In the inelastic time history analyses of structures in seismic motion, part of the seismic energy that is imparted to the structure is absorbed by the inelastic structural model, and Rayleigh damping is commonly used in practice as an additional energy dissipation source. It has been acknowledged that Rayleigh damping models lack physical consistency and(More)
Rayleigh damping forces are commonly introduced in the numerical simulations of nonlinear structures run to assess structural performance in case of an earthquake. Their purpose is to account for energy dissipative mechanisms not otherwise explicitly represented in the model. When caused by interactions between the structure and its surrounding environment,(More)
In the dynamic analysis of structural engineering systems, it is common practice to introduce damping models to reproduce experimentally observed features. These models, for instance Rayleigh damping, account for the damping sources in the system altogether and often lack physical basis. We report on an alternative path for reproducing damping coming from(More)
In this paper we develop the governing equations of the coupled damage-plasticity model, which is capable of representing the main mechanisms of inelastic behavior including irreversible plastic deformation, change of elastic response and the localized failure. We show in particular how such model should be implemented within the stress-based variational(More)
