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 […]

Effect of Peripheral Wall Openings in Basement and Number of Basement Floors on the Base level of Braced Framed Tube System

Effect of Peripheral Wall Openings in Basement and Number of Basement Floors on the Base level of Braced Framed Tube System For seismic design, the base is defined as the level at which the seismic ground motion is considered to be transferred on to the structure. Although there are many factors affecting the base level, […]
