Abstract
This monograph explains how probabilistic seismic risk assessments can be performed at different resolution levels using the same methodology, providing results in terms of [...]
Abstract
The monograph begins with a review of the usual seismic analysis procedures and presents the problem of seismic-resistant projects. The required structurual analyses can be [...]
Abstract
This monograph presents a summary of the importance for the State of having a public policy of protection or financial management of risk from the perspective of disasters. [...]
Abstract
In this work, a formulation for rod structures, able to consider coupled geometric and constitutive sources of nonlinearity in both the static and the dynamic range, is developed. [...]
Abstract
The monograph highlights the way in which, in the long term, the application of design standards can lead to a reduction of seismic risk in urban areas. The seismic design [...]
Abstract
Once an earthquake has occurred, the inspection of the buildings should be carried out as quickly as possible, in order to reduce the risk and discomfort of the people. This [...]
Abstract
The system of indicators described in this monograph has been the main objective of the operation ATN / JF-7907-RG of the IDB, coordinated by the Instituto de Environmental [...]
Abstract
The Risk Management Index, IGR, is an essential technical contribution of operation ATN / JF-7907-RG of the IDB, coordinated by the Institute of Environmental Studies, IDEA, [...]
Abstract
In this monograph, we study the definition of possible damage in bridges by using simplified structural models. The state-of-the-art of the seismic vulnerability of bridges [...]
Abstract
In this monograph, a complete review of the state of the art of the seismic vulnerability of motorway bridges is carried out. The work begins with a review of the damage caused [...]
Abstract
In this monograph, a numerical model based on the finite element method is developed to analyze buildings with base seismic isolation, discretizing the structure-isolator [...]
Abstract
The standards make recommendations regarding the seismic loads, the simplified methods of structural analysis, the criteria that must be applied to ensure its good global [...]
Abstract
The main objective of this monograph is to evaluate the overall damage index of framed reinforced concrete structures using different models. In order to achieve this objective [...]
Abstract
The design and construction of structures in seismic areas requires knowledge of the seismic actions to which they can be subjected throughout their useful life. In general, [...]
Abstract
The present work is aimed at conducting studies of vulnerability and seismic risk of building structures. The objective of such studies is to try to predict the damage expected [...]
Abstract
The monograph is subdivided into two parts. The first part presents concepts of seismology such as intensity or magnitude, together with probabilistic concepts related to [...]
Abstract
The present monograph is a continuation of the monograph MIS-10 and uses the same concepts and definitions described therein. However, to facilitate reading, the authors briefly [...]
Abstract
This monograph describes a conceptual framework necessary for the formulation of seismic risk and of vulnerability studies. The Italian methodology of the vulnerability index [...]
Abstract
The present monograph describes different ways to define the action of earthquakes upon structures. The progress that has taken place in recent years the application of different [...]
Abstract
In this monograph, we study a type of hybrid system that combines a base isolation system with an active control system that applies forces on the base. The control forces [...]
Abstract
The monograph summarizes the problem of risk for any type of natural phenomenon, defines each of the terms that intervene in the risk analysis, describes the way in which [...]
Abstract
The objectives of the seismic design of buildings can be achieved by applying techniques of conventional design that consider the that the ground motion is transmitted to [...]
