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 ...
Análisis dinámico y evaluación sísmica de la represa de contrafuertes Guayabal
Esta tesis presenta el análisis dinámico y la evaluación sísmica de la represa de contrafuertes Guayabal ubicada en Juana Díaz, Puerto Rico para establecer conclusiones preliminares en cuanto a su integridad estructural ...
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 ...
Assessment of directional combination rules for the seismic analysis of nuclear power plant structures
To assure the safety of Nuclear Power Plant structures, it is crucial to design them in a way that guarantees the continuous function of systems, structures, and components (SSC) after the seismic event has passed. Seismic ...
