      Effect of yield penetration on column plastic hinge length 

      Megalooikonomou, K. G.; Tastani, S. P.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J. (2018)
      The required confined zone in critical regions of columns and piers undergoing lateral sway during earthquakes is related to the plastic hinge length where inelastic deformation and damage develops. The exact definition ...

      A mechanistic approach in defining inelastic rotation capacity of RC columns 

      Megalooikonomou, K. G.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J.; Tastani, S. P. (National Technical University of Athens, 2017)
      When a reinforced concrete (RC) column is subjected to lateral sway as a result of earthquake action, the large strain demand in the end sections is supported by development of strains in the anchorage. This causes the ...
