- The thesis is concerned with the earthquake response of light equipment in structures. The motion of the ground during an earthquake is represented as a stochastic process in order to reflect uncertainty in the prediction of such motion. A number of different stochastic earthquake models are considered, and analytical methods are described for these models.
