Abstract

Estimation method of requisite strength to control deformation of RC structure under earthquake motion and investigation of the accuracy T. Mukai, H. Kinugasa, S. Nomura Faculty of Science and Engineering Department of Architecture, Science University of Tokyo, Japan Abstract Recently, in earthquake resistant design, there is a tendency to evaluate a building by the performance. One method of the evaluation is to estimate maximum response deformation for a building modeled by single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system. In our previous studies [1], it was confirmed that EIV, which is defined as the intensity of energy input in stationary response, is almost equal to (AEmax/Te). (AEmax/Te) is the intensity of energy input in earthquake response. In this paper, then, energy absorption model (ES) of building is determined. The Requisite Strength (Py) to control deformation is calculated by solving the relationship, ES=ED (Total Input Energy). In order to calc
