Abstract: A new interactive computer code is presented in this work for the calculation of artificial earthquake records that comply with any arbitrarily specified target response spectra or power spectral density requirements. It does not create new time histories but modifies, on the basis of a deterministic approach, existing records to fit specific requirements. In addition, among its other features, it performs quadratic baseline correction and calculates correlation factors for up to three earthquake records.
