Unformatted text preview: earthquake record. Plot the final response of the structural system (relative displacement of the tower with respect to the ground, relative velocity and relative acceleration). 2. You are asked by the local ASCE professional chapter to derive a seismic response spectra for inclusion in the local structural design codes. Assuming the ground motion provided in the previous problem is a common ground motion for the Ann Arbor area, please find a SDOF Response Spectra (maximum relative displacement versus natural frequency) for the damping ratio, = 0.03. When plotting the response spectra, please ensure your axes are log-log and find the curve for f = 0.1 to 10 Hz in increments of 0.05 Hz....
