Seismic Torsional Sensitivity & Ductility limits

Seismic Torsional Sensitivity & Ductility limits

RE: Seismic Torsional Sensitivity & Ductility limits

I believe that Eurocode 8 does this. Refer Section 5.2.2.

RE: Seismic Torsional Sensitivity & Ductility limits

NZS1170.5 also has some provisions related to making sure you have sufficient lines of major seismic resistance or an orthogonal structural system to prevent unconstrained torsional effects (i.e. one side of the structure yields and the other doesn't and it is free to twist without anything to stop this behaviour).


RE: Seismic Torsional Sensitivity & Ductility limits

Hi Agent,

I'd appreciate you're thoughts on my original thread too please if you don't mind?
