The duration of the ground motion affects the response of the structures and especially the response spectrum amplification. The phase angle controls the shape of the wavelet, which, thus, can best fit the velocity time history. The importance of the number of cycles and the phase modulation of the wavelets on their capability to match pulse-like ground motions was reported by Vassiliou and Makris [20]. Determination of the Parameters of the Directivity Pulse … 35 The use of the above-mentioned four parameters gives the M&P wavelet additional flexibility compared to simpler models, enabling it to better approximate more complex velocity pulses.

Such generation of artificial ground motions with well-defined properties that are consistent with both the physical condition and the characteristics of the actual recorded ground motions is very important in seismic design. Non-linear dynamic structural analyses generally require the use of large numbers of input ground motions in order to determine the performance of structures, while the number of available recorded ground motions is limited and scaling of existing records is not appropriate in most cases.
