E. the normalized median intensity of earthquake excitation at collapse, is subsequently determined from, compare with Eq. 4 Example In an example problem the application of ESDOF systems and collapse spectra for the prediction of the global collapse capacity of multi-story frame structures is illustrated. For this purpose the generic 15-story frame structure of Sect. 2 is utilized. Recall that the fundamental period of this structure is T1 D 3:0 s, and the elastic stability coefficient, the inelastic stability coefficient and the hardening ratio, respectively, are: Âe D 0:061; Âi D 0:085; ˛S D 0:040.
