This paper provides a simplified method to define local seismic damage for reinforced concrete frames considering the horizontal seismic component. The proposed method utilises static pushover analysis to evaluate the maximum and residual inter-storey drift limits for each storey. These limits are predicted for five frames and compared to experimental and analytical results by other researchers. Further validation of the method is achieved by conducting incremental dynamic analyses for a… CONTINUE READING
