Earthquake-Resistant Design of Steel Structures (10)

The fundamental issue: balance between ductility and stability. Ductile and non-ductile behavior of steel material, members and connections under monotonic and cyclic loading. Qualitative study of non-elastic buckling under cyclic loading.

Typology of steel structural systems carrying on horizontal forces. Design for low/medium/high ductility.

Behavior and code requirements (EC8, AISC Seismic Provisions) for the three main steel structural systems: Moment resisting frames (MRFs), concentrically braced frames (CBFs) and eccentrically braced frames (EBFs).

Steel-concrete composite structures – Composite  MRFs under seismic loading.
