Abstract

Project description:
-Examine engineered buildings that suffered damage
-Document damage and assess the observed seismic behavior
-Obtain design drawings and/or construction data
-Analyze the original structure using nonlinear transient dynamic analyses:
•Research software: ANSYS and OPENSEES
•Design office software: SAP2000 and PERFORM 3D
-Compare observed (real) to predicted (analytical) performance
-Evaluate current methods for seismic assessment
-Recommend improvements to building practice in Haiti
