Resumen

This study determines the structural behavior of a four level framed building with composite RC and steel structure designed according Venezuelan seismic codes. The structural system consists of RC frames in the first three levels and steel frames in the fourth. It was performed linear analysis to design all structural elements. Capacity curves and performance points were obtained with pushover analysis. Results showed greater ductility in the X frames' direction and greater resistance reserve in the external frames. Performing points showed adequate resistance values but low stiffness in two Y frames' directions. Seismic action is carried on through synthetic accelerograms defined by the seismic codes used in this study. Dynamic analysis is used to compute parameters of ductility, over strength and displacements. In one case the collapse Limit State was reached, implying a general collapse of the building. Incremental dynamic analysis was performed to obtain fragility curves and damage probability matrix; a very high probability of significant lateral displacement and damage was evidenced from this despite a normative design of structural elements.
