In spite of the idea of seismic coefficient, the maximum acceleration, which is equivalent to the seismic coefficient, is not a direct and only one parameter that accounts for the effects of earthquake shaking on a variety of structures. This is because, for instance, the period of shaking and number of cycles as well as the duration time can induce different extents of response in structures.
