  • Seismic safety assessment of historical structures using updated numerical models: the case of Mallorca cathedral in Spain 

    Elyamani, Ahmed; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Clapes Boixader, Jaime (Elsevier, 2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper presents an integrated approach aimed at assessing the seismic safety of Mallorca cathedral. This cathedral is an extraordinary historical construction dating back to the middle-ages. The experimental modal ...
  • Seismic risk in the city of Al Hoceima (north of Morocco) using the vulnerability index method, applied in Risk-UE project 

    Cherif, Seif-eddine; Chourak, Mimoun; Abed, Mohammed; Pujades Beneit, Lluís (2017-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Al Hoceima is one of the most seismic active regions in north of Morocco. It is demonstrated by the large seismic episodes reported in seismic catalogs and research studies. However, seismic risk is relatively high due to ...
  • Multifractality and autoregressive processes of dry spell lengths in Europe: an approach to their complexity and predictability 

    Lana Pons, Francisco Javier; Burgueño Rivero, August; Serra de Larrocha, Carina; Martínez Santafé, Maria Dolors (2017-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Dry spell lengths, DSL, defined as the number of consecutive days with daily rain amounts below a given threshold, may provide relevant information about drought regimes. Taking advantage of a daily pluviometric database ...
  • Buildings in Barcelona protected from railway-induced vibrations with base isolation 

    López Almansa, Francisco; Eskubi Ugarte, Ignacio; Araníbar, Hugo; Mas, Cristina; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Clapés Boixader, Jaume; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This work describes two mid-height RC base isolated buildings recently erected in Barcelona. Both buildings are located near the main railway station in Barcelona (Barcelona-Sants), thus undergoing dynamic excitations due ...
  • Steel moment-resisting frame retrofitted with hysteretic and viscous devices 

    Palazzo, Gustavo Luís; Calderón, Francisco; Roldán, Víctor; López Almansa, Francisco (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2014)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    Energy dissipators are a convenient option for earthquake–resistant retrofitting of buildings; when a construction incorporating these systems is shaken by a strong ground motion, the devices absorb most of the damaging ...
  • Steel frame with buckling-restrained braces subject to near and far-fault inputs 

    Palazzo, Gustavo Luís; Martín González, Pablo; Calderón, Francisco; Roldán, Víctor; Maldonado, Graciela; López Almansa, Francisco; Cahis Carola, Xavier (International Association for Earthquake Engineering, 2012)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    A great variety of passive energy dissipation systems have been proposed in the last decades to improve the seismic resistance of new and existing constructions. However, new numerical and experimental researches are needed ...
  • Seismic vulnerability analysis of steel buildings in Bogotá, Colombia 

    Montaña Peña, Miguel Angel; López Almansa, Francisco (International Association for Earthquake Engineering, 2012)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    A number of mid-height steel buildings have been erected recently in Bogotá. Their seismic risk might be high, given the new microzonation of Bogotá and the lack of previous studies; remarkably, the response reduction ...
  • Seismic vulnerability analysis of wide-beam buildings in Spain 

    Domínguez Santos, David Jesús; López Almansa, Francisco; Benavent Climent, Amadeo (International Association for Earthquake Engineering, 2012)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    A number of short-to-mid height RC buildings with wide beams have been constructed in moderate-seismicity areas of Spain. The seismic behavior in the direction of the wide beams appears to be deficient because of low lateral ...
  • Design energy spectra for Turkey 

    López Almansa, Francisco; Yazgan, Ahmet Utku; Benavent Climent, Amadeo (International Association for Earthquake Engineering, 2012)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This work proposes design energy spectra in terms of velocity, derived through linear dynamic analyses on Turkish registers and intended for regions with design peak acceleration 0.3 g or higher. In the long and mid period ...
  • Seismic retrofit of vulnerable buildings in Spain with hysteretic energy dissipators 

    Domínguez Santos, David Jesús; López Almansa, Francisco; Benavent Climent, Amadeo (Asociación Chilena de Sismología e Ingeniería Antisísmica, 2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In Spain, there are numerous vulnerable buildings, such as reinforced concrete frames with waffle slabs or wide beams. The use of hysteretic energy dissipators for seismic protection of wide-beam buildings is proposed. ...
