Abstract:
This guide provides information regarding nonlinear modeling of components in special moment frame and structural wall systems resisting earthquake loads. The reported modeling parameters provide a modeling option for licensed design professionals (LDPs) performing nonlinear analysis for performance-based seismic design of reinforced concrete building structures designed and detailed in accordance with ACI 318.
