A FORM-based reliability analysis has been conducted on a simple non-linear spring model idealizing a one-way asymmetric one-storey building in order to compare the plan irregularity criteria used by two major seismic codes like EC8 and IBC. Limited to the numerical example carried on a sample of structures, it appears that the IBC criterion is more conservative and complete than the EC8 ones.

Abstract

A FORM-based reliability analysis has been conducted on a simple non-linear spring model idealizing a one-way asymmetric one-storey building in order to compare the plan irregularity criteria used by two major seismic codes like EC8 and IBC. Limited to the numerical example carried on a sample of structures, it appears that the IBC criterion is more conservative and complete than the EC8 ones.
