JAPANESE 'PRESSS' DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE BUILDINGS

This paper briefly introduces an ultimate strength design method for reinforced concrete buildings on the basis of the capacity design concept. A design guideline was developed in Japan as a part of the U.S.-Japan PRESSS (Precast Seismic Structural System) project. The design for earthquake loading is specified for the serviceability limit state and ultimate limit state. This paper introduces the concept of earthquake resistant design for the ultimate limit state using a nonlinear static analysis under monotonically increasing force.
