Mimoglou et al. It is noticed that Baker [7] and Zamora and Riddell [26] have also used similar indices, specifically the time integral of the squared acceleration [27] and the time integral of the squared velocity [22], as intensity measures of the pulse-like content of the ground motion. 2 Determination of the Amplitude, A Let us consider a harmonic ground motion of amplitude dg,max, which is applied as base excitation to an undamped SDOF oscillator. At resonance, the amplitude of the response of the oscillator builds up almost linearly with the number of cycles and for an excitation of c cycles the maximum response is [28]: Sd;0 ðTres Þ ¼ p c dg;max ð8Þ in which Sd,0(Tres) denotes the spectral displacement at resonance for zero damping.

First, the period of the pulse is determined from the peak of the Sd  Sm product spectrum, a new concept defined as the product of the velocity and the displacement response spectra. The remaining parameters of the M&P wavelet are derived from the targeted response spectrum of the ground motion applying a relationship that is established between the Cumulative Absolute Displacement (CAD) of a wavelet and its peak spectral amplitude. The method follows a well-defined procedure that can be easily implemented in a computer code for the automatic determination of the pulse parameters of a given ground motion.
