RE: Drift at top and rotation/curvature in plastic hinge zone

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You need to assume a plastic hinge lenght and then you can estimate both the
elastic and the inelastic drift (thinking that the plastic rotation is
concentrated in the middle of the plastic hinge is one way).  As someone
mentioned earlier, Paulay & Priestley's book is a good reference on this
subject.
