Title:Studies on the Seismic Design of Low-Rise Steel Buildings
Author(s):Montgomery, C.J.; Hall, W.J.
Subject(s):Seismic Design
earthquake motions
Nonlinear dynamic analysis
Shear
Abstract:The behavior of low-rise steel shear buildings, moment frame buildings, and X-braced buildings, subjected to earthquake base motion, is studied using inelastic time-history analysis. Two simpler methods of analysis, the modal method and the quasi-static building code approach, are evaluated for practical use in calculating. response quantities. The application of the results of these studies to the practical design of buildings is discussed.
