* *The most widely used algorithm for the Shock Response Spectrum (SRS) calculation for base excitation is the ramp invariant digital recursive filtering relationship given in:

David O. Smallwood, An Improved Recursive Formula for Calculating Shock Response Spectra, Shock and Vibration Bulletin, No. 51, May 1981. The link is: DS_SRS1.pdf

Smallwood duly gave the resulting filtering coefficients in his paper, but he omitted the derivation details for brevity.

This omission is typical for papers published in journals and conference proceedings, given that derivations may require dozens of steps.

The SRS derivation requires impulse response functions, Laplace transforms and Z-transforms.

The following paper fills in the details: ramp_invariant_base.pdf
