PHASE I RESEARCH REPORT

CKI-08: Design Guidelines for Ductility and Drift Limits

This project was concerned with the development of approaches that can be utilized to determine the drift and ductility demands and capacities for high-rise buildings and to improve seismic design practice through the explicit incorporation of ductility and drift control in the preliminary design process.

To achieve this objective, emphasis was placed on:
(a) a review and evaluation of the state-of-the-practice in ductility and drift based earthquake resistant design,
(b) an evaluation of the damage potential of recorded ground motions,
(c) in-depth studies of the seismic performance of three high-rise reinforced concrete frame buildings, including accurate analytical modeling, nonlinear time-history analysis, assessment of predicted and recorded responses, and evaluation of detailing,
(d) a study of member detailing requirements, and
(e) the development of a conceptual design approach.
