Abstract

A reliability-based design method for the rehabilitation of buildings with energy-dissipating devices is proposed. The design method is formulated within the demand and capacity factor design (DCFD) format. The proposed approach is based on verifying that the confidence levels (associated with the serviceability and the ultimate limit states) corresponding to the rehabilitated structure are equal to or larger than the confidence levels associated with a similar conventional structure that is designed in accordance with a reference seismic design code. The method is illustrated with a five-story building rehabilitated with steel TADAS energy-dissipating plates.
