Due to inertial and damping characteristics of strong motion seismographs, recorded ground motion accelerograms may in some cases be sufficiently in error to significantly affect the results obtained when generating standard response or Fourier spectra. Therefore, the objectives of this paper are to present an analytical method of generating standard spectra which will eliminate the above instrumental error and to show the significance of this error by presenting some sample results obtained from accelerograms representing both earthquakes and underground nuclear explosions.
