Abstract

The performance in terms of interstorey drift ratios and failure pattern of ordinary moment resisting frames designed by performance-based plastic design () method and limit state design method have been compared in this paper. For this, different study frames were designed using the force based limit state design method and displacement-based performance-based plastic design method. The frames were designed taking ductility ratio two. Results of static pushover and time history analysis prove the superiority of the method when compared in terms of interstorey drift ratio and failure pattern. Keywords: performance-based plastic design method; limit state design method; moment resisting frames; yield mechanism; ductility factor; reduced beam section; time history analysis; interstorey drift ratio; push over analysis and hinges. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Dalal, S.P., Vasanwala, S.A. and Desai, A.K. (2015) ` designed by performance-based plastic design and limit state design', Int. J. Structural Engineering, Vol. 6, No. 3, pp.195­211. Biographical notes: Sejal P. Dalal is an Associate Professor in the Civil Engineering Department of Sardar Vallabhhbhai Patel Institute of Technology, Gujarat.
