The paper aims to investigate the effect of far-field ground motions with two amplitude modulation means, i.e. peak ground acceleration (PGA) and peak ground velocity (PGV), on seismic base shear coefficients of long-period structures. Three far-field earthquake records and one typical near-field accelerogram are chosen as input ground motions. Six steel reinforced concrete frame-core wall structures are designed and studied through dynamic time history analyses with a set of four selected ground motions scaled to the fortification earthquake level. Numerical results show that, by scaling PGA, the seismic base shear coefficients under far-field ground motions are significantly larger than those of the near-field ground motion. However, in the way of scaling PGV, the difference between two types of earthquake records is minor. The structural top displacements are more effected by the far-field ground motions in comparison with those of the near-field ground motion under the two scaling methods. It is also found that the two structural responses, the top displacement and the seismic base shear coefficient in the way of scaling PGV are larger than those of scaling PGA, which indicates that the long-period structures is more sensitive to the velocity spectrum than the acceleration spectrum. As a result, the time history analysis is suggested to be used as the PGV amplitude modulation manner for long-period structures.
