Abstract: Two iterative methods of developing time histories compatible with multi-damping spectra are presented. The common method of forcing agreement among design and calculated spectral values at several frequencies and multiple damping values may give poor, even meaningless results. The two simple iterative techniques presented here use acceleration impulse functions for "correcting" the time histories. In the first method the correction is calculated separately for each frequency and damping value and the maximum…
