## Satisfied bending-axial interaction requirement

Connection Design
Reduced beam sections selected
Beams and columns satisfy RBS connection
limitations (e.g. beam weight, beam flange thickness)
Calculation of moment at column face
Mf < φd*Mpe
Satisfy MRBS > Mu
Check requirement for ΣMc / ΣMpb > 1
Check panel zone strength => No doubler plates
required
1 st Floor Detail
Performance Evaluation
The structure will be evaluated according to
the Basic Safety Objective
Satisfy Life safety for BSE-1 Earthquake hazard
Satisfy Collapse Prevention for BSE-2 Earthquake
hazard

## Performance evaluation will be done using the

nonlinear static Procedure
Earthquake hazard levels
Determine the Response Spectrum for the BSE-
1 and BSE-2 Earthquake Hazards
Determine Sa for BSE-1 and BSE-2 based on the
fundamental Period of the structure (T=1.9 sec)
For BSE-2 Earthquake: Sa = 0.55
For BSE-1 Earthquake: Sa = 0.37
Obtain values of Cvx to use in the linear lateral
load distribution for the nonlinear static analysis

Acceptance Criteria
Beams (deformation controlled)
Satisfaction of acceptance criteria determined graphically at hinge
locations for target displacement
Columns: P/PCL < 0.5 for all cases => deformation
controlled
Satisfaction of acceptance criteria determined graphically at hinge
locations for target displacement
Panel zones modeled as rigid => automatic
satisfaction of acceptance criteria
The state of the plastic hinges (plastic rotation) could
not be obtained numerically from SAP v7.4.4. =>
Acceptance criteria checked graphically
The axial force of the columns at target displacement
is required in order to model the hinges at the columns
Assumed P/PCL < 0.2 => modeling parameters a,b,c constant.
Not true for edge columns at the first two floors
Iteration procedure required.
For the uniform load distribution the target
displacement is too close to the collapse displacement
Structure is redesigned to behave as a shear building:
target displacement would be more removed from the
collapse displacement
Questions ???
