43 records have higher amplitudes in high frequency (low- period) ranges. The difference in spectral shape between WUS and CEUS records is more evident for the rock records. Having larger amplitudes at long periods implies that for the same PGA, the earthquake records in WUS will have larger PGV, therefore inducing larger displacements in the structure. 5.2.6 Correlation between PGV and S1, PGA and M Several correlations between PGV and other ground mo- tion parameters such as S1, PGA, and M were developed dur- ing this study. After reviewing recent publications related to this subject, a revised form of a PGV correlation suggested by Abrahamson (2005) for the estimation of PGV from spectral acceleration at one second (S1) was selected for use, as dis- cussed in Section 5.3. It is expected that in the future, USGS will publish recom- mended PGV values for different locations nationwide. In that case the S1-PGV correlation will be replaced in favor of design PGV values, and the designers can use Newmark displace- ment correlations directly using the USGS-recommended PGV values.

The majority of these correlations are based various statistical analyses. on the results of direct Newmark sliding block analyses on a set of strong motion records.
