Vahid Mohsenian, Saman Padashpour, Iman Hajirasouliha, Seismic reliability analysis and estimation of multilevel response modification factor for steel diagrid structural systems, Journal of Building Engineering, /, (), (). response modification factor R. Since the R-factor will affect the design forces significantly, the objective of the study is to determine its value from detailed finite element analyses, and evaluate its dependency on the ductility and bridge dominant period. For the purpose of the.

Response Modification Factor This factor is used to decrease value of linear elastic spectral response given with respect to the inelastic response in the force based seismic design procedure. Alternatively, it is termed as ratio between the required strength and structural elasticity. 4. Determine site coefficient adjustment factors (F a, F v) 5. Determine design ground motion parameters (S dS, S d1) 6. Determine seismic design category (A-F) 7. Determine importance factor 8. Select structural system and system parameters (R, C d, Ω o).

SEISMIC RESPONSE MODIFICATION FACTOR – R. Ma Ma Structural Engineering. This structural technote addresses the “R” value we show in our General Notes sheet in our drawing set – what it signifies, what the ramifications are and how we determine which value to use.

But first, a little history. Atc structural response modification factor by applied technology council, Additional Physical Format: Online version: Structural response modification factors.

Redwood City, Calif.: The Council, (OCoLC) Document Type. Response Modification Factor In the force-based seismic design procedures, the response modification factor (R) is the one used to reduce the linear elastic response spectra to the inelastic ones.

In other words, response modification factor is the ratio of strength required to maintain the structural elasticity. Hence, classification of Response Modification Factor for various structural systems is extremely important in order to do an evaluation based on demand and capacity of the structure.

The Response Modification Factor (R factor) reduces the seismic force to a design level as it is assumed that structures contain reserve strength, an extra energy Cited by: 2. From previous study it is noted that the ‘R’ factor depends on ductility factor (Rµ), strength factor (Rs), structural redundancy (RR) and damping associated with structure.

The objective of this work is to evaluate the response modification factor (R) for RC elevated water tanks supported on framing system are considered having staging.

For additional commentary regarding the Response Modification Factor, FEMA gives the following clarification: "The ratio R, is always larger then ; thus, all structures are designed for forces smaller than those the design ground motion would produce in a structure with completely linear-elastic response.

Response modification coefficient, R, for use throughout the R reduces forces to a strength level, not an allowable stress level.: b. Deflection amplification factor, C d, for use in Sections, and of ASCE c. NL = Not Limited and NP = Not Permitted.

For metric units use m for ft and use m for ft. overstrength factor of ASCE 7 – § shall be used (i.e., 0 = assumed). Load combinations are a way of considering the maximum (or minimum) forces on a structural element using principles of superposition.

The load combinations consider combined effects of.

R factor values in UBC for moment resisting frames (MRF) 20 Basic value of response factor q 0 in Eurocode 23 Values of kD represent ductility class in Eurocode 24 Values of kR reflecting structural irregularity in elevation in Eurocode 24 Comparison of R factor for EC-8, Japan and Mexico seismic codes Structural engineers practicing in regions of high seismicity have been wrestling with the complexities of designing safe structures to resist seismic activity for years beginning with the rebuilding effort following the San Francisco earthquake.

So, we have to reduce the forces acting on the structure by R Ω factor which accounts for structural over-strength and then design the structure with appropriate material properties and phi factors.

Thus, the combination of the two gives us the correct response reduction factors. Response Modification Coefficient, Ra System Overstrength Factor, Ω0 g Deflection Amplification Factor, Cd b Structural System Limitations and Building Height (ft) Limitc Seismic Design Category B C Dd Ed Fe A.

RE: Response Modification Factor slickdeals (Structural) 5 Oct 08 Response Modification factor depends on the system's ability to dissipate energy and depends greatly on ductility or inelastic behavior. Structural response modification factors by Christopher Rojahn,The Council edition, in EnglishPages: Moreover, the value of response modification factor was affected by the number of stories and number of dampers.

Considering the analytical results for different cases, the equation for determining the response modification factor for steel structures furnished by. The ATC report, Structural Response Modification Factors, was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (NCEER).(Published70 pages) This report addresses structural response modification factors (R factors), which are used to reduce the seismic forces associated with elastic response to obtain design forces.Seismic analysis is a subset of structural analysis and is the calculation of the response of a building (or nonbuilding) structure to is part of the process of structural design, earthquake engineering or structural assessment and retrofit (see structural engineering) in regions where earthquakes are prevalent.

As seen in the figure, a building has the potential to 'wave' back.Response Modification Factors, R. This approach can call into question the response of the foundation and the superstructure as a whole, which can be particularly important for buildings of significant height or complexity.
