Seismic performance evaluation for steel MRF:non linear dynamic and static analyses
B. Calderoni and Z. Rinaldi

 
Abstract
    The performance of steel MRF with rigid connections, proportioned by adopting different capacity design criteria, is evaluated in order to highlight the effectiveness of static non-linear procedure in predicting the structural seismic behavior. In the framework of the performance-based design, some considerations are made on the basis of the results obtained by both dynamic time histories and push-over analyses, particularly with reference to the damage level and the structure ability to withstand a strong earthquake.
 
Key Words
    seismic behaviour, overstrength, performance-based design, push-over analysis, time history analysis
