    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper, results of Ground-Penetrating Radar measurements performed at the church of the Jesuits in Valletta, Malta, are presented. This experimental activity was carried out during an International Training School ...
  • GPR analysis of water content in concrete specimen - laboratory test 

    Santos Assunçao, Sonia; Krishna, Shanker; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega (2017)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) in civil engineering context are popular and it has been widely used to characterize the media in terms of structural arrangement and pathologies. This work presents some tests ...

    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    The collapse of a tunnel and the damage in a second tunnel during the construction works, forced to the assessment of the ground in the front tunnel of the second structure, in order to avoid additional problems. The first ...
  • Ground penetrating radar assessment of historical buildings: the study of the roofs, columns and ground of Santa Maria del Mar, in Barcelona / GPR assessment of the basilica Santa Maria del Mar 

    Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Clapes Boixader, Jaime (IEEE Press, 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Santa Maria del Mar is a magnificent gothic church built between 1329 and 1383 in a neighbourhood outside the city walls, over the remains of a more ancient church. The inhabitants of this district (merchants, downloaders ...
  • 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 ...
