The design of steel structures for ductile response requires (a) materialductility, (b) cross section and member ductility, and (c) structural ductility. Dissipating the earthquake input energy by means of plastic excursions has to be compatible with the plastic deformation capacity of the structure. This work concerns incremental approach of modeling for elastoplastic analysis of structural members subjected to harmonically varying severe earthquake loads and their parametric responses over a range of applied frequencies and amplitudes. Investigations have been carried out in respect of stable and reliable hysteretic energy dissipation mechanisms of high rise steel structures against typical time-history loading of four hypothetical frequencies. Eigen-buckling responses for high rise steel structures subjected to earthquake forces are derived using general purpose software (STAAD). Finally critical structural component is identified for the high rise steel structure for estimation of available in-elastic dissipation energy from material ductility against earthquake excitations. The novelty allows for a very useful generalized formulation for the basic analysis procedures adopted in non-linear material problems. All essential features of a non-linear finite element solution are described in relation to one dimensional model for elasto-plastic beam bending. Solutions techniques are programmed in FORTRAN 90 for Newton-Raphson iteration for non-linear finite element analysis to derive hysteretic energy dissipation of high rise steel structures.
