Abstract

This paper proposes a method to predict the response of high-rise buildings with dampers subjected to multi-segment earthquake by the single earthquakes. Time-history analyses of high-rise building models with dampers are carried-out for multi-segment earthquake and single earthquake responses. By these analyses, a method is proposed to predict the maximum response and cumulative damage from multi-segment earthquake by using single earthquakes. The proposed prediction method is verified by comparing its results with those of seismic response analysis.
