An elastic analysis of an existing 20-storey reinforced concrete moment resisting frame divided in 3 blocks shows that beams supported on corbels of the adjacent block at the expansion joint loose their support when each independent block vibrate on its own under earthquake. Different reconnection hypothesis were considered, ranging from fixing totally each block to the adjacent one to more flexible options leaving some free relative move between blocks. An elastic modal superposition followed by a pushover analysis considering the final reconnection principle were made. The degrees of freedom of the joint reconnections were observed to be an important parameter. The solution found leaves a free relative rotational move between blocks and a flexible translational movement, so that forces at the connection do not become uselessly high. The springs used (long tie rods) work essentially elastically so that no permanent relative displacement exists between blocks after an earthquake. [less ▲]

In this study, the seismic design and performance of composite steel-concrete frames are studied. The new Eurocode 4 and Eurocode 8, which are in a preliminary stage at the moment, are employed for the design of six composite steel-concrete frames. The deficiencies of the codes and the clauses that cause difficulties to the designer are discussed. The inelastic static pushover analysis is employed for obtaining the response of the frames and the overstrength factors. The evaluation of the response modification factor takes place by performing incremental time-history analysis up to the satisfaction of the yield and collapse limit states in order to investigate the conservatism of the code. The last purpose of this study is to investigate if elastically designed structures can behave in a dissipative mode. [less ▲]

The paper discusses the components of reduction factor to be accounted for design purposes. A parametric study of moment resisting steel frames (MRSF) designed according Eurocode 3 (EC3) and Eurocode 8 (EC8) is performed. The structural supply of the designed structures exceeds largely the seismic demand in spite of the fact that Ultimate Limit State (ULS) verification of EC8 for MRSF is not conservative. The structural performance is poorly correlated with ULS verification of EC8 but with others code restrains and with parameters like base shear ratio or fundamental period. The practice that deduces the values of reduction factor on the observation of structural performance under past earthquake is not rationally based. This practice tends to make useless the ULS verification for structural systems like MRSF, in which structural performance is poorly correlated with the ULS verification. This practice is responsible of the unsafe values of reduction factors assigned in the seismic codes. [less ▲]

To provide quantitative information on the ground acceleration necessary to break speleothems, laboratory measurements on samples of stalagmite have been performed to study their failure in bending. Due to their high natural frequencies, speleothems can be considered as rigid bodies to seismic strong ground motion. Using this simple hypothesis and the determined mechanical properties (a minimum value of 0.4 MPa for the tensile failure stress has been considered), modelling indicates that horizontal acceleration ranging from 0.3 m/s(2) to 100 m/s(2) (0.03 to 10g) are necessary to break 35 broken speleothems of the Hotton cave for which the geometrical parameters have been determined. Thus, at the present time, a strong discrepancy exists between the peak accelerations observed during earthquakes and most of the calculated values necessary to break speleothems. One of the future research efforts will be to understand the reasons of the defined behaviour. It appears fundamental to perform measurements on in situ speleothems. [less ▲]

The report presents research activities on the seismic behaviour of composite steel concrete moment frames co-ordinated in Europe within the ICONS project. Research has been focused on problems of ductility and resistance in the case where the connections of the steel parts are full strength "rigid". Tests have been realised on subassemblages, on elements, on a plane frame and on a 3-D frame. Some tests were run quasi statically, others on shaking tables. Numerical modelling was done in parallel. Summary reports of these activities are presented. Based on that research and on literature data, for the structural types and elements other than those of typical European composite moment frames, design rules have been developed. These rules, which are now under implementation within the 2001 EN version of Eurocode 8 are presented with comments and reference to background. [less ▲]

A benchmark study on seimic risk has been realised on Liege, Belgium, at the request of the Regional Authority. Its main interest is that it deals with the seismic risk of a city in a low seismicity region. The work involves a hazard study based on the recently defined map of seismicity of Belgium, the definition of the individual vulnerability of buildings, the combination of hazard and vulnerability to define risk and static evaluations of connecting details in non engineered structures. For the evaluation of vulnerability, a simplified screening method has been defined. The main conclusion is that in regions where the Peak Ground Acceleration is higher than 0,1g and the building stock does not possess good structural quality, the seismic risk may be considered high.
