Shear strength and displacement capacity of squat reinforced concrete shear walls
Squat reinforced concrete (RC) walls are essential structural components in nuclear power facilities (NPP) and in many civil structures. An adequate prediction of the shear strength and displacement capacity of these ...
Rehabilitation of RC residential houses on gravity columns over slope terrain
It is well known that Puerto Rico is exposed to the risk of experiencing strong earthquakes, since it is located in an earthquake prone region. It is a fact that in Puerto Rico there are many houses that are built over ...
Design of residential housing using welded wire mesh reinforcement and linear evaluation of the walls under dynamic loadings
This thesis presents the results of the design of residential housing using welded wire mesh reinforcement (WWR) and the lineal evaluation of the shear walls reinforced with WWR under dynamic loadings. Typical residential ...
Seismic performance and fragility curves for reinforced concrete frame and shear wall residential buildings in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is situated in an earthquake prone region. Most of residential buildings in Puerto Rico are reinforced concrete structures. Because of the imminent risk of being affected by a strong earthquake, it is important ...
Evaluation of the lateral stiffness for the seismic analysis and design of squat RC walls
Reinforced concrete (RC) squat walls provide most of the structure lateral strength and stiffness to resist earthquakes and wind loadings in nuclear power plants and other buildings. A reduction factor is usually applied ...
