In design of structures subjected to earthquakes or ground shock from nuclear blasts, shock is described by record of foundation motion obtained from structure that was subjected to similar shock, presenting such information in form of response spectra; analytical models for particular types of structures are developed for studying errors that may occur when such comparative record is used.
