Calculating the Fourier transform of the acceleration time
history wave, the wave can be expressed by the
superposition type of each frequency components: (64)
where, 2A(ωs) indicates the Fourier amplitude of the design
basis acceleration ( Acceleration Fourier spectrum). The double integral of Eq.(64) by the time t gives the
displacement time history: (65) where, (66) Using Eq.(61): (61)
the displacement response time history at the j-th
interface is given by: (67)
And, the acceleration response time history is also given
by: (68) Furthermore, the shear strain time history γj(t) in the j-th
stratum is given by: (69) The calculations of Eq.(68) and Eq.(69) gives the
response of acceleration and the shear strain. (68)
The computations for Eq.(68) and Eq.(69) are performed
using FFT. (5) Nonlinear Analysis
One of the numerical procedures for nonlinear analysis is
the equivalent linear analysis procedure, where the
equivalent shear modulus Gej and the equivalent damping
factor hej are determined in correspondence to the
equivalent shear strain γe...
