It is well known that peak inter-storey drifts and peak inter-storey velocities are fundamental response quantities to assess the seismic response of a frame structure equipped with added viscous dampers. In the present work, analytical estimations, grounded on the first mode response, of the two response quantities are introduced. Then, a large parametric study is carried out to assess the effectiveness of the proposed predictions. A special attention is devoted to the peak inter-storey velocities and to their sensitivity on the higher modes contribution.

Abstract

It is well known that peak inter-storey drifts and peak inter-storey velocities are fundamental response quantities to assess the seismic response of a frame structure equipped with added viscous dampers. In the present work, analytical estimations, grounded on the first mode response, of the two response quantities are introduced. Then, a large parametric study is carried out to assess the effectiveness of the proposed predictions. A special attention is devoted to the peak inter-storey velocities and to their sensitivity on the higher modes contribution.
