## 1544Early Age Property Monitoring

Compared to normal concrete, early age property develops very rapidly for HPC. A great amount of hydration products are produced in a relatively short period. After that only a little change can be observed. Thus, monitoring of early age property is very important to understand the setting and hardening processes of HPC, which has a great impact on the final workability, mechanical properties, and durability. Development of early age properties and strength gain in HPC are intimately related to...

As noted above, wood frame structures tend to be mostly low rise (one to three stories, occasionally four stories). The following discussion of the seismic performance of wood buildings is drawn from several sources. In the next few paragraphs, we provide an overview of wood construction and performance drawn from FEMA 154 (1988), followed by a limited discussion of performance in specific earthquakes drawn from various sources. Vertical framing may be of several types stud wall, braced post...

## 182 Damage as a Result of Problem Soils 1821 Liquefaction

One of the most common causes of damage to structures is the result of liquefaction to the surrounding soil. When loose saturated sands, silts, or gravel are shaken, the material consolidates, reducing the porosity and increasing pore water pressure. The ground settles, often unevenly, tilting and toppling structures that were formerly supported by the soil. During the 1955 Niigata, Japan, earthquake, several four-story apartment buildings toppled over due to liquefaction (Figure 18.4). These...

Aside from the main components such as the girders or the floor structure, some other parts such as bearings (shoes), expansion joints, guard railings, drainage paths, lighting, and sound-proofing walls also make up the structure of a bridge. Each plays a minor part but provides an essential function. Drains flush rain water off and wash away dust. Guard railings and lights add to the esthetic quality of the design as well as providing their obvious original functions. A sound-proofing wall may...

Soil-structure interaction modifies the ground-input motion at the foundation. By taking advantage of soil-structure interaction, structures can be protected during earthquakes. Frank Lloyd Wright's 1915 Imperial Tokyo Hotel survived the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake because he built his foundation in 70 ft of weak clay. During the earthquake, the ground underneath moved violently while his hotel (effectively isolated by this plastic material) remained relatively immobile. Similarly, a common...

## 1812 Structural Damage

Every day, regions of high seismicity experience many small earthquakes. However, structural damage does not usually occur until the magnitude approaches 5.0. Most structural damage during earthquakes is caused by the failure of the surrounding soil or from strong shaking. Damage also results from surface ruptures, the failure of nearby lifelines, or the collapse of more vulnerable structures. We consider these effects secondary because they are not always present during an earthquake. However,...

Failure occurs when sufficient plastic hinges have formed for a collapse...

## 341 Introduction

Fatigue and fracture are two important limit states that need to be checked in the design and evaluation of structures. Fatigue is the formation of a crack due to cyclic loading. The fatigue limit state is defined as the development of a through-thickness crack. This is a serviceability limit state and does not necessarily mean that the structure is in danger of fracture or collapse. Fracture is the rupture in tension or rapid extension of a crack leading to gross deformation, loss of function...

ATC-40 also recommends changing the lateral load pattern to reflect the displaced shape of the building at the end of each phase of the analysis. It is also possible to consider degrading effects in the simplified procedure described above by reinitializing the analysis at the end of each phase and plotting a new capacity curve. Each new curve begins with a degraded system that accounts for the state of elements at the end of each phase. Figure 21.11b provides a conceptual view of three such...

For a structure with n levels, the force at diaphragm level x is given by the equation hx and hi, respectively, are the heights of levels x and i above the structure's base. These formula are based on the assumption that the structure is responding in its first mode, in pure sinusoidal motion, and that the mode shape is linear....

The moment values of a continuous beam obtained from structural analysis may be adjusted or redistributed according to guidelines set by ACI 8.4. Negative moment can be adjusted down or up, but not more than 1000et or 20 (see Notation section for et). After the negative moments are adjusted in a span, the positive moment must also be adjusted to maintain the statical equilibrium of the span (see Section 7.13.12). Redistribution of moment is permitted to account for the ductile behavior of...

## 1524 Chemical Admixtures Superplasticizer

Chemical admixtures are important and necessary components for the preparation of HPC. The concrete properties, both in fresh and hardened states, can be significantly modified or improved by chemical admixtures. In some countries, 70 to 80 of concrete contains one or more admixtures (88 in Canada, 85 in Australia, and 71 in the United States). It is thus important for civil engineers to be familiar with commonly used admixtures. Presently, many types of chemical admixtures are being used in...

The multiple cracking process eventually leads to homogenization of matrix cracks, that is, the end of multiple cracking at which the minimum crack spacing, determined by the interfacial bond properties, is reached.

## 1553Flexural Strength

Flexural strength is the strength of concrete under bending. In designing concrete pavements, flexural strength is often used because it better simulates what happens when a slab is loaded by a truck or other vehicle. Most general-use concrete has a flexural strength between 3.5 and 5 MPa. In general, a relationship exists between the compressive and flexural strengths of concrete. Concrete, which has a higher compressive strength, will have a correspondingly higher flexural strength. This...

2.6.1 Stress Resultants in the Shell Element A thin shell is defined as a shell with a thickness relatively small compared with its other dimensions. The primary difference between a shell and a plate is that the former has a curvature in the unstressed state, whereas the latter is assumed to be initially flat. The presence of initial curvature is of little consequence as far as flexural behavior is concerned. The membrane behavior, however, is affected significantly by the curvature. Membrane...

## 2413 Basic Concepts

The space frame can be formed on either a flat or a curved surface. The earliest form of space frame structure is single-layer grid. By adding intermediate grids and including rigid connection to the joist and girder framing system, the single-layer grid is formed. The major characteristic of grid construction is the omnidirectional spread of the load as opposed to the linear transfer of the load in an ordinary framing system. Since such load transfer is mainly by bending, for larger spans the...

For the seismic design of ductile reinforced concrete members. These more conservative limits were chosen because of the concern over the ductility of high-strength concrete members and the lack of reversed cyclic loading test results at the time the standards were written.

## 322Types of Bracing

Bracing used in structural systems generally serve two primary functions. They resist secondary loads on structures (e.g., wind bracing) and increase the strength of individual members by resisting deformation in the weakest direction 1 . For the latter case, structural bracing forces higher modes of deformation by providing resistance to lateral and or rotational displacement. This is achieved through axial, shear, and or flexural deformations of the bracing member. Diaphragms, for instance,...
