A Damage Function Using Structural Response Measurementsby Jerry E. Stephens, Purdue Univ, West Lafayette, IN, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Abstract: A new damage function is proposed that expresses seismic damage in terms of the range and number of cycles of plastic deflection experienced by a structure. This and other damage functions are evaluated for several reinforced concrete structures using force-deformation information obtained from response measurements.
