Abstract

The performance of high-rise steel moment frame buildings constructed in the 1970's is examined by using the E-Defense shake-table facility. Typical design and detailing in the 1970's are incorporated in a four-story, steel moment frame specimen. The specimen is subjected to a series of response deformations representing a high-rise building. Long-period ground motions impose a substantial number of inelastic deformations, which eventually cause fracture in the beam-to-column connections.
