Masonry properties yp p
In the structural model, masonry spandrels may be taken into account as coupling beams between two wall elements. This assumption implies that they should regularly bonded to the adjoining walls and connected both to the floor tie beam and to the lintel below. If the structural model takes into account the coupling beams, a frame analysis may be used for the determination of the action effects on the vertical and horizontal structural elements. Spandrel type Pier type Building Type: Flexural capacity and shear resistance of masonry pier depends on the type of building as shown in the table below.

Element Local axis of masonry wall pier In-plane horizontal direction and transverse direction of the wall pier should coincide with the local z-axis and local y-axis of the element, respectively as shown in the figure below, which directly affects the resistance of the wall pier.

Target Displacement (Eurocode8: 2004)
The target displacement of a structure is determined through the transformation to an equivalent single degree of freedom system. For the detailed formula, refer to ANNEX B DETERMINATION OF THE TARGET DISPLACEMENT FOR NONLINEAR STATIC (PUSHOVER) ANALYSIS, EN 1998-1:2004. The target displacement, which is obtained from the above corresponds to the seismic demand of the above, Limit State of Significant Damage (SD). Target displacement of the Limit State of Near Collapse (NC) is taken equal to that of SD multiplied by 1.5. Target displacement of the Limit State of Damage Limitation (DL) is taken equal to that of SD divided by 2.5. Demand Roof displacement corresponding to the target displacement for the seismic action is considered. Capacity Gl b l capacity of the masonry structure i terms of roof i f h f f Global in displacement (Master node). Only applicable to Masonry material models. Step The nearest increment step to the target displacement Remark Assessment of the result in terms of the global response for the masonry structure. Only applicable to Masonry material models.

6-14 Pushover analysis result Pushover Curve #3


Global assessment (Masonry pushover)
Capacity Global capacity of the masonry structure in terms of roof displacement (Master node). Only applicable to Masonry material models. Global capacity of the Limit State of Significant Damage (SD) is taken equal to the roof displacement at which total lateral resistance (base shear) has dropped below 80% of the peak resistance of the structure, due to progressive damage and failure of l f lateral resisting elements. l i i l Global capacity of the Limit State of Damage Limitation (DL) is taken as the minimum value between a) displacement corresponding to the maximum base shear in the pushover curve and b) displacement corresponding to the story drift of 3/1000.

Remark Assessment of the result in terms of the global response for the masonry structure. Only applicable to Masonry material models. Limit State of SD: The assessment is OK if the global capacity of the Limit g p y State of SD is greater than the target displacement of the Limit State of SD and q* is less than 3. q* is the ratio between the acceleration in the structure with unlimited elastic behavior Se(T*) and in the structure with limited strength F*y / M*. q* = Se(T*)M*/F*y. Where, Se(T*) represents th elastic acceleration response spectrum at th Wh ): t the l ti l ti t t the period T* of the idealized equivalent SDOF system. F*y: The yield force of the idealized system M*:The mass of an equivalent SODF system Limit State of DL: The assessment is OK if the global capacity of the Limit State of DL is greater than the target displacement of the Limit State of DL (i e = (i.e.= Target Displacement of the Limit State of SD divided by 2.5.

Nonlinear hinge properties were defined by force components in the old version, however in the new version, they are defined by elements. For example, in order to assign axial and flexural hinge properties to one element in the old version, the user defined two different hinge properties. However, properties However in the new version only one hinge property defining the axial and flexural properties is needed version, needed. In the new version, when the user opens a model file created in the old version, the component hinge properties will be individually assigned to the corresponding elements (one component hinge property per element). So, the converted file size of the model may become larger than that of the old version. This is not the general way to define hinge properties in the new version, but it is intended to avoid errors in converting files. Refer to Assign Hinge Properties to learn how to assign hinge properties in the new version.
