Computational Methods in Earthquake Engineering by Dimitrios G. Lignos, Helmut Krawinkler (auth.), Manolis

By Dimitrios G. Lignos, Helmut Krawinkler (auth.), Manolis Papadrakakis, Michalis Fragiadakis, Nikos D. Lagaros (eds.)

This e-book presents an perception in complex equipment and ideas for structural research and layout opposed to seismic loading. The publication contains 25 chapters facing a variety of well timed matters in modern Earthquake Engineering. in short, the subjects coated are: cave in evaluate, checklist choice, impact of soil stipulations, difficulties in seismic layout, safety of monuments, earth dam constructions and liquid bins, numerical tools, lifetime review, post-earthquake measures.

A universal floor of knowing is supplied among the groups of Earth Sciences and Computational Mechanics in the direction of mitigating seismic threat. the subject is of serious social and medical curiosity, a result of huge variety of scientists and practising engineers presently operating within the box and because of the nice social and financial results of earthquakes.

0:30 0:80 m/. The damage observed [15] during the 2003 earthquake was mainly concentrated at the perimeter of the building and at the ground level, where most columns suffered flexural failure, with the exception of the side short columns which exhibited shear failure. 3 Numerical Analysis Framework of R/C Building For the structural assessment of the building under various sets (bins) of earthquake ground motions, a large number of nonlinear dynamic analyses were performed [18] using finite element software (Zeus-NL [19]).

As a result the global pushover curve of the structure is obtained, where the base shear is plotted against a characteristic deformation parameter. In general the lateral displacement of the roof is selected as characteristic parameter. It is assumed that the shape of the global pushover curve reflects the global or the local mechanism involved when the structure approaches dynamic instability. In Fig. 2 the effect of gravity loads on the global pushover curve of a multi-story frame structure is illustrated.
