Optimal intensity measure based on spectral acceleration for P-delta vulnerable deteriorating frame structures in the collapse limit state

This study proposes an “optimal” spectral acceleration based intensity measure (IM) to assess the collapse capacity of generic moment frames vulnerable to the P-delta effect. The IM is derived from the geometric mean of the spectral pseudo-acceleration over a certain period interval. The optimized IM includes for first time a flexible lower limit for the period interval, ...
