vertical component of synthetic accelerograms

Post by aucofra »

Hello everyone.

Is it possible to generate the vertical component of synthetic accelerograms with Seismoartif?

Thank you

Excuse me.
Obviously I meant the vertical synthetic component of a seismic event.

As long as the defined target response spectrum is a vertical component response spectrum, there is no reason that SeismoArtif wouldn't work very well. So the key will be coming up with the appropriate vertical target spectrum. In the past, vertical spectra were taken to be 2/3 of the horizontal geometric mean spectrum. That may be still applicable, but you will likely need to study you own unique conditions to determine an appropriate vertical spectrum. Best of luck.

That's what I thought too... but I wanted to have confirmation.

Thank you so much
