Seismic Assessment of Unreinforced Masonry Buildings in Canada
nreinforced masonry (URM) structures have shown to be susceptible to significant damage during strong earthquakes. Vulnerability assessment of URM buildings is needed so that appropriate mitigation strategies can be implemented. The existing Canadian practice consists of rapid seismic screening of buildings to assign priorities for further and more refined assessments, followed by refined analysis of […]
Collapse Prevention Design Criteria for Moment Connections in Multi-Story Steel Frames Under Extreme Actions
he paper investigates the role of beam-to-column connections in mitigation the progressive collapse of multi-story steel frame buildings in case of column loss. On this purpose, a set of moment frames with different beam-to-column connections is designed following seismic design criteria for highly dissipative structures to resist seismic actions. Applied Element Method through nonlinear dynamic […]
