Abstract

In moment resisting frame structures special detailing rules are applied to critical regions of primary columns and beams to ensure adequate curvature ductility. This is necessary for dissipating earthquake energy through hysteretical behavior of critical regions where inelastic flexural excursions occur. In this paper codal detailing rules for designing longitudinal and transverse reinforcement of primary elements as function of curvature ductility are assessed. Four seismic codes are considered: Italian code, New Zealand code, Eurocode 8 and American code. Non-linear monotonic moment-curvature analyses are performed on some sections of columns and beams detailed in according to the considered codal provisions. In the analyses the confinement effects within the concrete core have been taken into account as well. The paper concludes comparing the measured curvature ductility of the studied sections with the expected one by the codal pro- visions within the critical regions.
