The purpose of this paper is to develop a proper tool for structural analysis and designing in near‐fault regions where the level of earthquake hazard is more and its nature is different from far‐field regions.
The paper uses near‐fault records and pulse extraction using wavelet analysis and designs a spectra concept.
The paper developed a proper design spectra for near‐fault structural analysis and design.
This paper using pulse extraction for developing a 3D response spectrum with paying attention to earthquake magnitude is new and final design spectra proposed is valuable.
