State of practice in seismic rehabilitation of buildings and fragility analysis of RC columns retrofitted with FRP
The first part of this thesis is a report intended to document the type of works for seismic building retrofits that are taking place in the state of California, where the legislation mandates retrofits of existing ...
Seismic analysis and evaluation of a building retrofitted with new RC walls
This thesis presents a study on the seismic performance of a retrofitted concrete building in Mexico City. The original lateral force resisting system consisted of reinforced concrete (RC) columns supporting waffle slabs ...
Bar development and tension lap splice of high-strength reinforcing steel
High-strength reinforcing steel with yield strengths up to 100 ksi have been implemented in design code, but it is not common in practical bridge design. High-strength reinforcement bears opportunities for higher load-carrying ...
Structural assessment of reinforced concrete infrastructure
The assessment of reinforced concrete infrastructure is a growing challenge facing the structural engineering community. Traditional strategies for assigning bridge condition states rely on subjective experience and ...
