Seismic Vulnerability Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Frames with Mild Steel Dampers
This study focus on derivation of such fragility curves using conventional old reinforced concrete (RC) frames with Mild Steel Damper (MSD) of flexural energy dissipation braces. A set of stochastic earthquake waves compatible with the response spectrum of China seismic code selected to represent the variability in ground motion. Dynamic inelastic time history analysis was used to analyze the random sample of structures. Weak position was be pointed out, The result reveal that excellent reduction effect for structure of MSD is favorable and obvious under major earthquake.
