  1. Vulkanos and Earthquakes

    30 Jul 2012 | Publications

    really interesting

  2. Large-Scale Cyclic and Hybrid Simulation Testing and Development of a Controlled-Rocking Steel Building System With Replaceable Fuses

    30 Jul 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Matthew Eatherton

    Current U.S. building codes and earthquake engineering practice utilize inelasticity in the seismic force resisting system to dissipate seismic energy and protect against collapse. Inelasticity in conventional structures can lead to structural damage distributed throughout the building and …

  3. Investigation of Grouted Helical Pier based Foundation Rehabilitation

    22 Oct 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Tara Hutchinson, Dan Wilson

      This data report describes the centrifuge test that was performed in June 2006 on the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of the test was to develop the instruments and materials for in-flight grouting and simulate and study the working mechanisms and properties of grouted …

  4. Hybrid Simulation Evaluation of Innovative Steel Braced Framing System

    25 Feb 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Bozidar Stojadinovic, T.Y. Yang, Jack Moehle

    Conventional concentrically braced steel frames are not capable of redistributing  large unbalanced vertical forces caused by brace buckling through the system.  This creates many design challenges to engineers. In order to retain the advantages of providing efficient stiffness and …

  5. Anchorage Detailing Effects on Lateral Deformation Components of R/C Shear Walls

    26 May 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Benton Johnson

    Structural walls, or shear walls, are elements used to resist lateral loads, such as those generated by wind and earthquakes. Structural walls are considerably deeper than typical beams or columns. This attribute gives structural walls considerable in-plane stiffness which makes structural walls …

  6. Performance of T-shaped Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls under Multi-Directional Loading

    26 May 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Beth Brueggen

    The study described in this thesis was a key component of a larger, collaborative project involving researchers from the University of Minnesota (Narina Jung, Ben Johnson), Iowa State University (Sri Sritharan, Jon Waugh, Sriram Aaleti), University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (Ricardo Lopez) and a …

  7. UCD/CGMDR-05/03 Collaborative Research: Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces - Centrifuge Data Report for CLM01

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Christopher Meehan, James Duncan, Ross Boulanger

    This document describes a centrifuge test that was performed using the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of this test was to measure the amount of displacement that occurs during earthquake shaking along a preformed slickensided clay surface. The recorded data can be used to evaluate …

  8. UCD/CGMDR-05/04 Collaborative Research: Dynamic Behavior of Slickensided Surfaces - Centrifuge Data Report for CLM02

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Christopher Meehan, James Duncan, Ross Boulanger

    This document describes a centrifuge test that was performed using the UC Davis geotechnical centrifuge. The purpose of this test was to measure the amount of displacement that occurs during earthquake shaking along a preformed slickensided clay surface. The recorded data can be used to evaluate …

  9. Development of a Direct Test Method for Dynamically Assessing the Liquefaction Resistance of Soils In Situ

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Brady Cox

    This dissertation details work conducted by researchers from the University of Texas at Austin aimed toward the development and implementation of a new in-situ liquefaction testing technique. This technique is an active method that may be used to directly evaluate the liquefaction resistance of …

  10. Experimental Investigation of a Full-scale Flat-plate Reinforced Concrete Structure Subjected to Cyclic Lateral Loading in the Inelastic Range of Response

    05 Jun 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Damon Fick

    Reinforced concrete flat-plate construction is a popular building type because of the simple formwork required for construction and the clearance that is provided for mechanical and electrical equipment. During the period 1950 through 1980, buildings using the flat-plate for the lateral-force …
