Seismic Debris Field for Collapsed RC Moment Resisting Frame Buildings

Abstract: The debris field of earthquake-induced building collapse can block or reduce the capacity of adjacent sidewalks and roads, hinder emergency and evacuation operations, and therefore adversely influence the seismic resilience of a community. To consider the...

High Fidelity Numerical Seismic Modeling of Ancient Brick Structures

Abstract: The evaluation of the seismic vulnerability of historical masonry buildings is a difficult task due to the uncertainty regarding structural characteristics and construction techniques, mechanical properties, and pre-existing damage. Hence, there is a need...
