Treatment of earthquake accelerograms
Engineers involved in structural design in earthquake areas are interested in the forces exerted on a structure during strong earthquakes. To evaluate these forces it is necessary to have records of ground motion during such earthquakes. The most convenient motion to record as far as further processing is concerned is ground acceleration. This motion is obtained by using short period pendulums which function as accelerometers.
