3 MotivationIn the context of Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering, collapse constitutes a limit state associated with complete loss of a building and its content.Understanding collapse is a fundamental objective in seismic safety since this failure mode is associated with loss of lives.Therefore, there is a need for reliable prediction of the various collapse mechanisms of buildings subjected to earthquakes.Dimitrios G. LignosQuake Summit, San Francisco 2010
4 MotivationIn the case of steel braced frames, one challenge for reliable collapse assessment is to accurately model the post-buckling behavior and fracture of steel braces as parts of a braced frame.Another challenge is to consider other important deterioration modes associated with plastic hinging in steel components that are part of local story mechanisms that develop after the steel braces fracture This could be an issue for steel braced frames designed in moderate or high seismicity regions.The emphasis is on a common collapse mode associated with sidesway instability in which P-Delta effects accelerated by cyclic deterioration in strength and stiffness of structural components fully offset the first order story shear resistance of a steel braced frame and dynamic instability occurs.Dimitrios G.

22 Case Study #2: Quasi-Static Analysis-Global Response
23 Case Study #2: Incremental Dynamic Analysis Based on 2% Rayleigh Damping (damping matrix proportional to initial stiffness)Collapse Capacities seem a bit high Indicates that a closer look of the individual responses in terms of base shear hysteretic response is needed and not just story drift ratios.

27 Dynamic Analysis: Base Shear-SDR1 Due to Artificial DampingArtificial damping is generated in the lower modes with the effective damping increasing to several hundred percent.Following the change in state of steel braces after fracture occurs, large viscous damping forces are generated. This forces are the product of the post-event deformational velocities multiplied by the initial stiffness and by the stiffness proportional coefficient.

33 Summary and Observations 1. Modeling of Post-Buckling Behavior and Fracture Initiation of Steel Braces is Critical for Evaluation of Seismic Redundancy of Steel Braced Frames.Proposed steel brace fracture modeling for different types of steel braces is based on calibration studies from 295 tests.2. For collapse simulations of sidesway instability, modeling of component deterioration of other structural components is also critical (Beams and Columns)3. Non-simulated collapse criteria could be “dangerous”. Story drift in conjunction with base shear of the system needs to be considered.4. Modeling of damping can substantially overestimate the collapse capacity of steel braced frames For Rayleigh Damping, damping matrix proportional to current stiffness should be considered.
