An Efficient Method for Considering the Directionality Effect of Earthquakes on Structures
ABSTRACT Recent research have proven the importance of considering the directionality effect on the expected seismic damage of structures. However, it demands a high computational effort if the
Directionality models from ground motions of Italy
Directionality effects on the expected strong ground motion in Italy are investigated. After a brief description of the directionality effect and the intensity measures involved, a wide Italian
Case Study of a Heavily Damaged Building during the 2016 MW 7.8 Ecuador Earthquake: Directionality Effects in Seismic Actions and Damage Assessment
In this work, the directionality effects during the MW 7.8 earthquake, which occurred in Muisne (Ecuador) on 16 April 2016, were analyzed under two perspectives. The first one deals with the
Seismic Site Classification from the Horizontal-to-Vertical Response Spectral Ratios: Use of the Spanish Strong-Motion Database
Normally, the average of the horizontal-to-vertical (H/V) ratios of the 5% damped response spectra of ground motions is used to classify the site of strong-motion stations. In these cases, only the
Dynamic Monitoring of a Mid-Rise Building by Real-Aperture Radar Interferometer: Advantages and Limitations
TLDR
Remote and in situ techniques to estimate the dynamic response of a building to ambient vibration are reported: data acquired through a real-aperture radar (RAR) interferometer and conventional accelerometers are analyzed, and RAR may be an interesting and useful tool after strong earthquakes.
REMOTE AMBIENT VIBRATION MEASUREMENTS WITH REAL-APERTURE RADAR TO ESTIMATE BUILDINGS DYNAMIC PROPERTIES
The use of sensors to obtain the dynamic properties of structures by means of ambient vibrations has become a common practice. However, conventional and more extensively used methods require the
