Strong motion duration influence on nonlinear seismic response.
The preferred representation of seismic hazard in structural design and assessment continues to be based on the elastic response spectrum. Even when dynamic time history analyses are required, the acceleration time histories ...
Ambient vibration measurements to estimate site fundamental periods in Aguadilla and Aguada, PR
Considering the high risk of seismic activity of the island of Puerto Rico, this research is aimed at determining the fundamental natural periods of the soil deposits in two areas, downtown Aguadilla and the Espinal ...
Seismic soil pressures on rigid walls subjected to pulse-like earthquake ground motions
Pulse-like earthquakes are believed to impose larger structural demands on structures due to the sudden release of seismic energy. This can cause concern in areas that are near fault due to the possibility of structures ...
