Chapter
Part of the Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering book series (GGEE, volume 45)

Abstract

The chapter introduces the main concepts of the seismic input definition according to the seismic codes. In particular, the Italian (NTC-08, Nuove Norme Tecniche per le Costruzioni. Gazzetta Ufficiale della Repubblica Italiana, 2008) and European (1998-1 E, Design of structures for earthquake resistance Part 1: general rules, seismic actions and rules for buildings. European Committee for Standardization, 2004) standards are discussed in detail. Furthermore, the Response Spectrum method and the use of time histories as seismic input are analyzed.
