Analytical And Experimental Study Of Gap Damper System To Control Seismic Isolator Displacements In Extreme Earthquakes
Base isolation systems generally perform well under design-level ground motions to reduce both interstory drift and acceleration demands. During a maximum considered earthquake, however, large displacements in the base ...
Seismic Response of a Highway Bridge with Structural Fuses for Seismic Protection of Piers
Previous research and experience demonstrates that post-earthquake downtime can cripple the transportation network, damage the economic viability of the region, and possibly have more far-reaching consequences due to the ...
Experimental Study of Target Demands to Minimize Seismic Induced Content Disruption
This study reports on the evaluation of the response of building contents subjected to a series of 1-D shaking experiments in a linear and nonlinear structure, with the goal of developing simplified seismic fragility ...
Seismic Response of a Full-scale 5-story Steel Frame Building Isolated by Triple Pendulum Bearings under 3D Excitations
A full-scale shake table test of a 5-story steel moment frame building was carried out as part of a collaborative NEES/E-Defense research program. The building was tested in three configurations: isolated with triple ...
Toward Successful Implementation of Prefabricated Deck Panels to Accelerate the Bridge Construction Process
The development of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) techniques and connection details has become a national research focus. With the aging of the interstate system and many bridges on key routes requiring extensive ...
Evaluation of lower damage concepts for enhanced reparability of reinforced concrete walls
As a consequence of recent earthquakes in New Zealand, many concrete buildings have been demolished due to structural damage. Researchers have assessed the unsatisfactory performance of concrete walls and improved current ...
Slab Vibration and Horizontal-Vertical Coupling in the Seismic Response of Irregular Base-Isolated and Conventional Buildings
Recent developments in seismic performance objectives that allow superior structural designs have highlighted the importance of providing continued functionality to nonstructural components and systems (NCSs). Modern ...
Comparative response of mid-rise (9-story) based-isolated and conventional steel moment resisting frame buildings
Base isolation systems are preferably applied in low-rise buildings since the vibration period of the structure can be shorter, so that it performs more rigidly to maximize the benefit from the isolation system. Mid-rise ...
Influence of Vertical Ground Motion on Bridges Isolated with Friction Pendulum Bearings
AbstractInfluence of Vertical Ground Motion on Bridges Isolated with FrictionPendulum BearingsThe motivation for this project comes from test of a full scale building isolated withtriple friction pendulum bearings on ...
