Title: Strong ground motion data recorded at the Idaho National Laboratory during the 1983 Borah Peak, Idaho earthquake. [Appendix contains plot generated by accelerogram showing peak valves amplitude, response spectra, displacement, veolocity and acceleration]

Abstract

The Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) is located approximately 80 km southeast of the epicenter for the 1983 M{sub S} 7.3 Borah Peak Idaho earthquake. Thirteen strong-motion accelerographs located at various facilities around the INEL Site recorded strong-ground motions from the Borah Peak earthquake. The strong-motion records were digitized and processed resulting in corrected acceleration, velocity, and displacement time-histories and response and Fourier spectra. Peak horizontal accelerations had a range of 0.022 to 0.078 g for accelerographs located at free-field and basement sites. Values of 0.037 {minus} 0.817 g were recorded at accelerographs located within structures above basement level. Peak vertical accelerations ranged from 0.16 (basement level) to 0.059 g (top of structures). The peak amplitudes of the response and Fourier Spectra occur in the 2 -- 10 hz frequency range. Appendices include Borah Peak earthquake accelerograph data printouts. 8 refs., 4 figs., 7 tabs.
