Seismic Damage Avoidance
BeschreibungThis book provides a comprehensive and straightforward procedure for designing precast prestressed hollow core wall which is subjected to earthquake excitation. These wall panels without transverse reinforcement bars are designed to resist seismic loading as replacement for fixed-base precast wall panels in the construction of warehouse/industrial buildings. A design procedure for warehouse building using precast hollow core walls under Damage Avoidance Design (DAD) is proposed in this book. In addition, a risk assessment under Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering (PBEE) is evaluated in this book using the latest computational tool known as Incremental Dynamic Analysis (IDA). A comparative risk assessment between precast hollow core walls and fixed-base monolithic precast wall panel is also performed.
