A response spectrum is a plot of the maximum response of a structure to a range of ground motion frequencies. It is used to estimate the maximum seismic forces that a structure is likely to experience during an earthquake. Response spectra can be generated for different seismic zones and soil types, and are used to determine the design forces for structures. IS: 1893: 2002 (Part I) provides guidelines for generating response spectra and using them in seismic design.
