The seismic hazard in Mexico has been re-evaluated recently and now we can estimate the maximum acceleration on rock for any given site in the country. This is the starting point for constructing site-specific earthquake design spectra that explicitly include the effects of soil dynamic amplification (site effects). The effects of soil-structure interaction (SSI) can be accounted for in two stages: first in the elastic design spectrum, considering the enlargement of the period and the increase in damping; and then in the strength reduction factor, taking into consideration the global ductility reduction.
