The steady-state frequency response equations for a class of multi-degree-of-freedom yielding structures are determined using approximate analytic techniques. The yield model used is a distributed element model which gives rise to a family of curved hysteresis loops. As an example of the general formulation, a three-degree-of-freedom system is considered and characteristics such as peak response amplitude, resonant frequency shift, and effective damping are analyzed.
