Performance Check of Structures
 Purpose

How will a structure perform when subjected to
a given level of earthquake?

– Definition of structural performance
– Definition of earthquake level
– Determination of performance level

Performance Check of Structures

 Process
Recently released guidelines for Seismic
Rehabilitation of Buildings:
– ATC-40
– FEMA 273 (ATC-33)

Performance Limits

Expected Performance Point
for given Earthquake
Goal is to predict peak response of building
and components for a given earthquake
Why Do Pushover Analysis?
 Design Earthquakes cause nonlinear
behavior
 Better understand building behavior
- Identify weak elements
- Realistic prediction of element demands
 Less conservative acceptance criteria can be
used with consequences understood

Steps in Performance Check
 Construct Pushover curve
 Select earthquake level(s) to check
 Select performance level(s) to check
 Select acceptance criteria for each
performance level
 Verify acceptance
Capacity Spectrum Method (ATC-40)
Displacement Coefficient Method (FEMA 273)

Constructing Pushover Curve
 Define Structural Model
Elements (components)
Strength - deformation properties

 Select Control Displacements or Drifts
 Perform Pushover Analysis
