A wave superposition model is proposed to predict the field motion on the basis of the seismic records obtained from a strong motion array. By assuming the ground motion to be a homogeneous random process, one may obtain its time-space spectrum by the FFT technique. The stochastic responses of an underground tunnel and a bridge under the simulated excitations based on that spectrum are calculated.
