niversity of California at Berkeley ivil and Environmental Engineering Instructor: Stephen A. Mahin Spring Semester 2006 CEE 227 -- Earthquake Resistant Design Homework Assignments Problem 13 (sort of optional) Carry out a static pushover analysis of the 3 story building that was designed using the 1994 UBC using the method suggested by FEMA 356 and described in the class. Continue the analysis until you get to a roof lateral displacement until you get to 1.5 times the roof displacement you predicted in Problem 12 (this will be the same as C 0 C 1 S d (assuming C 2 and C 3 are 1). FEMA 350 requires you to check at the target roof level, but to continue the analysis beyond this point so you know how close to the displacement capacity of the structure you are. You may use any computer program you are familiar with that does this type of analysis. a. Plot roof displacement vs. base shear. b. Convert your system to an equivalent SDOF system as described in class, and plot the lateral displacement-lateral load response of the SDOF system and tabulate the mass, stiffness, yield strength, and other relevant properties for this SDOF system. (Regardless of whether you do the actual nonlinear pushover analysis, you need to know how to do part b. Typical modeling assumptions: Use centerline-to-centerline dimensions. Do not model the panel zone region as a rigid link! Assuming a rigid panel zone is unconservative. The beam plastic hinges may be at the ends of the members. We will discuss modeling the inelastic behavior of the panel zone later You may represent plastic hinge regions by concentrated nonlinear rotational springs having the flexural capacity of the beams and columns with a modest amount of rotation hardening (perhaps 3% of the rotational stiffness of your element under imposed end moments that produce a anti-symmetric deformed shape). For this problem, you can ignore the effects of axial loads on the members. Problem 14 Using virtual work or other similar method, develop an analytic relation for the braced industrial subassemblies shown below in terms of E, L col , L girder , and A brace for ONE of the two braced subassemblages shown below between the applied lateral force Q and: a. The axial stress in the braces, and b. The interstory drift. Outline a design method where you seek to pick the area of the brace where it remains elastic and does not displace more than a set limit for a frequent event, and can achieve a specified target ductility and maximum lateral displacement for a very rare event.

In both braced frames, the period of the structure may be assumed to be in the “displacement preserved” range. The beams and columns may be assumed pin connected and axially inextensible. Buckling of the braces is not to be considered and they have equal compression and tension capacities (as if buckling-restrained braces are to be used). Based on an examination of these relations (or some sample calculations), comment in
