Nonlinear Analysis of Steel Frames with Semi-rigid Connections Using the Capacity Spectrum Method
This report summarizes the development and application of a computer aided system for the inelastic analysis, evaluation, and design of three-dimensional steel frames with semi-rigid connections under static loading. Main ...
Ductility of Rectangular Reinforced Concrete Bridge Columns with Moderate Confinement
This study examines the ductility and behavior of rectangular reinforced concrete bridge columns with moderate confinement. The research comprised experimental and analytical investigation of the response of such columns ...
Inelastic Response of Reinforced Concrete Structures with Viscoelastic Braces
The addition of viscoelastic braces in structures for vibration reduction was proposed and implemented in the past decade in metal models or full-scale structures. Viscoelastic braces provide energy dissipation, while the ...
Evaluation, Prevention and Mitigation of Pounding Effects in Building Structures
Pounding between inelastic structures is investigated using an energy approach. A comprehensive state of the art review is first presented. The main characteristics of the pounding problem are identified and formulated in ...
Experimental Study on the Seismic Design and Retrofit of Bridge Columns Including Axial Load Effects
This report details the development of retrofit procedures for reinforced concrete bridge columns and their connections. The report extends the Control and Repairability of Damage (CARD) column design philosophy for new ...
Hokkaido Nansei-oki, Japan Earthquake of July 12, 1993
This report reviews damages caused by the magnitude 7.8 earthquake which occurred offshore, southwest of the Island of Hokkaido in Northern Japan on July 12, 1993. The earthquake caused moderately strong ground shaking ...
Centrifuge Modeling of Cyclic Lateral Response of Pile-Cap Systems and Seat-Type Abutments in Dry Sands
This report presents the results from a series of centrifuge tests, which were performed on pile-cap foundation systems (cap, single-pile and pile-cap systems) and seat-type abutments, all in dense dry sand. The pile-cap ...
Physical Space Solutions of Non-proportionally Damped Systems
Numerical methods to obtain the responses of non-proportionally damped systems are compared in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Based on a theoretical investigation of non-proportional damping mechanisms, a new class of ...
