Riassunto analitico
Design of structures to resist earthquakes is motivating and challenging.<br>The potential for damage is significant, and ground motions are as uncertain as building responses are complex.<br>Seismic design procedures are categorized as force-based and displacement- based.<br>The distinction is made to emphasize that an earthquake can be seen as imposing forces or displacements on the structure.<br>The force-based approach has the longest tradition, perhaps because most other hazards, like gravity, wind, and snow, are treated as imposed forces.<br>As a result, the force-based approach is adopted in most building codes.<br>The focus on displacements is more recent, with growing merit in seismic design because displacements seem to be more correlated with actual damage.
