Abstract:

This report presents an initial effort aimed at development of suitable algorithms for nonlinear, dynamic response of reinforced concrete frame buildings. These algorithms employ SDOF systems and are programmed in an interactive mode for use on a microcomputer. Nonlinearity is introduced through generalized hysteresis models that are based on laboratory experiments with sub-scale, multi-story reinforced concrete buildings. Recommendations for further work include verification and sensitivity studies, experimental checking of generalized hysteresis model, and extension to a two DOF model.
