Discussion of "A new inherent damping model for inelastic time‐history analyses" by Enrique Luco and Armando Lanzi


This discussion examines several aspects of the proposed elastic velocity damping formulation that pertain to the suitability of the method for use in inelastic time history analysis. These aspects include the absence of damping actions as a structure moves through a collapse mechanism, lack of physical justification, and potential computational issues.
