Simplified method for rapid seismic assessment of older R.C. buildings
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 ...
Collapse Fragility Curves for RC Buildings Exhibiting Brittle Failure Modes
Defining the collapse probability of existing nonseismically designed RC buildings is a challenge mainly due to the fact that its determination relies on the simulation of the brittle failure modes controlling the collapse ...
