Methods for the Design of Building Reinforcement against Earthquake based on Displacement

Seminar of the Greek Earthquake Planning and Protection Organization (EPPO)
Athens, April 2001

• Non-linear analysis of the building as a space frame by the method of plastic hinges

• A bi-linear approximation to the force-displacement curve of the building

• Simulation of multi- with single- degree of freedom elastoplastic system – factors ao , Co

• Calculation of maximum displacement through time integration of a real earthquake accelerogram (A. Method)

• Calculation of maximum displacement through Response Spectrum in Axes of displacements – eigenperiods with a coefficient C1 (B. Method)

• Performance controls: Plastic rotations, Shear failures, shear deformation of infill walls, possible collapse …
