Response Spectrum Method Of Analysis
Introduction
Response spectrum method is favoured by
earthquake engineering community because of:

It provides a technique for performing an

It allows a clear understanding of the
contributions of different modes of vibration.

It offers a simplified method for finding the
design forces for structural members for
earthquake.

It is also useful for approximate evaluation
of seismic reliability of structures.

The concept of equivalent lateral forces for earth-
quake is a unique concept because it converts a
dynamic analysis partly to dynamic & partly to
static analysis for finding maximum stresses.

For seismic design, these maximum stresses are
of interest, not the time history of stress.

Equivalent lateral force for an earthquake is
defined as a set of lateral force which will
produce the same peak response as that
obtained by dynamic analysis of structures .

The equivalence is restricted to a single mode of
vibration.

A modal analysis of the structure is carried out
to obtain mode shapes, frequencies & modal
participation factors.

Using the acceleration response spectrum, an
equivalent static load is derived which will
provide the same maximum response as that
obtained in each mode of vibration.

Maximum modal responses are combined to
find total maximum response of the structure.

The response spectrum method of analysis is
developed using the following steps.
T.K. Datta
Department Of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi
Response Spectrum Method Of Analysis

The first step is the dynamic analysis while , the
second step is a static analysis.
The first two steps do not have approximations,
while the third step has some approximations.

As a result, response spectrum analysis is
called an approximate analysis; but applications
show that it provides mostly a good estimate of
peak responses.
Method is developed for single point, single
component excitation for classically damped
approximations it has been extended for multi
point-multi component excitations & for non-
classically damped systems.

Response Spectrum Method Of Analysis

Since both response spectrum & mode shape
properties are required in obtaining , it is known
as modal response spectrum analysis.

It is evident from above that both the dynamic &
static analyses are involved in the method of
analysis as mentioned before.

As the contributions of responses from different
modes constitute the total response, the total
maximum response is obtained by combining modal
quantities.

This combination is done in an approximate manner
since actual dynamic analysis is now replaced by
partly dynamic & partly static analysis.

The combination rule gives an upper bound to the
computed values of the total response for two
reasons:
It assumes that modal peak responses occur at
the same time.
It ignores the algebraic sign of the response.

Actual time history analysis shows modal peaks
occur at different times as shown in Fig. 5.1;further
time history of the displacement has peak value at
some other time.

Thus, the combination provides a conservative
estimate of response.

SRSS combination rule denotes square root of sum
of squares of modal responses

For structures with well separated frequencies, it
provides a good estimate of total peak response.

When frequencies are not well separated, some
errors are introduced due to the degree of
correlation of modal responses which is ignored.

The CQC rule called complete quadratic
combination rule takes care of this correlation.

Both SRSS & CQC rules for combining peak modal
responses are best derived by assuming
earthquake as a stochastic process.

If the ground motion is assumed as a stationary
random process, then generalized coordinate in
each mode is also a random process & there
should exist a cross correlation between
generalized coordinates.

Because of this, exists between two modal
peak responses.

Both CQC & SRSS rules provide good estimates of
peak response for wide band earthquakes with
duration much greater than the period of structure.
Because of the underlying principle of random
vibration in deriving the combination rules, the
peak response would be better termed as mean
peak response.

Moreover, the extension requires a derivation
through random vibration analysis. Therefore, it is

Cascaded analysis is popular for seismic analysis
of secondary systems (Fig 5.5).

RSA cannot be directly used for the total system

In the cascaded analysis two systems- primary

the primary becomes the input for the secondary.

In this context, floor response spectrum of the

For nonclassically damped system, RSA cannot
be directly used.

However, an approximate RSA can be performed.

C matrix for the entire system can be obtained
(using Rayleigh damping for individual systems
& then combining them without coupling terms)

matrix is obtained considering all d.o.f. &

Ignoring off diagonal terms, an approximate

Inelastic Seismic
Response of Structures
T.K. Datta
Department Of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi
Response Spectrum Method Of Analysis
Introduction
Under relatively strong earthquakes, structures
undergo inelastic deformation due to current
seismic design philosophy.

Therefore, structures should have sufficient
ductility to deform beyond the yield limit.

For understanding the ductility demand imposed
by the earthquake, a study of an SDOF
system in inelastic range is of great help.

The inelastic excursion takes place when the
restoring force in the spring exceeds or equal to
the yield limit of the spring.

1/1
T.K. Datta
Department Of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi
Response Spectrum Method Of Analysis
For this, nonlinear time history analysis of SDOF
system under earthquake is required; similarly,
nonlinear analysis of MDOF system is useful for
understanding non-linear behaviour of MDOF
system under earthquakes.

Nonlinear analysis is required for other reasons
as well such as determination of collapse state,
seismic risk analysis and so on.

Finally, for complete understanding of the
inelastic behavior of structures, concepts of
ductility and inelastic response spectrum are
required.
The above topics are discussed here.

Non linear dynamic analysis
If structure have nonlinear terms either in inertia
or in damping or in stiffness or in any form of
combination of them, then the equation of motion
becomes nonlinear.

More common nonlinearities are stiffness and
damping nonlinearities.

In stiffness non linearity, two types of non linearity
are encountered :

Bidirectional interaction assumes importance
under:
Analysis for two component earthquake
Torsionally Coupled System

For such cases, elements undergo yielding
depending upon the yield criterion used.

When bidirectional interaction of forces on
yielding is considered, yielding of a cross
section depends on two forces.

None of them individually reaches yield value;
but the section may yield.

Construction of the spectra
As , idealized inelastic design
spectrum for a particular can be constructed
from elastic design spectrum.

Inelastic spectra of many earthquakes when
smoothed compare well with that obtained as

Ductility in multi-storey frames
For an SDOF, inelastic spectrum can provide
design yield strength for a given ; maximum
displacement under earthquake is found as
For multi-storey building , it is not possible
because
It is difficult to obtain design yield strength of
all members for a uniform .
Ductility demands imposed by earthquake on
members widely differ.
Some studies on multi - storey frames
are summarized here to show how ductility
demands vary from member to member
when designed using elastic spectrum for
uniform .

Shear frames are designed following seismic
coefficient method ; is obtained using
inelastic spectrum of El centro earthquake
for a specified ductility & storey shears
are distributed as per code.

Frames are analysed assuming E-P behaviour
of columns for El centro earthquake.

The storey stiffness is determined using
seismic coefficient method by assuming
storey drifts to be equal.

Results show that

For taller frames, are larger in upper & lower
stories; decrease in middle storeys.

Deviation of storey ductility demands from the
design one increases for taller frames.

In general demand is maximum at the first
storey & could be 2-3 times the design

Study shows that increase of base shear by
some percentage tends to keep the demand
within a stipulated limit.
