Study on Seismic Capacity Assessment of Existing RC Building by Using Pushover Analysis

For the most part, the infrastructure existing in Sudan is not structured or planned to withstand seismic forces. The study investigated the seismic damage in Khartoum , Sudan, to an existing 5-storey reinforced concrete structure. In the report , three performance standards were considered, which included immediate occupancy, life protection, and prevention of collapse. Using…

Achievements of Truss Models for Reinforced Concrete Structures: Advanced Study

Emerging Trends in Engineering Research and Technology Vol. 7  Achievements are presented for truss models of RC structures developed in previous years: 1. Two constitutive models, biaxial and triaxial, are based on regular trusses, with bars obeying nonlinear uniaxial σ-ε laws of material under simulation; both models have been compared with test results and show…
