earthquake protective design philosophical issues
Earthquake Protective Design Philosophical Issues
  • High probability of “Failure”
  • “Failure” redefined to permit behavior (yielding) that would be considered failure under other loads.
  • High Uncertainty
  • Importance of Details

“In dealing with earthquakes we must contend with appreciable probabilities that failure will occur in the near future. Otherwise, all the wealth of the world would prove insufficient… We must also face uncertainty on a large scale… In a way, earthquake engineering is a cartoon… Earthquakes systematically bring out the mistakes made in design and construction, even the minutest mistakes.” Newmark & Rosenblueth

hazard levels
Hazard Levels

Performance Levels

  • Incipient Collapse
  • Life Safety
  • Immediate Reoccupancy
  • Fully Operational
  • Occasional
    • 50% in 50 years
  • Rare
    • 10% in 50 years
  • Very Rare
    • 5% in 50 years
  • Max Considered
    • 2% in 50 years
design objective defined
Design Objective Defined
  • A specific performance level given a specific earthquake hazard level
  • Stated basis of current codes:
    • Life safety (+some damage control) at 10% in 50 year event (nominally)
purpose of the provisions
Purpose of the Provisions

FEMA 302 Section 1.1

“The design earthquake ground motion levels specified herein could result in both structural and nonstructural damage. For most structures designed and constructed according to these Provisions, structural damage from the design earthquake ground motion would be repairable although perhaps not economically so. For essential facilities, it is expected that the damage from the design earthquake ground motion would not be so severe as to preclude continued occupancy and function of the facility.”

“For ground motions larger than the design levels, the intent of these Provisions is that there be a low likelihood of structural collapse”

elastic vs inelastic response
Elastic vs. Inelastic Response
  • The red line shows the force and displacement that would be reached if the structure responded elastically.
  • The green line shows the actual force vs. displacement response of the structure
  • The pink line indicates the minimum strength required to hold everything together during inelastic behavior
  • The blue line is the force level that we design for.
  • We rely on the ductility of the system to prevent collapse.

From 1997 NEHRP Provisions

vertical distribution of base shear
Vertical Distribution of Base Shear

See ASCE 7-05 12.8.3

  • For short period buildings the vertical distribution follows generally follows the first mode of vibration in which the force increases linearly with height for evenly distributed mass.
  • For long period buildings the force is shifted upwards to account for the whipping action associated with increased flexibility
story force f x
Story Force, Fx

Fx = CvxV

Where Cvx = Vertical Distribution Factor

Wx = Weight at level x

hx = elevation of level x above the base

k = exponent related to structure period

When T < 0.5 s, k =1, When T > 2.5 s, k =2,

Linearly interpolate when 0.5 < T < 2.5 s

story shear v x
Story Shear, Vx
  • Story shear, Vx, is the shear force at a given story level
  • Vx is the sum of all the forces above that level.
horizontal distribution
Horizontal Distribution

See ASCE 7-05 12.8.4

  • Being an inertial force, the Story Force, Fx, is distributed in accordance with the distribution of the mass at each level.
  • The Story Shear, Vx, is distributed to the vertical lateral force resisting elements based on the relative lateral stiffnesses of the vertical resisting elements and the diaphragm.

See ASCE 7-05

  • The analysis must take into account any torsional effects resulting from the location of the masses relative to the centers of resistance.
  • In addition to the predicted torsion, accidental torsion must be applied for structures with rigid diaphragms by assuming the center of mass at each level is moved from its actual location a distance equal to 5% the building dimension perpendicular to the direction of motion.
  • Buildings of Seismic Design Categories C, D, E, and F with torsional irregularities are to have torsional moments magnified.

See ASCE 7-05 12.8.5

  • The effects of overturning must be considered.
  • The overturning moment at any level is the sum of the moments at that level created by the Story Forces at each level above it.
