Periodos fundamentales de sitio utilizando microtemblores: comparación con otros métodos y aplicación a Mayagüez, Puerto Rico
Most of the earthquake damage is caused by the amplification due to local geological conditions of the seismic waves propagating from the bedrock. A simple and efficient way to characterize the geological conditions is the ...
Evaluación computacional de la efectividad del método lineal equivalente para la estimación de la respuesta inelástica de pórticos de hormigón resistentes a momento
This thesis examined an approximate method to calculate the nonlinear seismic response of structures known as the Equivalent Linear Model (ELM) which seeks to approximate the true nonlinear response through a series of ...
Determinación de períodos fundamentales del suelo mediante vibración ambiental en las comunidades de Jardines del Caribe y La Playa, Puerto Rico
Due to the seismic risk of Puerto Rico, this project was conducted to estimate the fundamental periods of vibration of the soil deposits in the areas of Jardines del Caribe and La Playa, respectively communities of Mayagüez ...
Ground vibration measurements: study case of simultaneous HVSR and SASW for site characterization
In civil engineering, the properties of the soils are important for design and construction of a project. Therefore, it is necessary to know the different properties of the soil layers, the hydraulic and mechanical, so ...
Assessment of directional combination rules for the seismic analysis of nuclear power plant structures
To assure the safety of Nuclear Power Plant structures, it is crucial to design them in a way that guarantees the continuous function of systems, structures, and components (SSC) after the seismic event has passed. Seismic ...
