Earthquake stresses and effective damping in concrete gravity dams
Akpinar, Ugur; Binici, Barış; Arıcı, Yalın (2014-03-01)
Dynamic analyses for a suite of ground of motions were conducted on concrete gravity dam sections to examine the earthquake induced stresses and effective damping. For this purpose, frequency domain methods that rigorously incorporate dam-reservoir-foundation interaction and time domain methods with approximate hydrodynamic foundation interaction effects were employed. The maximum principal tensile stresses and their distribution at the dam base, which are important parameters for concrete dam design, were ...

Seismic vulnerability, behavior and design of tunnel form building structures
Balkaya, C; Kalkan, E (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
Multi-story reinforced concrete tunnel form buildings are one of the common structural types in regions prone to high seismic risk due to the buildings inherent earthquake resistance and ease of construction. Despite their good performance during earthquakes in 1999 in Turkey, and abundance of such structures scattered worldwide, current seismic codes and design provisions provide insufficient guidelines for their seismic design. As a compensatory measure, a series of modal and nonlinear static analyses are...
Seismic damage assessment of a historic masonry building under simulated scenario earthquakes: A case study for Arge-Tabriz
Hoveidae, Nader; Fathi, Ahmad; Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh (2021-08-01)
Damage prediction of existing buildings against natural events is a challenge for engineers. Although several approaches have been proposed in the bibliography for damage assessment of steel and concrete structures, more studies are required to survey the damage state of masonry buildings. In this research, seismic damage of a historical masonry building, named Arge-Tabriz, has been assessed using region-specified simulated ground motion records. The main goal of the research is to predict the damage levels...
