Seismic response of inelastic concrete structures using the equivalent linear method
The equivalent linear method is widely used in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering to calculate the accelerations at the surface of soil deposits subject to earthquakes of moderate intensity. The method approximately takes ...
Influence of spectrum compatible earthquake records on the inelastic behavior of reinforced concrete structures
Seismic designed structures are expected to resist minor level earthquakes without significant damage as well as major level earthquakes without collapse. Over the last years the number of seismic instrumentation networks ...
Experimental and numerical evaluation of wavelet based damage detection methodologies for civil infraestructure
Reduced scale models of a single span bridge, a 12 bay truss bridge, and a numerical model of a multi-story shear building were used to evaluate the capability of Wavelet Transforms for damage detection and system ...
Seismic analysis of horizontal axis wind turbines
The wind energy industry has seen a substantial growth in several industrialized countries in recent years. Traditionally, territories in northern Europe, with a low level of seismicity, have been the leaders in the use ...
Seismic analysis and retrofitting measures for bridge No. 2001 in Highway PR-22, Bayamón, PR
The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has over 2200 in-service bridges as part of their inventory and more than 50% of these bridges were constructed over 30 years ago. Seismic design requirements are updated frequently due to ...
Evaluación computacional de la efectividad del método lineal equivalente para la estimación de la respuesta inelástica de pórticos de hormigón resistentes a momento
This thesis examined an approximate method to calculate the nonlinear seismic response of structures known as the Equivalent Linear Model (ELM) which seeks to approximate the true nonlinear response through a series of ...
