## Earthquake Response of Linear System

In this lecture, we will study the earthquake response of linear
SDOF systems subjected to earthquake excitations.
By definition, linear systems are elastic systems.
They are also referred to as linearly elastic systems to
emphasize both properties. Non-linear inelastic system
fs

## Effective Earthquake Force

Consider a single story frame with lumped mass. Let the frame at
the base displaces by an amount ug due to seismic waves. As a result
lumped mass at the top displaces by an amount ut ,such that:
t

u = u +u g

Where ug= Ground displacement. ut=Total displacement at the top end and u
= Dynamic displacement of lumped mass at the top w.r.t shifted base.
CE-409: MODULE 6 (Fall-2013)

## Effective Earthquake Force

The equation of motion for the frame subjected to the
earthquake excitation can be derived by using the
using dynamic equilibrium of forces as:

f I +f D +f S =0

## Effective Earthquake Force

Only the relative motion u between the mass and the base cause
structural deformation which produces elastic and damping forces.

## Thus for a linear system the inertial force fI is related to the

t
t
acceleration u of the mass by:

f = mu ;
I

= cu and f s = ku

## Effective Earthquake Force

By substituting the value of fI , the equation of motion become:

+ku =0
mu t +cu
or m(u g + u ) + cu + ku = 0
+ku = mu g (t)
or mu +cu
Comparing with

+ku =p(t)
mu +cu

## p(t) = p eff (t) = mu g (t)

The term on the right-hand side of the equation may be regarded as
the Effective earthquake force.

## Effective Earthquake Force

p eff ( t ) = mu g (t)

## Base moving with u g (t)

Effective earthquake force: horizontal ground motion

## Thus the ground motion can be replaced by the effective earthquake

force (indicated by the subscript eff. Since this force is
proportional to the mass, thus, by increasing the mass the structural
designer increases the effective earthquake force
CE-409: MODULE 6 (Fall-2013)

## Strong motion record

Strong earthquakes can generally be classified into three groups:
1. Practically a single shock: Acceleration, velocity, and displacement
records for one such motion are shown in figure. A motion of this type
occurs only at short distances from the epicenter, only on firm ground, and
only for shallow earthquakes.

## Strong motion record

A moderately long, extremely irregular motion : The record of the
earthquake of El Centro, California in 1940, NS component exemplifies
this type of motion. It is associated with moderate distances from the focus
and occurs only on firm ground. On such ground, almost all the major
earthquakes originating along the Circumpacific Belt are of this type.

10

## Strong motion record

A long ground motion exhibiting pronounced prevailing periods of
vibration: A portion of the accelerogram obtained during the earthquake of
1989 in Loma Prieta is shown in figure to illustrate this type. Such motions
result from the filtering of earthquakes of the preceding types through
layers of soft soil within the range of linear or almost linear soil behavior
and from the successive wave reflections at the interfaces of these layers.

Response quantities
Response is the structural system
reaction to a demand coming from
ground acceleration record

## Thus a response quantity may be structural displacement,

velocity, acceleration, internal shear, bending moment, axial force
etc.
t

## Sometime, the total acceleration, u o , of the mass would be

needed if the structure is supporting sensitive equipment and
the motion imparted to the equipment is to be determined.

Response quantities
One of the important response quantity is total lateral displacement

at the top end of structural system, o , required to provide enough
separation between adjacent buildings to prevent their pounding

## The time variation of ground displacement, from the given time

variation of ground acceleration, can be determined by using any
appropriate time stepping numerical method.
Closer the time interval, more accurate will be solution. Typically, the
time interval is chosen to be 1/100 to 1/50 of a second, requiring 1500 to
3000 ordinates to describe the round motion of above given El- Centro ,

## Approximate Periods of Vibration

Thus, structural systems with Tn=0.5sec, 1 and 2 sec may be considered
as 5, 10 and 20 story height buildings, respectively.
A building with 3 story height can be considered as Multi DOF system
with at least 3 DOFs.
To keep the discussion simple at this stage, it will be a reasonable
assumption
to
state
that
(
out of 3 natural time periods of the 3 story building) we consider only
fundamental natural time period (Tn=0.3 sec) to determine the response
quantities for the building.
Later on we will discuss how all 3 vibration modes (and the
corresponding natural time periods) are calculated and are taken into
account to find the total response of a building with DOF =3
Because the empirical period formula is based on measured response of
buildings, it should not be used to estimate the period for other types of

structure (bridges,
dams,
towers).6 (Fall-2013)

