In the Demand and Capacity Factor Design (DCFD) methodology, the uncertainties associated with inherent randomness and modeling uncertainty are incorporated into the hazard relationships through uncertainty factors. For example, the hazard relationship expressing the probability of exceeding a maximum interstory drift ratio (IDR) demand of S, was derived in Chapter 5, Section 5.4.3, and repeated here as, where e is a random variable representing the uncertainty due to inherent randomness in the...

These methods would be assigned a weighting factor that reflects the structural engineer's confidence in the analysis method results. If there is a high confidence in the nonlinear time history analysis method, then the best estimate of the mean building response is equal to the mean response calculated using the nonlinear time history analysis. The variation in the analysis method bias factors is represented by the standard deviation and is calculated as follows,

Considering that the bias factor may not be the same for each of the N ground motion records, it is clear that the bias factor is a random variable which represents the uncertainty associated with the use of an approximate analysis method.

In addition, random uncertainty includes the statistical uncertainty resulting from the use of a limited number of samples to determine the central value and dispersion in a building performance quantity.

Buildings that use a system of steel beam and columns, with connections capable of transferring bending moments, for the primary lateral force resisting system are called steel moment frame buildings. Steel moment frames are those frames that develop their seismic resistance through bending of beams and columns and shearing of the beam-column panel zones (ATC, 1997). Steel moment frames classified as special moment resisting frames (SMRF) by the 1997 AJSC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel...

As part of any seismic building design or evaluation procedure, the structural engineer must perform an analysis of the building, incorporating the seismic hazard at the building site, to obtain building response quantities. The building response quantities are calculated from a mathematical model of the building subjected to gravity forces and lateral earthquake forces. Building performance is deemed acceptable if these quantities are within the limits of acceptable building response. Building...
