The ductility requirement of elastoplastic multi-d.o.f. shear structures is studied by analysing the response obtained through step-by-step integration of the equations of motion for some recorded accelerograms. In view of the high dependence of the structural strength reserve beyond the elastic range on the distribution of plastic deformations in the structure, this paper aims to establish the influence of the stiffnessdistribution and of the earthquake features on the local ductility demand. Attention is also paid to the analysis of the influence of variation in excitation intensity and duration on the seismic behaviour of the structural models considered. Numerical results show that overall structural ductility alone is not sufficiently representative to evaluate the ultimate state of multi-d.o.f. structures. Local ductility must also be specified in order to create a reliable aseismic design. In this context, the important role played by the distribution of stiffness over the structure is emphasized.
