This software can be used to generate suites of accelerograms for nonlinear dynamic analysis of new or existing structures. The program is capable of reading accelerograms and spectra saved in different text file formats. This collection of ground motion records and spectra is then used in the simulation phase for the definition of target spectrum or envelope shapes.
Currently, the target spectrum can be created by following rules from a selection of more than 25 National Building Codes including Eurocode 8 rules, ASCE 41-13 and various Regulations worldwide, by computing the spectrum of a specific accelerogram or by simply loading a user-defined spectrum. With both the target spectrum and the envelope type defined, an artificial accelerogram is generated and a comparison between its response spectrum and the target spectrum is given including the mean error in percentage, coefficient of variation, and PGA of the accelerogram.
Finally, due to its full integration with the Windows environment, SeismoArtif allows for numerical and graphical results to be copied to any Windows application (e.g. MS Excel, MS Word, etc.), noting that the characteristics of the plots can be fully customised from within the program itself.
