Title: Determination of the critical angle of seismic incidence in standardised procedures for the seismic safety assessment of 3D RC buildings
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: This study proposes an analytical expression for the straightforward determination ofthe angle of seismic incidence that leads to the maximum structural demand ofreinforced concrete buildings when subjected to Lateral Force Analysis. The demandparameter under consideration is the maximum total displacement of single storey andisotropic multi-storey buildings, while the maximum interstorey drift may also beemployed. The proposed expression is defined based on the geometrical andmechanical characteristics of the structure. The characteristics of the seismic loadingrepresented by the elastic response spectrum are also integrated into the formulationof the expression.
