January 1, 2010 - ASCE

Preface The purpose of this guide is to provide the reader with a set of examples related to the use of ASCE Standard 7, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI 7-05). The guide is also pertinent to users of the 2006 International Building Code (ICC 2006) because IBC...

Active Global Seismology: Neotectonics and Earthquake Potential of the Eastern Mediterranean Region
April 1, 2017 - WILEY

"Neotectonics involves the study of the motions and deformations of the Earth's crust that are current or recent in geologic time. The Mediterranean region is one of the most important regions for neotectonics and related natural hazards. This volume focuses on the neotectonics of the Eastern...

ACI SP-313 - Proceedings of the First ACI & JCI Joint Seminar: Design of Concrete Structures Against Earthquake and Tsunami Disasters
March 1, 2017 - ACI

Preface The First American Concrete Institute (ACI) and Japan Concrete Institute (JCI) joint seminar was conceived as a vehicle for promoting collaboration and cooperation between two organizations that are dedicated to the global advancement of concrete technology. In September 2012 ACI President...

February 1, 2009 - BRE

INTRODUCTION Traditional fire design procedures consider structural behaviour in terms of the performance of the element rather than the system. This is a consequence of relying on standard tests on isolated structural elements. Little consideration has been given to member interaction or to the...

ACI SP-187 - Seismic Response of Concrete Bridges
January 1, 1999 - ACI

INTRODUCTION Prior to the 1933 Long Beach earthquake there was no special consideration for seismic design of buildings or bridges in California. The severe damage to schools that resulted from that seismic event resulted in creation of the Structural Engineer license and a...

Earthquake Protection 2nd Edition
January 1, 2006 - WILEY

Since the publication of the successful first edition of Earthquake Protection there have been 110 lethal earthquakes, killing 130 000 people; there have also been significant developments in the field of earthquake risk management, particularly in the modelling and analysis of risk for insurance...

Seismic Design and Retrofit of Bridges Complete Document
January 1, 1996 - WILEY

Because of their structural simplicity, bridges tend to be particularly vulnerable to damage and even collapse when subjected to earthquakes or other forms of seismic activity. Recent earthquakes, such as the ones in Kobe, Japan, and Oakland, California, have led to a heightened...

ACI SP-205 - Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures
January 1, 2001 - ACI

PREFACE AND DEDICATION This Special Volume of the American Concrete Institute is dedicated to Alexander C. Scordelis, Professor Emeritus of the University of California at Berkeley, prominent structural engineer and educator. The 18 papers are written to honor Alexander Scordelis for...

API REPORT OSAPR 14 - Inelastic Cyclic Behavior of Tubular Braced Frames
April 18, 1980 - API

Abstract The behavior of one-sixth scale tubular steel frame specimens employing X-bracing for resisting cyclic lateral loads is studied experimentally. The imposed cyclic displacements applied in a quasi-static manner simulate the effects of intense ground motions due to an earthquake. An offshore...

API REPORT 80-26A - Acceleration Time Histories for Earthquake Analysis Studies of Offshore Structures
October 1, 1980 - API

INTRODUCTION The American Petroleum Institute (API) has initiated a research project for the analysis of the response of offshore structures under earthquake loading conditions (API PRAC project 80-26A). The scope of the investigation entails three dimensional time history dynamic analyses of a...

API REPORT 80-26B-1 - Stage 1 - Baseline Analysis Earthquake Analysis Studies for Offshore Stuctures
November 1, 1980 - API

1.0 INTRODUCTION--SCOPE OF WORK Under sponsorship of the American Petroleum Institute, a baseline seismic analysis of an example offshore drilling platform was performed by procedures consistent with current API RP 2A recommendations [1]. The work included a strength requirement response...
