Abstract: This report is concerned with an empirical study of the response spectra of western United States earthquakes, principally in California. The basic data are logarithms of response spectral velocity as a function of period. They are the arithmetic average of the logarithm of the response spectral values for the two horizontal components of motion for 5 percent damping.
