Development and Application of Realistic Earthquake Time Histories Compatible with Multiple-Damping Design Spectra
This paper describes the development and application of a new method for generation of realistic synthetic earthquake time histories compatible with multiple-damping design spectra. The effectiveness of this new method is demonstrated by applying it to adjust actual earthquake time histories to match the design spectra while minimizing perturbations on their characteristics. The paper also demonstrates that seismic responses of structures based on such spectrum-compatible realistic time histories are consistent with those obtained from analyses using an ensemble of time histories.

Programmatic Agreement Info
To comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Tonto National Forest developed a Programmatic Agreement (PA) and included it in Volume 5, Appendix O of the final EIS. The PA was created in cooperation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Office, tribes and other consulting parties. The PA contains an agreed upon process for identifying, evaluating and addressing adverse effects to historic properties associated with this undertaking.
