TAPIA HERNANDEZ, Edgar  and  GARCIA CARRERA, Jesús Salvador. Behavior of steel structures during earthquakes of september 2017. Ing. sísm [online]. 2019, n.101, pp.36-52.  Epub Apr 30, 2020. ISSN 0185-092X.

In this paper the seismic behavior of some steel structures under the demands imposed by earthquakes of September 2017. The attention is focused on two performance levels: structures with structural damage and structures with damage in non-structural elements. The paper reports the acquired experience about the behavior of steel structures in order to emphasize the lessons of general interest to the structural engineering community.

Keywords : steel structures; earthquake demands; columns; displacements control.
