The earthquakes are abrupt and sudden, and, in few seconds, they can lead to huge casualties. Nowadays, several approaches can be used to better know the seismic movement than we can expect when and where will have an earthquake. These approaches kind, always begins with a full study of the seismic action: the seismic birth, the wave formation and propagation, accelerometers and associated spectrum representation, etc.
The northern region in Morocco has an important seismic activity, indeed, this region has been struck during its history by many destructive earthquakes. In this paper, we present and discuss the Mediterranean earthquake, January 25, 2016, saved in ZGH station located in Zeghanghane near of Nador city, Morocco.
In this case, we determine the spectral response of the ground motion for ZGH station, and study his influence on the structures as well as make a comparison with the requirements of the Moroccan seismic construction regulations (RPS) 2000 revised in 2011.
