Introduction

ART 3.0, Güralp Systems' Strong-Motion Analysis and Research Tool is a windows program which allows users of seismometers (accelerometers or velocimeters) produced by Güralp Systems Ltd, to process and analyze their recorded data for engineering seismology and earthquake engineering purposes. The time-histories can be exported in a number of different strong-motion record formats that are currently in use today.

ART3.0 is a major update of the second version of ART (ART2.0), which was released in 2006. A number of improvements were made following requests received from users, which are listed in section 5.1, page 60.

ART 3.0 is supplied in the standard distribution of Scream! versions 4.5 and later. It is also compatible with older versions of Scream!.

ART works closely with Scream! to make analysing seismic data easy. Scream!'s visualization and filtering capabilities allow you to view time series and quickly identify events. Strong-motion records can then be directly imported into ART from Scream! by selecting the appropriate portion of the record in Scream! - this will automatically start ART. Previously recorded data in Güralp Compressed Format (GCF) can be read in from pre-recorded files and analyzed. In addition, data can be imported into ART via a modem.

Currently the following functions, which are important for engineering seismologists and earthquake engineers, are supported (in addition most of these functions allow selection of multiple time-histories so a comparison between records is possible).
