Pushover Analysis Procedure using SAP2000

PART 2 PUSHOVER EXAMPLE

Pushover Analysis in SAP2000:

Steps Sequence

 1. Create the model. 2. Define frame hinges properties and assign them to the frame elements. 3. Define the parameters to calculate the demand for each performance level (f.e.: acceleration response spectra, ATC-40, FEMA; MRSA). 4. Define the load patterns which are needed for pushover: gravity loads and any other load acting on the structure before lateral seismic loading. 5. Define the Non-Linear Static load cases and the Modal load case to be used for pushover analysis. 6. Run the Pushover load cases and check the results (Pushover curve). 7. Determine the target displacement by an appropriate method (ATC- 40, FEMA, other). 8. Evaluate the number and state of plastic hinges in the structure, and then check the maximum strains for the most critical hinge. 9. Change structural configuration (additional piles, modified pile layout)

if needed and repeat the process.

MG thk = 0.20 m

MG γ = 12.75 KN/m 3

Distrib. Load = γ (π/4) [(Dp + 2*thk) 2 - Dp 2 ] = 13 KN/m Pile diameter Dp = 1.42 m

Water γ = 9.81 KN/m 3

Distrib. Load = 2*γ*(π/4)*Dp 2 = 31 KN/m

Pile Cross-Section Geometry Nonlinear material definition  Pile Moment-Curvature Analysis Three levels of axial load: P1 = -10000 KN (max compression), P2 = -1700 KN (DEAD load), P3 = 5000 (max tension).

φp = φu – φY = 0.225

The same procedure should be repeated for the other two levels of axial force!

Calculating the SF of the hinge PILE-ST52 To define the Moment-Curvature Curve of hinge PILE-ST52, it is

required to calculate the yielding curvature (SF) used by the program:

M-Phi curve definition for PILE-ST52 Pile Hinge Definition 9

M-Phi curve definition for PILE-ST52 From bilinear M-Phi:

Mp/Mne = 1.12 0.20 Mp/Mne = 0.22

φp = 0.225

SF = 3.344E-3

φp / SF = 67

Notice that only plastic curvatures over SF have to be specified in the right column.

In the left column the Mp/Mne (obtained from M-Phi bilinear diagram) is assigned

to point C and a 20% of that value to point D. Due to numerical stability it is highly recommendable that line CD has a negative slope (not vertical) and line DE a positive slope (not horizontal).

Pile Hinge Definition 10

Interaction surface definition for PILE-ST52  Automatically defined for each generated hinge.

It is only used to determine the exact yielding moment (Mne2, Mne3)

and the angle of bending (tg α= Mne3 / Mne2).

Beam Hinge Definition

1. The described procedure has to be repeated for the definition of hinges in the cap beam and longitudinal beam.

2. Due to the lower importance of beam hinges, they can be defined faster by means of the “Automatic Hinges” if the conditions for type of material and cross-section

geometry are met (See Part 1 of this guide).

3. It is very likely that in the hinge length for beams is not the same as the total length of the frame element but a fraction. This should be taken into account when defining

the hinge length (Lp) relative to the frame element

length. This is an important parameter for the correct determination of the SF (yield curvature) from the yield

rotation automatically calculated by the program.

Hinge Definition: Final Recommendations

 1. Sudden strength loss is not recommended (segment C-D) 2. Reduce the mesh size helps when using sudden strength loss. 3. It is possible to define hinges along the whole frame length (e.g.: 10 hinges spaced every tenth part of the total length). 4. Repeat the described process for all the combinations of bending angles and axial loads. 5. For bi-axial or asymmetrical cross-sections, define M-Phi for intermediate bending angles (e.g.: 45°). 6. Once the plastic hinge definition is concluded (SF calulated by the program determined), the property has

to be newly assigned to all the corresponding frames.

Parameters for ATC-40 Capacity-Spectrum

Method Definition of response spectrum function (without scaling) for

each demand level (OLE-D1, CLE-

D2, DE-D3) Parameters for ATC-40 Capacity-Spectrum

Method  Constitutes the starting point of pushover analysis.

Non-linear geometric P-Delta analysis is performed for all the The results of MODAL load case are used in the definition of the ATC-40

capacity spectrum (ADRS format) and the equivalent period required to

obtain the performance point (target displacement).

Besides, the mode shapes are used in the definition of the MODE load pattern for pushover analysis.

1. More critical pushover load pattern. Preferred

2. Modal analysis has to be performed first.
