Abstract

The probabilistic analysis of the seismic performance of a structure requires quantifying the uncertainties of the involved variables and parameters, including the seismic action and mechanical properties of its elements. In this article, the seismic performance of high-rise, mid-rise [...]

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

The main objective of this article is to propose a simplified methodology to assess the expected seismic damage in reinforced concrete buildings from a probabilistic point of view by using Monte Carlo simulation. In order to do so, the seismic behaviour of the building was studied [...]

Abstract

The static and seismic analysis of Janneh arch-gravity dam (157 m) is carried out by considering a combination of self-weight, hydrostatic, uplift and seismic loads. Linear and nonlinear analyses are performed for both static and seismic cases. Nonlinear behavior is studied by [...]

Abstract

A computational algorithm for predicting the nonlinear dynamic response of a structure is presented. The nonlinear system of ordinary differential equations resulting from [...]

Abstract

Most of buildings and structures are usually projected according to two main axes. However, the geographical position of these buildings varies randomly. Such random distributions of the azimuthal positions of structures, in most of the cities, generally, are not accounted for [...]
