103. Validation of the 2000 NEHRP Provisions’ Equivalent Lateral Force and Modal Analysis Procedures for Buildings with Damping Systems

Equivalent lateral force and modal analysis procedures for yielding buildings with damping systems were developed, validated, and incorporated in the 2000 NEHRP Provisions. Key to the implementation of the procedures was the validation process that demonstrated the accuracy of the proposed procedures. The procedures for implementing yielding, viscoelastic, linear viscous, and nonlinear viscous dampers were tested using the results of nonlinear response history analysis on sample three- and six story frames and were found to be robust.

3. Commentary on Corrosion

This document shows designers how to avoid corrosion due to the interaction of different metals and alloys at bimetallic contacts. Section one describes the conditions that lead to corrosion at bimetallic contacts and methods to alleviate it. The tables in Section two show the degree of corrosion likely to occur at bimetallic contacts exposed to atmosphere and water.
