Evaluation, Modeling, and Retrofit of Flat-Slab Buildings subjected to Seismic Loading
Flat-slab buildings designed and detailed for gravity loads only typically do not have the ability to resist moderate earthquakes without experiencing severe damage. The damage potential of such seismically deficient ...
Identification of nonlinear and parametric systems with application to offshore structures
Nonlinearity is characteristic of many structural and mechanical systems. For the purpose of system identification, a frequency domain method is proposed. The unknown model of the restoring force or interaction force is ...
In-plane cyclic response of reinforced concrete frames with unreinforced masonry infills
The in-plane cyclic response of reinforced concrete frames with unreinforced masonry infill was studied. Four full-scale reinforced concrete frame assemblies with masonry infills were designed and tested under reversed ...
Dynamic soil pressures on embedded walls
A comprehensive study is made of the response to horizontal base shaking of a uniform viscoelastic soil stratum retained by two vertical rigid walls. The system is assumed to experience a space-invariant horizontal motion ...
