Iyengar, RN and Prodhan, KC (1983) Classification and rating of strong-motion earthquake records. In: Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics, 11 (3). pp. 415-426.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
Ninety-two strong-motion earthquake records from the California region, U.S.A., have been statistically studied using principal component analysis in terms of twelve important standardized strong-motion characteristics. The first two principal components account for about 57 per cent of the total variance. Based on these two components the earthquake records are classified into nine groups in a two-dimensional principal component plane. Also a unidimensional engineering rating scale is proposed. The procedure can be used as an objective approach for classifying and rating future earthquakes.
