The Direct Displacement-Based Design (DDBD) method has become a popular seismic design tool for structures. It takes drift as the performance criterion while designing structures. This method overcomes the shortcomings of the traditional force-based seismic design method, which considers peak force as the design parameter. In terms of structural damage, deflection is a better indicator, and hence, DDBD is a more acceptable method for seismic design. In this paper, a 12-story RC frame building with supplemental damping has been designed and investigated using a direct procedure of calculation, while considering the displacement-based design method. The performance of building with and without viscous dampers for a particular performance level has been compared. The effects of the non-linearity of dampers have also been discussed, and the effect of constant and story proportional drift proportional damper forces have been investigated. The results of various cases have been compared. It has been found that drift proportional story shear proportional carried damper design leads to construction economy.

Performance-based seismic design (PBSD) method has been widely recognized in recent years, it can be used for the future structural design. And the direct displacement-based design method (DDBD) is one of the most effective ways to implement the performance-based seismic design (PBSD) theory in current. In this paper, aiming to the composite frame consisting of composite beams and continuous compound spiral hoop reinforced concrete columns (CCSHRCS), its DDBD flowchart is presented, and the structure identified performance objectives in the preliminary design process and specific seismic performance assessment methods are given. Finally, through the calculation results of CCSHRCS frame case that demonstrated the reasonableness of the method. It provides an effective tool for the seismic design of CCSHRCS frame structures

The Seismic design of structure has conventionally been force based. Displacement is the major factor for the damage rather than force. The alternative procedure for seismic design, which becomes more popular, is performance based design method. Displacement is global parameter of performance based design method. Direct displacement based design method has been used for seismic design of structure. The paper attempts to design moment resisting RC-frame using Displacement based design method and Forced based design method. 15-storey building with shear wall has been taken for parametric study. The parameter like base shear and lateral load distribution are taken for the study. It is observed that base shear of RC building calculated by DDBD is less compared to FBD.

A displacement-based optimization design method of RC structure was proposed by combining direct displacement-based design method with nonlinear programming technique. To avert the influence of target displacement, the stationary constraint displacement was presented, and the target displacement can be updated during the optimal design process. Principle of virtual work and Gaussian integral method was employed to simplify the explicit relationship between horizontal displacement and the section dimension. Comparison analysis of the local optimal results corresponding to different displacement shapes was conducted to achieve global optimal design. The numerical tests presented demonstrate the computational advantages of the discussed methods and suggesting that the proposed method is a reliably and efficiently tool for displacement-based optimal design.

According to lots of documents previously studied, a seismic design method is put forward based on displacement for steel moment frame. This method is established in condition that the yield displacement of steel frame can be determined by its geometrical dimension; then the objective displacement (ultimate displacement) can be determined in light of performance level of the structure, and the corresponding coefficient of ductility can be obtained. Thereafter, the design base shear of steel frame structure can be calculated by the use of reduced elastic spectrum. Thus, the design of stiffness and capacity can be conducted on steel frame structure. The analysis of case study indicates that the displacement-based seismic design method addressed herein is of reasonable safety and reliability, and of operational convenience, which can still realize the seismic design of steel frame structure at different performance levels.
