Abstract

To contribute to the available information on the inelastic performance of irregular structures, the investigation of four building characteristics on it seismic response was initiated. These characteristics are column height, beam-to-column capacity, stiffness distribution in elevation and set-backs and non-symmetric elevation configuration. The parametric study presented in the paper is intended to be more indicative than comprehensive, since simplifications in the modeling of structures were necessary.

Effect of Building Configuration on Seismic Response Parameters

St. Louis, Missouri

To contribute to the available information on the inelastic performance of irregular structures, the investigation of four building characteristics on it seismic response was initiated. These characteristics are column height, beam-to-column capacity, stiffness distribution in elevation and set-backs and non-symmetric elevation configuration. The parametric study presented in the paper is intended to be more indicative than comprehensive, since simplifications in the modeling of structures were necessary.
