ABSTRACT={The collapse-limit input velocity level of the critical double impulse simulating the principal part of near-fault ground motions is derived for an elastic-plastic structure with viscous damping and P-delta effect. The structural system is modeled by a bilinear hysteretic SDOF system with negative post-yield stiffness reflecting the P-delta effect which plays a key role in the collapse behavior. Since the critical timing of the second impulse in the double impulse has been proven as the zero-restoring force timing after the first impulse for the elastic-plastic SDOF system with viscous damping, that property is used again in this paper. It is shown that the collapse-limit input level of the critical double impulse can be obtained as a function of the post-yield stiffness and the damping ratio by using the energy balance law and the quadratic-function approximation of the damping force-deformation relation. The applicability of the collapse-limit level to actual recorded ground motions is investigated through the time-history response analysis for the stable models and the collapse models under two actual earthquake ground motions.}
