A Method for the Pre-Seismic Checking of Pilotis Columns

2nd Hellenic Conference for Seismic Engineering and Seismology, Thessaloniki
October 28-30, 2001

A simplified method for the preseismic evaluation of pilotis columns is proposed. The method considers the soft story mechanism and is based on elastoplastic analysis by use of the push over method. The Displacement Coefficient method (DCM) is applied and the plastic rotation and shear transfer in the columns are examined according to the latest scientific knowledge. Finally, measures for improvement of the behaviour and strengthening are proposed.
