Abstract: To further understand displacement based seismic theory of building structures, the seismic performance evaluation using capacity spectrum method related to damping is carried out for the reinforced concrete frame-shear wall model structure of a thermal power main plant. By comparing with time-history analysis results, it can be seen that some problems such as equivalence of multi-degree-of-freedom system and value of equivalent damping ratio in capacity spectrum method remains to be further investigated. Force and displacement response of structures and plastic hinges position of all members could be obtained through nonlinear push-over analysis after determining the top displacement; weak parts and damage pattern of structures could also be easily found out by this method. At last, research shows that dynamic time-history analysis can be replaced by static push-over analysis, which is regarded as an exact seismic performance evaluation method by contrast.

Abstract: Incremental dynamic analysis (IDA) is an effective method for evaluation of seismic performance of building structures. Based on the principle and characteristics of IDA method, evaluation steps of investigating deformation and ductility of steel reinforced concrete (SRC) structures under increasing earthquake loading are put forward. Limit states of different performance levels for structures are connected with IDA curve slope whose decrease amplitude is determined according to current test data. Based on the proposed constitutive model of steel and concrete, a regular steel reinforced concrete frame structure is analyzed with IDA method, and distribution of story drift angle and ductility for four performance levels are investigated. The calculation results show that the SRC frame has better seismic performance when subjected to random earthquake waves.
