Accounting for Ground Motion Duration and Spectral Shape in Structural Design and Assessment
The equivalent lateral force (ELF) procedure is the most widely used structural design procedure in practice today This procedure considers only the Sa(T1) of the anticipated ground motions, while ignoring their durations and response spectral shapes Recent studies by the authors and others have, however, demonstrated that both duration and spectral shape significantly influence structural collapse capacity. Develop a framework to characterise the influence of duration and spectral shape on structural collapse risk. Propose a method to account for the e˙ects of duration and spectral shape in the ELF structural design procedure.
