Should accidental eccentricity be eliminated from Eurocode 8?
S.A. Anagnostopoulos, M.T. Kyrkos, A. Papalymperi and E. Plevri

    Modern codes for earthquake resistant building design require consideration of the so-called accidental design eccentricity, to account for torsional response caused by several factors not explicitly considered in design. This provision requires that the mass centres in the building floor be moved a certain percentage of the building
Key Words
    accidental eccentricity; torsion; multistory steel buildings; inelastic response; plastic hinge model
