However, a consistent relationship between the local P-delta effect and the global P-delta effect, which characterizes the overall impact of gravity loads on the structure, cannot be established due to dynamic interaction between adjacent stories in a multi-story frame structure [2]. g. Takizawa and Jennings [16], Bernal [17], Adam et al. [18], it is proposed to assess the global P-delta effect in frame structures by means of equivalent single-degree-of-freedom (ESDOF) systems. If the story drifts remain rather uniformly distributed over the height, regardless of the extent of inelastic deformation, a global assessment of the P-delta effect by means of ESDOF systems is not difficult.
