Abstract:

A site specific seismic evaluation was performed in support of the seismic design of the Ground Based Free Electron - Technology Integration Experiment GBFEL-TIE facilities at the White Sands Missile Range, NM. GBFEL- TIE Project specifications called for the facilities to be designed to withstand the motions of the operating basis earthquake OBE which had a peak ground acceleration of 0.15 g. The principal objectives of this study included a evaluation of the probability of exceeding the design peak acceleration of 0.15 g b development of a set of site-specific accelerograms considered representative of the OBE which could be used subsequently in design and c development of a representative set of response spectra for design. Seismic hazard and one-dimensional dynamic response analyses were performed to provide guidance necessary for proper design.
