The purpose of this study is to investigate the behavior of reinforced concrete (RC)frames under cyclic loads strengthened by using precast concrete (PC) panels. The idea is to transform the existing hollow brick infills into strong and rigid infills by bonding relatively high-strength PC panels with a thin layer of epoxy mortar By this method, the seismic behavior of the frame is improved. For this purpose-one being reference-a total of 11 one-third scale, one-hay, two-story deficient RC frames were tested under reversed cyclic lateral loads. Six different panel types were used for strengthening purposes. It was observed that the strength, lateral stiffness, and energy dissipation capacity of strengthened frames were significantly improved.

Seismic Strengthening with Precast Concrete Panels - Theoretical Approach
Baran, Mehmet; Canbay, Erdem; Tankut, Tugrul (2010-01-01)
An economical, structurally effective and practically applicable seismic retrofitting technique has been developed on the basis of the principle of strengthening the existing hollow brick infill walls by using high strength precast concrete panels. The technique would not require evacuation of the building and would be applicable without causing much disturbance to the occupant. For this purpose, a total of eighteen reinforced concrete frames with hollow brick infill walls were tested under reversed cyclic ...
Evaluation of shear wall indexes for reinforced concrete buildings
Soydaş, Ozan; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
An analytical study was carried out to evaluate shear wall indexes for low to mid-rise reinforced concrete structures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different shear wall ratios on performance of buildings to be utilized in the preliminary assessment and design stages of reinforced concrete buildings with shear walls. In order to achieve this aim, forty five 3D building models with two, five and eight storeys having different wall ratios were generated. Linearly elastic and nonlinear st...
Seismic upgrading of reinforced concrete frames with structural steel elements
Özçelik, Ramazan; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
This thesis examines the seismic internal retrofitting of existing deficient reinforced concrete (RC) structures by using structural steel members. Both experimental and numerical studies were performed. The strengthening methods utilized with the scope of this work are chevron braces, internal steel frames (ISFs), X-braces and column with shear plate. For this purpose, thirteen strengthened and two as built reference one bay one story portal frame specimens having 1/3 scales were tested under constant grav...
Retrofit of Non-Ductile RC Frames with Precast Concrete (PC) Wall Panels
BARAN, MEHMET; Tankut, Tugrul (2011-12-01)
An economic, structurally effective and practically applicable strengthening method had been developed for reinforced concrete (RC) framed buildings. This study presents the test results on strengthening of deficient RC frames by using high strength precast concrete (PC) panels. The idea of the method is to convert the existing hollow brick infill wall into a load carrying system by bonding PC panels on to the plastered hollow brick infills. For this purpose, six (two reference and four strengthened) one-th...
Seismic behavior of autoclaved aerated concrete reinforced vertical panel buildings
Gökmen, Furkan; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
In this study, the seismic behavior of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) reinforced panel walls and buildings was investigated. The structural members were investigated under cyclic lateral loading and axial load and the results were compared with the previous tests. The main objective of this study was to provide recommendations for nonlinear analysis of the reinforced AAC panel walls and buildings. OpenSees plat-form was chosen as the computational platform. The walls were modeled with fiber sections. The...
