    • An alternative approach to consider the effect of seismic directionality 

      Díaz Carrasco, Sergio; Pinzón, Luis A.; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, 2018-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      Recent researches have proven the importance of considering the seismic directionality effect. The performance of buildings subjected to earthquakes depends on its orientation respect to the seismic actions applied. This ...

      We analyze the case of a building that collapsed in a multifamily complex of Tlalpan borough in Mexico City during the 19 September 2017 Central Mexico earthquake. Despite having similar materials and similar structural ...
    • Seismic site classification from the horizontal-to-vertical response spectral ratios: use of the Spanish strong-motion database 

      Pinzón, Luis A.; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Macau, Albert; Carreño, Emilio; Alcalde Camino, Juan Manuel (2019-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      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 three-orthogonal as-recorded ...
