Abstract

A parametric study on the scaling of natural accelerograms using spectrum intensity scales is presented. A series of nonlinear time-history analyses for a SDOF system is conducted using an ensemble of world-wide damaging earthquake records for a wide range of seismic conditions. Structural parameters considered in the study include: yield seismic coefficient, yield natural period and postyield stiffness. The effectiveness of several spectrum intensity scales is evaluated in terms of their correlation with displacement ductility demand. Results indicate that there is not a unique scale with best performance over the entire range of strength and stiffness. An alternative combined criterion to define spectrum intensity is proposed in terms of a system of spectrum intensity scales. The system optimises the correlation between spectrum intensity and displacement ductility demand. This is achieved by defining regions in the space of structural parameters for which it is possible to identify a spectrum intensity scale of best performance.
