Some ground motions recorded in the 2010 Maule, the 2011 Great East Japan and the
1985 Mexico Earthquakes are used in this paper for analyzing the structural response of typical buildings using simple models. Lateral displacements of structures, hysteretic energy response spectra and a measure of earthquake damage are calculated in this paper using the selected records. From results found in the analysis conducted in this paper, seismic design implications for structures are discussed. It is
found that structures on soft soil need to have special seismic design considerations.
