Wavelet transform (WT) is a powerful method to genetated.Spectrum compatible records. In this paper, four sets of real records with the same primary conditions but different values of the nearest fault rupture surface and moment magnitude are selected. Then, based on the design spectrum the new records are generated. These records should have been corrected. Subsequently, nonlinear dynamic analysis of an RC 16-story building is carried out. In order to evaluate seismic behavior of the building through large dispersed response for each set a simple method is proposed. The results show that: PGA is not a reliable criterion for selection of proper records; selection of real records with small moment magnitude results in more unrealistic maximum force of floors; and using real records with a small nearest fault rupture surface results in relatively stronger generated recors.
