Pilotis Seismic Behavior of Apartment Blocks (Push Over) – Methods of Strengthening

Graduate Paper Presentation TEI Piraeus, 2012 Increased roof displacement occurs in masonry-free flats on the ground floor (Pilotis) or large openings in the masonry. The maximum possible elastoplastic earthquake displacement is almost proportional to the eigenperiod. Increased resistance to horizontal loading (eg, earthquake) present apartment buildings with reinforced...

Designing and Reinforcing Slabs

Basic Training for STATIK-5H, CEDRUS-5H - Unit 1 2008 The design of reinforced concrete slabs, the simulation, the calculation, the dimensioning and reinforcing are aimed at functionality, safety and economy. Functionality is related to architecture, as well as ease of passage of installations, security by meeting the...

Elastic-Plastic Analysis based on Displacements. The Push Over Method

Seminar on the ductility and fracture of reinforced concrete structural members Park Hotel, May 2007 The first part covers the elastoplastic response of the single degree of freedom oscillator. The calculation of the maximum probable displacement of the oscillator is based either on the empirical method of...

Plasticity and Fracture of Reinforced Concrete Structural Members

Seminar on the ductility and fracture of reinforced concrete structural members Park Hotel, May 2007 This part covers inelastic deformation and fracture mechanisms of concrete and the effect of confinement in the increase of ductility. The effect of brittle failure under compression and shear is examined as...
