In this paper an approach is taken in the time domain analysis, which yields an upper bound of the maximum response. A rational design rule seems to be that the less information or data one has, the more conservative design one should take. Although a structure with a single input is considered here, the extension of the present technique to a structure with multi-excitations appears to be possible.
