dc.description.abstractIt has been observed that in recent earthquakes the short column effect has caused damage. The main objective of this investigation was to develop a simple methodology to identify the short column effect. The methodology was based on the aspect ratio of columns of typical sections laterally confined up to certain height. The results of this study are summarized in several graphs that allow to discern between brittle failures (shear) and ductile (flexure) of short columns. Having observed the damages caused by several earthquakes from the past, a plot has been proposed to estimate damages from such short column effect.en_US
dc.description.abstractSe ha observado en terremotos recientes que el efecto de columna corta ha sido uno de los fenómenos que ha causado daño. El objetivo principal de esta investigación fue desarrollar una metodología simple para identificar las columnas con alta vulnerabilidad a sufrir el efecto de columna corta. La misma se basó en la razón de esbeltez de columnas de secciones típicas confinadas lateralmente hasta cierta altura. Los resultados de este estudio se resumen en varios gráficos que permiten discernir entre fallas quebradizas (por cortante) y dúctiles (por flexión) de columnas cortas. A su vez, de los daños observados en diversos terremotos, se propone un gráfico para estimar daños por la presencia de dicho efecto.en_US
