5b for n = 5 %. It is evident that the accuracy obtained with Eq. (13) is very satisfactory in all cases. Using Eqs. (10) and (12) and the well-known relation between spectral displacement and pseudo-spectral velocity: PSm = (2p/T)ÁSd, the following relations can be established between CAD and PSm for M&P wavelets: PSm;0;max p2 ¼ CAD 2Tp for zero damping À Á PSm;n;max p 1 À eÀ2pcn ½1 þ ðc À 1ÞnŠ ¼ 4 c n Tp CAD for damping n 6¼ 0 ð14Þ ð15Þ in which PSm,0 and PSm,n denote the pseudo-spectral velocity for zero damping and damping equal to n, respectively.

It appears that, if directivity phenomena are present, the equal displacement rule holds for periods larger than the pulse period [30]. It is noted that the inelastic behavior of structures to various pulses has been the object of interest of several researchers [13, 31]. A common observation is that the inelastic behavior can be very sensitive to multiple parameters, such as the viscous damping and the inelastic model used. In this section, the effect of the most significant (first detected) directivity pulse inherent in near-fault ground motions on the inelastic response of SDOF structures is investigated.
