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 concrete shear walls, masonry (reinforced or un reinforced) and to a certain extent the structures that have been reinforced by application of jackets to pilotis columns.

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 regulations in terms of operation and failure, economy with material expense and ease of manufacture. Four classic cases of reinforced concrete slabs will be investigated together with the diaphragm beams, because slabs and beams work together statically as a structural element and should therefore be modeled respectively. This is achieved through CEDRUS and STATIK in the best way, since CEDRUS works with surface finite elements, which also have the ability to integrate the beams into the same model.

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 the displacement coefficient or on the capacity spectrum method derived from the hysteretic damping of the system. The results are compared with those of the timehistory analysis of earthquake recordings of the last twenty years in Greece. For stiff, low strength structures, unfavorable soil conditions the results seem to be much higher than the theoretical values therefore improved solutions for practice are proposed. Application of pushover method in multi degree of freedom systems is analyzed followed by a presentation of evaluation strategies, design or redesign of the structure through the increase of stiffness, strength and ductility. Simple relations for the design of earthquake resistant walls are also proposed, suitable for preliminary studies.

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 an result of concentration of inelastic deformations. Simple models for confinement, bending and shear are presented where various shear transfer mechanisms are analyzed. Examples for brittle failure of short columns are solved, plastic rotation is calculated and as a final point brittle failure of slabs under punching shear is modeled.
