Abstract

The global ductility parameter (μG), commonly used to represent the capacity of a structure to dissipate energy, and the associated ductility reduction factor (Rμ), are estimated for steel buildings with perimeter moment resisting frames (PMRF), which are modeled as 2D and 3D complex MDOF systems. Results indicate that the μG value of 4, commonly assumed for moment resisting steel frames, cannot be justified. A value of 3 is more reasonable. The values of μG and Rμ may be quite different for 2D and 3D structural representations or for local and global response parameters, showing the limitation of the commonly used Equivalent Lateral Force Procedure (ELFP). Thus, the ductility and ductility reduction factors obtained from simplified structural representation must be taken with caution.
