Performance of a precast concrete beam-to-beam connection subject to reversed cyclic loading
Korkmaz, HH; Tankut, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-08-01)
This study was performed as one phase of an extensive research program focusing on the seismic behaviour of precast connections carried out in Middle East Technical University. The primary objective of the research program was to observe and investigate the seismic behaviour of the connection detail proposed by the collaborating company and the specimens with improved details, in order to develop a 11 moment resisting precast concrete beam-to-beam connection". In this study, six beam-beam connection subasse...
Performance of Reinforced Concrete Columns Designed for Flexure under Severe Displacement Cycles
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2010-05-01)
Twelve full-scale column specimens designed for pure flexure failure were tested in this study. Two typical column designs were employed in the tests representing substandard and code-confonning columns, respectively The main variable in the experiments was the imposed displacement history. The deformation-based performance limits proposed for substandard columns by Eurocode 8 and ASCE/SEI 41 were found very conservative in view of the test results, which may lead to misleading results in the seismic risk a...

Performance of a Prestressed Concrete Pedestrian Bridge System under Equivalent Static Lateral Impact Loads
Baran, Eray; French, Catherine (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-08-01)
The resistance of prestressed concrete through-girder (PCTG) pedestrian bridges to lateral loads was studied in response to the increasing number of vehicular impacts in the United States. This research was motivated by the lack of reported studies analyzing the behavior of such bridges to lateral impact loads, as well as their potential vulnerability in comparison with bridges that are better able to redistribute and transfer locally applied impact loads through alternate load paths. Pedestrian bridges are...
Performance of seismic-isolated bridges with and without elastic-gap devices in near-fault zones
Dicleli, Murat (2008-05-01)
In this paper, the efficiency of providing elastic-gap devices (EGDs) to improve the performance of seismic- isolated bridges (SIBs) in near-fault (NF) zones is investigated. The device is primarily made of an assembly of circular rubber bearings and steel plates to provide additional elastic stiffness to the SIB upon closure of a gap. The EDG is intended to function at two performance levels under service and maximum considered design level (MCDL) NF earthquakes to reduce isolator displacements while keepi...
