ATC-114 Next-Generation Hysteretic Relationships for Performance-based Modeling and Analysis

Nonlinear analysis has become an increasingly useful and important tool for evaluation, upgrade and design of structures for seismic resistance. However, despite steady improvements in analysis capability, most practice remains anchored to guidelines developed more than 20 years ago. Under its ATC- 114 project, the Applied Technology Council is developing updated hysteretic envelope models for use in seismic analysis of new and existing buildings. The intent of this project is to support the development of updated building code criteria contained in such standards as ASCE 7 and ASCE 41. Project support is provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
