A method is presented for generating an acceleration time history to match a specified absolute acceleration response spectrum. The relationship between the change in time history required to effect a specified change in its spectrum is established and forms the basis for an iterative procedure for generating a spectrum consistent time history. It is shown that a high degree of accuracy can be achieved in a few applications of the iterative procedure.
