The world's 3D full-scale earthquake shaking table test facility, also known as E-Defense, was built by the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience. The facility confirms the failure mechanisms of full-scale structures during earthquakes and verifies the effects of seismic retrofitting. In December 2015, shaking table tests of ten-story reinforced concrete buildings, of which structural system was the moment-resisting frame on a longer direction and frame with a shear wall on a shorter direction using the E-Defense, were conducted to gain building engineering knowledge about the continued use of buildings after a major earthquake and confirm the seismic performance of buildings designed on the basis All recommendations as well as examine its performance given by the newest Japanese design. In this study, we propose and investigated a numerical analysis model-a lumped mass multiple-degree-of-freedom system-to estimate the seismic resistance structural system used in the 2015 shaking table tests. The hysteretic models for story behavior are determined using the results of nonlinear static pushover analysis.
