Development of Inelastic Reduction Factors to Provide an Elastic Design Procedureby Gary C. Hart, Univ of California, United States,

Part of: Seismic Engineering: Research and Practice
Abstract: R factor values can only be rationally selected when they are based on in part nonlinear inelastic dynamic analyses of building system types. However, it is informative to discuss the basic design methodology in terms of a pseudo dynamic approach and a simple masonry shear wall structure. This paper presents such a discussion, which relates to work in progress as part of an Applied Technology Council research study to evaluate R factors.
