The purpose of this work is determination of the performance point of a frame for different soil type, the location of this point on the curve capacity will predict the behavior of the frame in case of earthquakes, this method consists in a first step to apply static loads on the frame, the non linear behavior of the structure is defined, the nonlinearity of the structure is introduced with the use of plastic hinges, the second step is to find the capacity curve by transforming respectively shear at the base and displacement in the top to acceleration and displacement corresponding to a system of a single degree of freedom , finally results of performance point will be discussed.
