Title:A Study of the Resistance of Model Frames to Dynamic Lateral Load
Author(s):Mayerjak, R.J.
Contributor(s):Newmark, N.M.
Subject(s):dynamic loading
Load deflection
Abstract:The large deflection resistance (to nearly 30 times the elastic limit deflection) of model frames subjected to dynamically applied lateral loads is studied as a function of deflection and time. Static and dynamic tests were made to provide a basis for the comparison of the dynamic with the static resistance. Theoretical resistance functions were estimated and found to be in good agreement with the resistance functions determined from the observed experimental data. Analytical applications of the information to full sized structures is made.
