An adaptive modal pushover analysis procedure (VMPA-A) for buildings subjected to bi-directional ground motions
A new modal pushover analysis procedure (VMPA-A) is developed and implemented in MATLAB code for three-dimensional buildings subjected to bidirectional ground motions. VMPA-A uses stepwise force patterns to represent ...
A capacity curve model for confined clay brick infills
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2016-03)
Experimental studies have proven that clay brick infills, confined with carbon-fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP) in reinforced concrete (RC) frames, have some advantages in terms of stiffness, strength, energy dissipation ...
A variant of modal pushover analyses (VMPA) based on a non-incremental procedure
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2015-11)
A variant of modal pushover analysis (VMPA) is presented to evaluate the seismic performance of the structures. The suggested procedure is based on an iterative process in which secant stiffnesses are used both at the ...
Quasi-Static And Pseudo-Dynamic Testing Of Infilled RC Frames Retrofitted With CFRP Material
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, The Boulevard, Langford Lane, Kidlington, Oxford Ox5 1Gb, Oxon, England, 2011-03)
The intact infill walls in reinforced concrete (RC) frames have beneficial effects to overall behavior in terms of stiffness, strength and energy dissipation in the event of seismic actions. The rationale of this paper is ...
Performance Of Alternative CFRP Retrofitting Schemes Used In Infilled RC Frames
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, The Boulevard, Langford Lane, Kidlington, Oxford Ox5 1Gb, Oxon, England, 2010-04)
A number of experimental studies have been reported in recent literature about the beneficial effects of infill walls on the seismic response of reinforced concrete (RC) frames. The experimental study presented in this ...
Masonry infill walls in reinforced concrete frames as a source of structural damping
(Wiley-Blackwell, 111 River St, Hoboken 07030-5774, Nj Usa, 2014-06)
This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the determination of damping characteristics of bare, masonry infilled, and carbon fiber reinforced polymer retrofitted infilled reinforced concrete (RC) frames. ...
