Abstract

The time derivative of acceleration, termed jerk, represents a physical property reflected through a sudden change of acceleration, and is expressed in m/s(3). Since jerk is felt by humans, it has been widely used as a common (dis)comfort parameter. In earthquake engineering, due to the inevitable need for further progress in understanding ground motions and soil, structural and non-structural responses, new frontiers need to be examined. Therefore, lately, there has been an increasing interest in jerk, and various research efforts have been made towards its applications. Since a proper overview of the jerk-related literature applicable to earthquake engineering is missing, the main purpose of this paper is to fill the gap and provide a starting point for future studies.
