(2013-08-22)The damage to reinforced concrete (RC) bridges observed in the 1971 San Fernando, 1994 Northridge, and 1995 Kobe earthquakes prompted significant research efforts within the earthquake engineering community. Strides were ...
(2011-08-25)This dissertation presents a methodology for the refined, reliable, integrated and versatile assessment of the impact of earthquakes on civil infrastructure systems by using free-field and structural instrumentation as ...
Large-Scale Cyclic and Hybrid Simulation Testing and Development of a Controlled-Rocking Steel Building System with Replaceable Fuses (2010-08-20)Current U.S. building codes and earthquake engineering practice utilize inelasticity in the seismic force resisting system to dissipate seismic energy and protect against collapse. Inelasticity in conventional structures ...
Model-based feedforward-feedback control for real-time hybrid simulation of large-scale structures (2012-05-22)Extreme dynamic events continue to demonstrate the fragility of civil infrastructure worldwide. Over the years, design codes and computational tools have come to reflect an improved understanding of dynamic loads and ...
Monitoring, Modeling, and Hybrid Simulation An Integrated Bayesian-based Approach to High-fidelity Fragility Analysis (Newmark Structural Engineering Laboratory. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 2015-05)Fragility functions are one of the key technical ingredients in seismic risk assessment. The derivation of fragility functions has been extensively studied in the past; however, large uncertainties still exist, mainly due ...
(2015-01-21)Hybrid simulation has emerged as a relatively accurate and efficient tool for the evaluation of structural response under earthquake loading. In the conventional hybrid simulation, the responses of few critical components ...
(2011-08-25)The widespread and unexpected damage to welded connections during recent earthquakes led to the investigation of alternatives for the construction of steel frames in seismic areas. Bolted semi-rigid connections have been ...
