One of the primary goals in tall building codes and standards is to protect life safety of inhabitants during earthquakes. Several methodologies have been proposed to achieve a proper performance of buildings. In this proposal, a recent method is applied using a series of nonlinear dynamic analyses under an appropriate suite of ground motion records. First, it is necessary to select a suite of ground motion records, which are gradually scaled from a very low to very high level. The structural model is then run under the modified records and results are illustrated to understand the structural behavior of a building. This process is performed several times for the different levels of the input motion shaking to understand the distinct stages in the behaviour of the building. TO BE CONT’D
