Abstract

Based on previously designed 9 and 17 level reinforced concrete buildings of ductile frames, non-linear static analysis with increased monotonically lateral loads (Push-over) are made in order to determine collapse, and the buildings’ responses against the inelastic seismic analysis results are compared with the SCT-EW-85 record. This is designed with the Main Body (A case) and with the A Appendix (B case) conditions of the Seismic Technical Norms of the Mexico City Construction Code (RDF-04), satisfying the maximum story distortion limits of the service and collapse conditions; the buildings (offices) are in the IIIb compressible seismic zone with soil dominant period Ts = 2 seconds.
