Performance based design:
- Generation of the capacity
curve by using push over
analysis
Capacity Demand Performance
- Estimation of the maximum
expected response of the
building during the ground
motion

- Determination of the
Performance point
- Something like a check!

- Verifies the structural
components beyond the
acceptable limits!
Capacity
Principles
- similar in all guidelines

- structural capacity depends on:

- strength and deformation capacities of each individual elements

- the capacity curve approximates how structures behave after exceeding their
elastic limit

Confirming:
- closed hoops are spaced at smaller d/3
- strength provided by the stirrups is at least three-fourths of the design shear

Is it effective to assign the nonlinear hinges to the ends of frame elements?
Yes, it is. Because of the inertial force distribution! But,

6. Calculation of base shear vs. roof displacement relationship (base shear = sum
of shear forces of all columns at ground floor level and roof displacement =
cumulated displacement from ground floor to roof)
Step by step:

Demand
Principles
- ground motions produce complex horizontal displacement patterns in structures
that may vary in time judged impractical

- easier and more direct is to use a set of lateral displacements as a design
condition

- displacement demand is an estimate of the maximum expected response

- a displacement along the capacity curve that is consistent with the seismic
demand

Conclusion
Bauhaus-University
Weimar
- Performance based design:

- calculation of the structural capacity
- determination of the performance point
- checking of the structural behavior under defined seismic action
with your setting limits (e.g Life safety)


- Advantage of this method:

- only one time calculation of the capacity
- possibility to compare the capacity with different seismic excitations
