Abstract text:
The paper proposes some formulae to determine the equivalent linear parameters for spectral earthquake response of SDOF non-linear systems. The proposed formulae for the equivalent viscous damping and equivalent period are valid for the elasto-plastic hysteretic model and for earthquakes compatible with Eurocode 8 response spectra. This study is part of a research aimed to determine the equivalent linear parameters in order to predict the maximum displacement response for earthquake compatible with given response spectra, for different hysteretic models.
