Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate a dissipative reinforced concrete structural wall that can improve the behavior of a tall multi-storey building, evaluating the damage it undergoes in comparison with that of a solid wall. The comparative nonlinear dynamic analysis between [...]

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate a reinforced concrete multi-storey building with dissipative structural walls. These walls can improve the behaviour of a tall multi-storey building. The damage of a building with dissipative walls is compared with that of a building [...]

Abstract

This work presents the results of a study carried out to characterize the mechanical response of a high damping rubber to be used in designing and constructing energy dissipating devices and base isolators for controling strong vibrations in civil engineering structures. A new [...]

Abstract

The knowledge of ancestral peoples is retaken as an important knowledge in their relationship with nature and to face climate change; culture that must be confirmed by science. To give the reason for the mentioned knowledge, when using channel lattices for their plots, it is necessary [...]
