Abstract: In India when structure engineer’s analysis and design a structure like buildings, they are checking it for displacement because of safety and control of damages; so in this paper a set of frames with different height of reinforced moment resisting frames were analyzed by two popular methods of performance-based plastic design method and direct displacement-based design method. For calculation of base shear, the IS code has been used in both methods and ETABS software used for seismic performance evaluation by nonlinear static pushover analysis. The results of analysis with different methods compared by suitable parameters and graphs, such as: (a) story lateral force, (b) beam seismic moment, (c) displacement profile and (d) capacity curve. Results show acceptable performance in 2 methods in terms of capacity and deformation.
Keywords: Performance-based plastic design, displacement profile, Seismic performance, Direct displacement-based design, beam seismic moment, capacity curve.
