An Experimental Study on Fiber Reinforced Elastomeric Bearing
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 1~6
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.001
In order to study the characteristics of fiber reinforced bearing, the steel plates of laminated rubber bearing were replaced with fibers which have same effects of steel plates. The comparison of vertical test and horizontal test of laminated rubber bearing and fiber reinforced bearing shows that the effective damping of fiber reinforced bearing is higher than laminated rubber bearing. This result implies the high energy dissipation ability of fiber reinforced bearing under earthquake excitation. These fiber reinforced bearing can be applied to the low-coast building.
Sliding Conditions at the Interface between Soil and Underground Structure
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 7~11
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.007
By focusing on the resonant vibration mode of soil-underground structure system, this paper obtained dynamic soil stiffness and easy sliding conditions at the interface between soil and underground structure. Multi-step method is employed to isolate two primary causes of soil-structure interaction. Mohr-Coulomb criterion is used to determine the threshold level of the sliding. To find out the conditions the interface slides easily, parametric studies are performed about the factors governing sliding, which are the size and location of underground structures, ground condition, the configuration of surface deposit and interface friction coefficients.
Radar Imaging of Concrete Specimens with Improved Resolution Using Expanded Frequency Bandwidth
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 13~21
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.013
Frequency bandwidth has been combined to determine adequate frequency bandwidth which is necessary for nondestructive testing when using inverse synthetic aperture radar(ISAR). For imaging inside of concrete specimens using radar, the principles of radar and signal processing are discussed. Experimental data obtained from radar measurement of three different concrete specimens at two different frequency bandwidths of 2∼3.4 GHz, 3.4∼5.8 GHz and these two frequencies are combined to obtain improved imagery. A signal processing scheme has been implemented to visualize inside concrete specimens. The influence of frequency bandwidth was analyzed in nondestructive testing by changing frequency bandwidth for concrete specimen.
Analytical Study on the Size Effect Influencing Inelastic Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Bridge Piers
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 23~31
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.023
The purpose of this study is to investigate the size effect on inelastic behavior of reinforced concrete bridge piers. A computer program, named RCAHEST(reinforced concrete analysis in higher evaluation system technology), for the analysis for reinforced concrete structures was used. Material nonlinearity is taken into account by comprising tensile, compressive and shear models of cracked concrete and a model of reinforcing steel. The smeared crack approach is incorporated. In boundary plane at which each member with different thickness is connected, local discontinuous deformation due to the abrupt change in their stiffness can be taken into account by introducing interface element. The effect of number of load reversals with the same displacement amplitude has been also taken into account to model the reinforcing steel. To determine the size effect on bridge pier inelastic behavior, a 1/4-scale replicate model was also loaded for comparison with the full-scale bridge pier behavior.
Evaluation of the Seismic Safely of Concrete Gravity Dams
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 33~41
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.033
Recently, the seismic safety evaluation of concrete gravity dams is raised due to the damage or the failure of dams occurred by the 1995 Kobe earthquake, the 1999 Taiwan earthquake, etc. Failre of dam may incur loss of life and properties around the dam as well as damage to dam structure itself. Recently, there has been growing much concerns about `earthquake-resistance` or `seismic safety`of existing concrete gravity dams designed before current seismic design provisions were implemented. This research develops three evaluation levels for seismic safety of concrete gravity dams on the basis of the evaluation method of seismic safety of concrete gravity dams in U.S.A., Japan, Canada, and etc. level 1 is a preliminary evaluation which is for purpose f screening. Level 2 is a pseudo-static evaluation on the basis of the seismic intensity method. Finally, level 3 is a detail evaluation by the dynamic analysis. Evaluation results on existing concrete gravity dam on operation showed good seismic performance under the designed artificial earthquake.
Deformation Based Seismic Design of Asymmetric Wall Structures
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 43~53
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.043
Current torsional provisions focus n restricting torsional effect of asymmetric wall structures by proportioning strength of wall based on the traditional assumption that stiffness and strength are independent. Recent studies have pointed out that stiffness of structural wall is dependent on the strength. This implies that actual stiffness of walls can be determined only after torsional design is finished and current torsional provisions may result in significant errors. To overcome this shortcoming, this paper proposes deformation based torsional design for asymmetric wall structures. Contrary to the current torsional provisions, deformation-based torsional design uses displacement and rotation angle as design parameters and calculates base shear for inelastic torsional response directly. Main purpose of deformation based torsional design is not to restrict torsional response but to ensure intended torsional mechanism according to the capacity design concept. Because displacement and rotation angle can be used as performance criteria indicating performance level of asymmetric structures, this method can be applied to the performance based seismic design effectively.
The Nonlinear Behavior Characteristics of the 3D Mixed Building Structures with Variations in the Lower Stories
Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea, volume 6, issue 1, 2002, Pages 55~62
DOI : 10.5000/EESK.2002.6.1.055
The upper wall-lower frame structures(mixed building structures) are usually composed of shear wall structure in the upper part of structure which is used as residential space and frame structure in the lower part of structure which is used as commercial space centering around the transfer system in the lower part of structure. These structures are characteristics of stiffness irregularity, mass irregularity, and vertical geometric irregularity. The purpose of this study is to investigate the nonlinear response characteristics and the seismic capacity of mixed building structures when the number of stories in the lower frame is varied. The conclusions of this study are following. 1) As the result of push-over analysis of structure such as roof drift(i.e. roof displacement/structural height) and base shear coefficient, when the stories of lower frame system are increased, base shear coefficient is decreased, but roof drift is increased. 2) According to an increase in stories of the lower fame, story drift and ductility ratio of upper wall system are decreased and behavior of upper wall system is closed to elastic. 3) When the stories of lower frame system are increased, the excessive story drift is concentrated on the lower frame system.
