In other words, the current code framework for ground motion record selection is considered to be rather simplified compared to the potential impact of the selection process on the dynamic analysis, thus giving the false impression that structural analysis results are as robust as the refined finite element model used permit them to be. Some state-of-the-art methods [7–10] have been proposed in order to optimize the selection and scaling process of real records, but it is unlikely that these methods can be used in common practice as of yet.

15 renders the collapse capacity CC D 7:6. Division by the coefficient MDOF results in the collapse capacity of the ESDOF system, CC ESDOF D 7:6 1 D 9:83 0:774 (18) Comparing this outcome with the result of the IDA procedure on the actual 15-story frame structure according to Eq. 4, CC15DOF D 10:5, reveals that CC ESDOF is for this example a reasonable approximation of the collapse capacity. In addition, Fig. e. 6. The latter value is considered only for curiosity. Median, 16% percentile and 84% percentile collapse capacity derived from IDAs are depicted by black lines.
