Abstract:An analytical procedure to generate reinforced concrete plane frame response to reversing static loading is developed. Yield is permitted to occur and spread to crossections which are not predetermined. Response of a 3 story 2 bay frame under reversed lateral load is investigated with particular reference to locations that yield, propagation of yield, beam and column behavior and collapse. To permit the structure prescribe its locations of inelasticity rather than predetermining these regions was observed to be a significant aspect in mathematical modelling.
