Consideración de las columnas cortas en la vulnerabilidad sísmica de las estructuras
It 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 ...
Seismic analyses and instrumentation of the Patillas earth dam
This thesis presents the results of seismic analyses performed for an earth dam located in Patillas, Puerto Rico. This embankment dam was built using hydraulic filling between 1912 and 1914. The dam geometry and material ...
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 ...
Study of the seismic behavior of steel buildings with a 1/6 scale model and shaking table tests
This thesis summarizes the design, construction and instrumentation of a 1/6 scale model of a steel structure typically used in commercial buildings in Puerto Rico, and the evaluation of methods to upgrade its performance ...
Seismic analysis of the embedded control tower at Success Dam
This thesis presents the analyses carried out to compute the Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction (DSSI) effects of the embedded control tower at Success Dam, California. The particular case of the Success Dam in Sacramento, ...
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 ...