## A plot of the peak value of a response quantity as a function of the

natural vibration period Tn of the system, or a related parameter such
as circular frequency n or cyclic frequency fn, is called the response
spectrum for that quantity.
Response is the structural system reaction to a demand coming
from ground acceleration record (i.e. Accelerogram) and when the
peak response commodities such as structural
system displacement
t
( ,u o ) velocity ( u o ) and acceleration ( u o ) are plotted against the
structural system natural time period (or frequencies) will be called
spectrum
CE-409: MODULE 6 (Fall-2013)

26

## Response spectrum concept

Peak values of response quantities and shape of response
spectrum depends on the accelerogram
Each such plot is for SDOF system having a fixed damping ratio
, and several such plots for different values of are included to
cover the range of damping values encountered in actual structures.
The deformation response spectrum is a plot of uo against Tn for
fixed . A similar plot for u o is the relative velocity response
t

u
spectrum, and for o is the total acceleration response spectrum.

## Figure on next slide shows the procedure to determine the

deformation response spectrum. The spectrum is developed for
El Centro ground motions, as shown in part (a) of the figure.
The time variation of deformation induced by this ground motion
in three SDF systems is presented in part (b) of the figure

system with different Tn is determined and shown in part (c) of the

## The quantity V has the unit of velocity and is called relative

pseudo- velocity or simply pseudo-velocity. The prefix pseudo is

## Displacement Response Spectra for Different Damping

values
The higher the damping, the lower the relative displacement.
At a period of 2 sec, for example, going from zero to 5%
damping reduces the displacement amplitude by a factor of two.
While higher damping produces further decreases in displacement,
there is a diminishing return.
The % reduction in
displacement by going
from 5 to 20% damping is
much less that that for 0 to
5% damping.

## Pseudo Acceleration Response Spectra for Different

Damping Values
Damping has a similar effect on pseudo acceleration. Note,
however, that the pseudo acceleration at a (near) zero period is the
same for all damping values.
This value is always
equal to the peak ground
acceleration, 0.319g, for
the ground motion in
question. i.e. El-centro

Although both columns go through equal deformation, however, the stiffer column
carries a greater force than the flexible column. The lateral force is distributed to the
elements in proportion to their relative stiffnesses. Sometimes this basic principle , if
not recognized in building design, lead to unanticipated damage of the stiffer elements.

Design Spectrum
Response spectrum cannot be used for the design of new
structures, or the seismic safety evaluation of existing structures due
to the following reasons:
Response spectrum for a ground motion recorded during the past
is inappropriate for future design or evaluation.
The response spectrum is not smooth and jagged, specially for
lightly damped structures.
The response spectrum for different ground motions recorded in
the past at the same site are not only jagged but the peaks and valley
are not necessarily at the same periods. This can be seen from the
figure given on next slide where the response spectra for ground
motions recorded at the same site during past three earthquakes are
plotted

Design Spectrum
Due to the inappropriateness of response spectrum as stated on
previous slide, the majority of earthquake design spectra are
obtained by averaging a set of response spectra for ground motion
recorded at the site the past earthquakes.
If nothing have been recoded at the site, the design spectrum
should be based on ground motions recorded at other sites under
similar conditions such as magnitude of the earthquake, the
distance of the site from causative fault, the fault mechanism, the
geology of the travel path of seismic waves from the source to the
site, and the local soil conditions at the site.
CE-409: MODULE 6 (Fall-2013)

50

Design Spectrum
For practical applications, design spectra are presented as
smooth curves or straight lines.
Smoothing is carried , using statistical analysis, out to eliminate
the peaks and valleys in the response spectra that are not desirable
for design. For this purpose statistical analysis of response spectra is
carried out for the ensemble of ground motions.
Each ground motion, for statistical analysis is normalized (scaled
up or down) so that all ground motions have the same peak ground
acceleration, say u go ;other basis for normalization can be chosen.

51

## Construction of Design Spectrum

Researchers have developed
procedures to construct such design
spectra from ground motion
parameters. One such procedure is
illustrated in given figure.
The recommended period values
Ta = 1/33 sec, Tb = 1/8 sec, Te = 10
sec, and Tf = 33 sec, and the
amplification factors A, V , and D
for the three spectral regions (given
table on next slide), were developed
by the statistical analysis of a larger
ensemble of ground motions
recorded on firm ground (rock, soft
rock, and competent sediments).

idealized as an SDF system with weight w = 100 kips, lateral stiffness k =
