Ductility and Ductility Factors
Energy Dissipation
Ductility is the ability of the system to undergo plastic deformation. The
structural system deforms before collapse without a substantial loss of
strength but with a significant energy dissipation.
The system can be designed with smaller restoring forces, exploiting
its ability to undergo plastic deformation.
Ductility factor (u/y): Ratio of the
ultimate deformation at failure u to the
yield deformation y.
* u is defined for design purposes as the
deformation for which the material or
the
structural
element
loses
predefined percentage of its maximum
strength.

The q factor corresponds to the reduction in the level of seismic
forces due to nonlinear behaviour as compared with the expected
elastic force levels.

Design spectrum for linear analysis
Design spectrum for linear analysis (Eurocode 8)
The capacity of structural systems to resist seismic actions
in the nonlinear range permits their design for resistance
to seismic forces smaller than those corresponding to a
linear elastic response.
For the horizontal components of the seismic action the design spectrum, Sd(T),
shall be defined by the following expressions:
ag is the design ground acceleration on
type A ground (ag = I.agR);
I=importance factor
TB is the lower limit of the period of the
constant spectral acceleration branch;
TC is the upper limit of the period of the
constant spectral acceleration branch;
TD is the value defining the beginning of
the constant displacement response
range
of the spectrum;
S is the soil factor
Sd(T) is the design spectrum;
q is the behaviour factor;
is the lower bound factor for the
horizontal design spectrum,
10
recommended =0,2
The energy dissipation capacity of the structure is taken
into account mainly through the ductile behavior of its
elements by performing a linear analysis based on a reduced
response spectrum, called design spectrum. This reduction is
accomplished by introducing the behavior factor q.
Importance Classes (Eurocode 8)
Behaviour Factor (Eurocode 8)
The upper limit value of the behavior factor q, introduced to account
for energy dissipation capacity, shall be derived for each design
direction as follows: q = qokw 1,5
Where qo is the basic value of the behavior factor, dependent on the type
of the structural system and on its regularity in elevation;
kw is the factor reflecting the prevailing failure mode in structural systems
with walls: ku = (1 + ao ) / 3 1 and 0,5 ao = Pr evailing wall aspect ratio = hwi / l wi
Low Ductility Class (DCL): Seismic design for low ductility , following
EC2 without any additional requirements other than those of 5.3.2, is
recomended only for low seismicity cases (see 3.2.1(4)).

Behaviour Factor (Eurocode 8)
au/a1 in behaviour factor of buildings designed for ductility:
due to system redundancy & overstrenght
A behaviour factor q of up to 1,5 may be used in deriving the seismic
actions, regardless of the structural system and the regularity in elevation.
Medium (DCM) and High Ductility Class (DCH):
For buildings which are not regular in elevation, the value of qo should be
reduced by 20%
13
Structural Regularity (Eurocode 8)
Structural Regularity (Eurocode 8)
For seismic design, building structures in all modern codes are
separated in two categories: a) regular buildings
b) nonregular buildings
This distinction has implications for the following aspects of the seismic
design:
the structural model, which can be either a simplified planar model or
a spatial model ;
the method of analysis, which can be either a simplified response
spectrum analysis (lateral force procedure) or a modal one;
the value of the behavior factor q, which shall be decreased for
buildings nonregular in elevation

. .
Criteria for Regularity in Elevation (Eurocode 8)
STRUCTURE OF EN19981:2004
All lateral load resisting systems, such as cores, structural walls, or
frames, shall run without interruption from their foundations to the top
of the building or, if setbacks at different heights are present, to the
top of the relevant zone of the building.
Both the lateral stiffness and the mass of the individual storeys shall
remain constant or reduce gradually, without abrupt changes, from the
base to the top of a particular building.
When setbacks are present, special additional provisions apply.

Specific requirements in detailing (e.g. confining actions by
well anchored stirrups)

pounding from adjacent structures

Secondary Seismic Members
A limited number of structural members may be
designated as secondary seismic members. The strength
and stiffness of these elements against seismic actions
shall be neglected.
The total contribution to lateral stiffness of all
secondary seismic members should not exceed 15% of
that of all primary seismic members.
Such elements shall be designed and detailed to
maintain their capacity to support the gravity loads
present in the seismic design situation, when subjected
to the maximum deformations under the seismic design
situation. Maximum deformations shall account for P.
