In developing response spectral shapes for both the WUS and CEUS tectonic regions, three issues of particular significance arise: (1) selection of an appropriate normalization frequency and fractile level, (2) the paucity of data in the CEUS for M > 4.5, and ...

Characteristics of vertical and horizontal component strong ground motions have been examined to reveal general trends which may be of significance to structural analyses. Recordings at both rock and deep soil sites representative of WUS showed distinctly ...
