Passive Energy Dissipation Systems for Structural Design and Retrofit
This monograph introduces the basic concepts of passive energy dissipation and discusses current research, development, design and code-related activities in the field. The authors provide basic definitions for passive ...
Proceedings of the US-Japan Joint Seminar on Civil Infrastructure Systems Research
A two and one-half day Bilateral Seminar on Civil Infrastructure Systems (CIS) Research was held on August 28-30, 1997, under the joint sponsorship of the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Japan Society for Promotion ...
Shake Table Test of a 1/8 Scale Three-Story Lightly Reinforced Concrete Building
A 1/8 scale 3-story one-bay by three-bay office building was tested on the Cornell shake table. The structure was designed solely for gravity loads without regard to any kind of lateral loads. Reinforcement details were ...
Closed-Loop Modal Testing of a 27-Story Reinforced Concrete Flat Plate-Core Building
Modal testing of a 27-story reinforced concrete flat plate building with concrete cores was performed to identify a reliable analytical model. Closed-loop modal tests were performed to acquire data by utilizing a linear ...
Seismic Fragility of Existing Conventional Reinforced Concrete Highway Bridges
This report establishes a framework for fragility analysis of typical short span continuous reinforced concrete highway bridges. The bridge selected for analysis is the Meloland Road Overcrossing located near El Centro, ...
An Experimental Study on the Seismic Performance of Brick-Infilled Steel Frames With and Without Retrofit
Experimental results are presented for three infill frame subassemblages. The specimens were constructed from bolted steel frames, infilled with clay brick masonry, and tested in-plane under quasi-static cyclic loading. ...
Instantaneous Optimal Control Laws for Tall Buildings Under Seismic Excitations
A critical review of classical optimal control algorithms is made with respect to the specific application of structural control under seismic loads. With the earthquake ground acceleration being the major source of ...
Active Structural Control in Civil Engineering
The objective of this paper is to provide a state-of-the-art assessment of active control research as applied to civil engineering structures. An attempt is made to present it with less specialized research content suitable ...
