2, Submission Process

Please submit the following to trevoryeow@eri.u-tokyo.ac.jp by 31st March 2020:

- Completed excel spreadsheet with team details and predictions:



- A concise report in PDF format describing the participant’s modelling approach. There are no formatting or page-limit requirements for this report, but it should contain the following information:

      Ø Processing of recorded foundation total accelerations (e.g. high-pass filters)

      Ø Adopted structural analysis software (e.g. OpenSEEs)

      Ø Structural analysis approach (e.g. finite-element modelling)

      Ø General analysis information (e.g. P-delta considerations, 2-D or 3-D analyses, etc)

      Ø Material/member hysteretic properties (e.g. Mander and Chang (1994) for concrete, Take for concrete members, etc)

      Ø Member properties (e.g. rigid end-zones, plastic hinge lengths)

      Ø Damping model (e.g. Caughey damping, damping ratio)

      Ø Solver algorithm (e.g. Newmark-beta)

      Ø Other information which the participant considers important
