Seismic Performance Evaluation for Steel Reinforced Concrete Frame Structures
The randomness and uncertainty of seismic demand and structural capacity are considered in demand-capacity factor method (DCFM) which could give confidence level of different performance objectives. Evaluation steps of investigating seismic performance of steel reinforced concrete structures with DCFM are put forward, and factors in calculation formula are modified based on stress characteristics of SRC structures. A regular steel reinforced concrete frame structure is analyzed and the reliability level satisfying four seismic fortification targets are calculated. The evaluation results of static and dynamic nonlinear analysis are compared which indicates that the SRC frame has better seismic performance and incremental dynamic analysis could reflect more dynamic characteristics of structures than pushover method.
