Abstract: White-noise source used in conjunction with analog computer is convenient method of analyzing structures subjected to complex ground motions and of assigning probabilities to deformations arising; it is suggested that standard large earthquake be represented by white ground accelerations having flat spectral density of 0.75 ft2/sec4/cps and duration of 1/2 min.
