In this paper, an analytical model is proposed for analyzing the hysteretic behavior of RC beam with relocated plastic hinge region under load reversals. The plastic hinge is modeled not to be concentrated on a point but to be distributed on a finite size in beam. This is based on the assumption that the plastic hinge is formed over a certain region, in which the curvature varies. Tangential matrix is reformed using stiffness coefficients including variales such as the length and location of plastic hinge region. In order to construct the hysteretic rule of hinge, modified Takeda rule is also proposed on the base of regression analysis for the previous test results. Previous specimens are analyzed using the proposed model and the result is compared with test result. On the result of the comparison, it was shown that the hysteretic behavior of beams with different location of plastic hinge region could be prediced using the proposed analytical process.
