In
this paper, the damage potential of an earthquake ground motion is evaluated in
terms of the total power of the acceleration of the ground motion. By assuming
an appropriate spectral shape for the input energy spectrum, and using the
wellknown Parseval theorem for evaluating the total power of a random signal,
the peak amplification factor for the equivalent input energy velocity spectrum
can be determined. It is shown that the peak amplification factor for the input
energy spectrum depends on the peakgroundacceleration to peakgroundvelocity
ratio and duration of the strong motion phase of the ground motion. Values for
the equivalent input energy velocity amplification factor vary from about 2 to
10 for most of the recorded ground motions used in this study. Although a
considerable scatter of data is observed in this study, the peak amplification
factor predicted by the Fourier amplitude spectrum of the ground acceleration
provides a fairly good estimate of the mean value of the peak input energy
compared to that determined from inelastic dynamic time history analyses,
particularly for systems with high damping and low lateral strength. The peak
amplification factor derived in this paper provides a more consistent approach
for estmation of seismic demand when compared to an earlier empirical expression
used for the formulation of durationdependent inelastic seismic design spectra,
even though only a slight difference in the required lateral strenght results
from the use of the new formula [COBISS.SIID 1125473]
