1 Introduction Steel moment-resisting frame structures located in high seismic hazard zones are susceptible to excessive lateral deformations during strong ground motions. Some of these structures were designed according to strength-based codes, and

between floors are often related to abrupt variations in the geometry of the frame along with the height. There are many examples [ 6, 7 ] of building failures in past earthquakes due to discontinuities in elevation. In reality, structures are often
