Effect of Seismic Loading Patterns on Height-Wise Distribution of Drift, Hysteretic Energy and Damage in Reinforced Concrete Buildings

Abstract:
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of the two common lateral loading patterns named Equivalent Static (ES) and Spectral Dynamic (SD) on height-wise distribution of drift, hysteretic energy and damage subjected to severe earthquakes by considering four reinforced concrete buildings. The results indicate that in strong ground motions, none of the lateral loading patterns will lead to uniform distribution of drift, hysteretic energy and damage and an intense concentration of the values of these parameters can be observed in one or two stories especially in equivalent static method. This will consequently hinder the serviceability of the maximum capacity of structures.
