Evaluating The Most Common Modeling Methods Of Rayleigh Damping And The Critical Damping Ratio Limitation Approach, Tunc Deniz Uludag 2020 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Evaluating The Most Common Modeling Methods Of Rayleigh Damping And The Critical Damping Ratio Limitation Approach, Tunc Deniz Uludag

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

Performance-based design such as FEMA P-695 and ASCE 7 prescribe/limit damping ratios associated with dynamic nonlinear seismic analysis; however, the method for computing inherent damping is not prescriptive. The analyst in conjunction with the peer-review panel (FEMA P-695) or authority having jurisdiction (ASCE 7) must determine how damping is modeled. Depending upon the method, e.g., Rayleigh, simulations can result in significantly different responses even with the same assumed damping ratio. Note that over estimating damping will underestimate energy absorption by inelastic displacement, a non-conservative outcome.

FEMA P-695 non-linear time history analysis of 44 earthquakes was used for several ...
