Abstract

According to the research conducted, the asymmetric multi-storey buildings are complex and suffer from severe damage caused by increased torsional response. This paper addresses the behavior assessment of setback building with irregularity in the plan under severe seismic event such as Kobe earthquake. Using three-dimensional model, the structure is subjected to seismic waves in the three directions through ground accelerations. Nonlinear dynamic procedures have been used by means time-history analysis method. The mechanical model describes physical nonlinear behavior with damage and plasticity showing the regions of cracking propagation, mainly the columns-beams connections and the whole column as well, corroborating the weak column and strong beam concept. The slabs did not present significant failures despite indicating damage regions on the borders of the first floors.
