Effect of Soil-Structure Interaction on the Seismic Response of Bridges with Isolation Bearings



Effect of Openings on the Seismic Response of AAC Infilled Frames
Todorovic, Lana; Demirel, İsmail Ozan; Binici, Barış (2019-10-11)
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is an attractive building material with lightweight, good insulation, fireproofing, and durability characteristics. The seismic response of AAC requires an in-depth understanding as its use as infill walls is gaining popularity in seismically active regions of many countries in Europe, Middle East, and Asia. Recent studies on the seismic response of AAC infill walls were mostly conducted on solid AAC walls without considering openings and simulated earthquake loading was ap...
Effect of hydraulic parameters on the formation of vortices at intake structures
Baykara, Ali; Göğüş, Mustafa; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
The aim of this experimental study was to investigate the hydraulic conditions at which air-entraining vortices would form in front of horizontal intakes and to determine the ways of eliminating the formation of these vortices by testing anti-vortex devices. For these reasons, a series of experiments were conducted in an experimental setup composed of a reservoir having the dimensions of 3.10 m x 3.10 m x 2.20 m and a pump connected to the intake pipe. Within the reservoir, between the concrete side walls a...
Effect of soil bridge interaction on the distribution of live load effects among integral bridge components
Erhan, S.; Dicleli, Murat (2010-07-15)
In this study, the effect of soil-bridge interaction on the magnitude of the internal forces in integral bridge (IB) components due to live load effects is studied. For this purpose, structural models of typical IBs are built by including and excluding the effect of backfill and foundation soil. The analyses of the models are then conducted under AASHTO live load. In the analyses, the effects of the backfill and foundation soil on the magnitude of the internal forces in IB components are studied for various...
Effect of shear walls on the behavior of reinforced concrete buildings under earthquake loading
Çömlekoğlu, Hakkı Gürhan; Burak Bakır, Burcu; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
An analytical study was performed to evaluate the effect of shear wall ratio on the dynamic behavior of mid-rise reinforced concrete structures. The primary aim of this study is to examine the influence of shear wall area to floor area ratio on the dynamic performance of a building. Besides, the effect of shear wall configuration and area of existing columns on the seismic performance of the buildings were also investigated. For this purpose, twenty four mid-rise building models that have five and eight sto...
Effect of isolator and ground motion characteristics on the performance of seismic-isolated bridges
Dicleli, Murat (Wiley, 2006-02-01)
This paper presents the effect of isolator and substructure properties as well as the frequency characteristics and intensity of the ground motion on the performance of seismic-isolated bridges (SIBs) and examines some critical design clauses in the AASHTO Guide Specification for Seismic Isolation Design. For this purpose, a parametric study, involving more than 800 non-linear time history analyses of simplified structural models representative of typical SIBs, is conducted. The results from the parametric ...
