Research on Quantified Performance Index for Steel Reinforced Concrete Frame Structures
The interstory drift of frame structures is caused by beams, columns and joints. The calculation formula of storey yield drift for reinforced concrete frame structures is obtained by adding above three kind of deformation, and the comparative analysis show that theoretical results have good consistency with experimental data. The expression formula of storey yield drift angle for steel reinforced concrete (SRC) frame structures are analyzed by using the same hypothesis and methods, and quantified performance index for SRC frames having a certain guarantee value are proposed according to relationship of four seismic performance levels. The conclusion obtained provide basic information for performance-based seismic design of SRC frame structures.
