Abstract

This paper discusses the effect of soil structure interaction on seismograms. In particular, seismograms of the 1979 Imperial Valley earthquake, taken from two instruments located close together, are discussed. One of these instruments is down hole and the other one is housed inside the recorder structure. It is shown that soil structure interaction theory accounts well for the differences in the measured vertical accelerations but not so well for the horizontal accelerations.
