6] and Villaverde [7] provide an overview on studies dealing with collapse by dynamic instability in earthquake excited structures. In an inelastic single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system the gravity load generates a shearing of its hysteretic force-displacement relationship. Characteristic displacements (such as the yield displacement) of this relationship remain unchanged, whereas the characteristic forces (such as the strength) are reduced. As a result, the slope of the curve is decreased in its elastic and post-elastic branch of deformation.

Small-scale experiments were conducted to develop numerical robust models of steel moment-resisting connections that can capture deterioration of strength and stiffness. These models were used to simulate the seismic response of a code-compliant four-story steel momentresisting frame through collapse and to develop an earthquake-simulator testing program. The earthquake-simulator testing of two scale models of the four-story frame provided the first set of physical test data on the response of framed structures to a wide range of earthquake-shaking intensity through collapse.
