Correlation of ground motion duration with its intensity metrics: A simulation based approach

There are different kinds of intensity measures to characterize the main properties of the earthquake records. This paper proposes a simulation-based approach to compute correlation coefficients of

A new region-specific empirical model for prediction of ground motion significant duration in Turkey

Ground motion amplitude, frequency content, and duration are commonly identified as the main features of seismic waves affecting structural demand. Among these parameters, earthquake duration can

A probabilistic strong floor motion duration model for seismic performance assessment of non‐structural building elements

Non‐structural elements (NSEs) are not designed to be part of the structural load‐bearing system of a building but are subjected to the same dynamic environment as the supporting structure during an

Performance-based optimal distribution of viscous dampers in ‎structure using hysteretic energy compatible endurance time excitations

: Performance-based optimization of energy dissipation devices in structures necessitates massive and repetitive dynamic analyses. In the endurance time method known as a rather fast dynamic analysis

Application of endurance time method in damage assessment of concrete moment frames

The accuracy of this method for estimating damage in structures was evaluated by considering inter story Drift, Park-Ang, and Bozorgnia-Bertero models as samples of damage indices and it was observed that the nonlinear dynamic response of structures and damage indices can be estimated by the ET method with reasonable accuracy.

Application of Endurance Time method in evaluation of seismic performance of a typical sandwich panel building

This study deals with the seismic performance evaluation of a typical five-story sandwich panel building with load-bearing wall as the only lateral force-resisting structural elements. For this

Estimating the duration effects in structural responses by a new energy-cycle based parameter

Strong-motion duration and number of cycles of motion are the well-known parameters with which earthquake engineers currently use to take into account the influence of motion duration for the dynamic

Investigation Correlations between Strong-motion Duration and Structural Damage

A number of studies have been conducted on the investigation of the effects of the strong-motion duration on structural damage. However the conclusions from these studies are very contradictory. Some

Duration effect of spectrally matched ground motion records on collapse resistance capacity evaluation of RC frame structures

As one of the most important characteristics of strong ground motion, duration is intuitively expected to influence the seismic responses of structures. Up to now, the prescriptive provisions on

Correlation of Significant Duration with Amplitude and Cumulative Intensity Measures and Its Use in Ground Motion Selection

This manuscript examines, and develops parametric equations for, the correlation of significant duration with several amplitude- and cumulative-based ground motion intensity measures. The
