      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 ...

      Simplified method for rapid seismic assessment of older R.C. buildings 

      Pardalopoulos, S. I.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J.; Lekidis, V. A. (2018)
      After several years of progress in earthquake design procedures, existing reinforced concrete buildings that fall short of modern standards still represent the vast majority of the built environment. Poorly reinforced ...
