Title: Case Study of Aseismic Design of a 16 Story Coupled Wall Structure Using Inelastic Dynamic Analysis
Author(s): Mark Fintel and S. K. Ghosh
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 171-179
Keywords: detailing; ductility; dynamic strutural analysis; earthquake resistant structures; earthquakes; high-rise buildings; plastic analysis; reinforced concrete; shear strength; shearwalls.
Abstract:Asesmic design of a 16-story building with coupled shear walls is carried out based on inelastic response history analyses under carefully selected input motions. The design approach makes it possible to predetermine the sequence of plastification, provide ductility details only where reuired, and balance the strength and ductility requirements of individul members. Efficancy, economy, and desired sructural proformance are achieved as a result.
