquakes. It includes collecting available strong motion records of Alaska earthquakes; correcting the uncorrected records using one of the available methods of earthquake record correction and providing a data bank of these corrected records; developing response spectra from each of these records; developing normalized vertical and horizontal response spectra (both mean and 85%) from the individual spectra; and comparing the developed spectra to corresponding ones from Japan and California earthquakes.
