Ranking Passive Seismic Control Systems by Their Effectiveness in Reducing Responses of High-Rise Buildings with Concrete Shear Walls Using Multiple-Criteria Decision Making

In recent decades, the dual systems of steel moment-resisting frames and RC shear walls have found extensive application as lateral load-resisting systems for high-rise structures in seismically active areas. This paper investigated the effectiveness of tuned mass damper (TMD), viscous damper, friction damper, and the lead-core rubber bearing in controlling the damage and seismic response […]

Numerical modeling strategy for predicting the response of RC walls using Timoshenko theory

Different macro models have been proposed in the past decades for simulating the behavior of concrete shear walls because of their significant role in the seismic performance of urban buildings. In this paper, the ability of Timoshenko’s beam theory to evaluate the behavior of slender and moderate-aspect-ratio concrete shear walls is evaluated. For this purpose, […]

The Effect of Soil around the Basement Walls on the Base Level of Braced Framed Tube System

The Effect of Soil around the Basement Walls on the Base Level of Braced Framed Tube System According to the 2800 standard, the Iranian code of practice for seismic-resistant design of buildings, the base level refers to the level at which it is assumed that the horizontal movement of the ground is transmitted to the […]
