A number of recent publications on strong motion data processing ignore the complexities involved when calculating residual displacements by double integrating strong motion accelerograms. It looks as if there may be a lack of appreciation as to the limits associated with an accelerogram recorded by a standard three-component strong motion instrument. This may be in part because papers on strong motion data processing were published in different journals and languages during the past 40 and more years. In this article I present a brief summary of previous papers and a summary of some of the associated problems, so that researchers...
