Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability


The difficulties associated with the determination of reliable autoregressive (AR) approximations of the Pierson-Moskowitz and Davenport spectra are examined from the standpoint of developing appropriate mitigation techniques. Further, a measure of the suitability of a given spectrum for AR modeling which can be used to predict the quality of a particular AR approximation or to select an appropriate value of the AR syste system order is introduced.
