Application based on an efficient method for considering the directionality effect of earthquakes on structures.

LOGO_matchpercentileMatchPercentile. Application developed to find ground motions compatible with the response for a specific percentile. As input parameters, it is required to enter the two acceleration horizontal components, the critical damping for the response spectrum calculation, the range of periods of the spectrum, the number of iterations needed for a better adjustment of the target spectrum and the percentile corresponding to the required structural response.
