Description

Title:Seismic Assessment Of RC Structures Considering Vertical Ground Motion
Author(s):Kim, Sung Jig; Elnashai, Amr S.

Ground Motion
Abstract:This report presents an investigation of the effect of vertical ground motion on RC structures studied through a combined analytical-experimental research approach. The analytical study investigated the effect of vertical ground motion on RC bridges and buildings considering various geometric configurations. For the experimental investigation, sub-structured pseudodynamic (SPSD) tests and cyclic static tests with different constant axial loads were employed using the Multi-Axial Full-Scale Sub-Structured Testing and Simulation (MUST-SIM) Facility.
