  • Identificación no lineal de movimientos sísmicos en el lecho rocoso ingenieril a partir de registros tomados en la superficie 

    Rodríguez Sánchez, Julio; López Almansa, Francisco; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto (Asociación Chilena de Sismología e Ingeniería Antisísmica, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En ingeniería sísmica, los registros disponibles suelen ser superficiales y, en consecuencia, los movimientos en las capas inferiores deben ser estimados conociendo el perfil estratigráfico del terreno; estos movimientos ...
  • Dynamic monitoring of a mid-rise building by real-aperture radar interferometer: advantages and limitations 

    Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; González Drigo, José Ramón; Luzi, Guido; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Pinzón Ureña, Luis (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, 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 ...
  • Increased seismic hazard in Barcelona (Spain) due to soil-building resonance effects 

    Pinzón Ureña, Luis; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Macau, Albert; Figueras Vila, Sara (Elsevier, 2019-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, previous microzonation studies in Barcelona (Spain) were revisited, and available data on the predominant periods of soils in the city were compiled to develop an updated microzonation map of the city. In ...
  • An efficient method for considering the directionality effect of earthquakes on structures 

    Pinzón Ureña, Luis; Díaz Carrasco, Sergio; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe (2019-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    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 nonlinear dynamic analysis (NLDA) is ...
  • A drift-correlated ground motion intensity measure: application to steel frame buildings 

    Pinzón Ureña, Luis; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Díaz Carrasco, Sergio (Elsevier, 2020-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Estimations of seismic risk in urban areas should include quantifications of the expected damage to civil structures subjected to earthquakes. In buildings, this quantification depends on the maximum inter-story drift ...
  • On the equal displacement aproximation for mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings 

    Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; González Drigo, José Ramón; Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban; Pinzón Ureña, Luis (Institute of Structural Analysis and Antiseismic Research School of Civil Engineering. National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The equal displacement approximation is a well-known procedure for estimating the non-linear behavior of structures subjected to earthquake ground motions. This procedure plays a significant role in current seismic design, ...
  • Remote ambient vibration measurements with real aperture radar to estimate buildings dynamic properties 

    Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban; González Drigo, José Ramón; Luzi, Guido; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; Pinzón Ureña, Luis (Institute of Structural Analysis and Antiseismic Research School of Civil Engineering. National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    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 installation of sensors, ...
  • Laboratory tests in rigid pavement 

    Rasol, Mezgeen; Pais, Jorge; Solla, Mercedes; Sossa Arancibia, Viviana Alejandra; Santos Assunçao, Sonia; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Deterioration of concrete structure is consequence of aging, applied loads and weathering. In this paper, several laboratory tests were presented, compared to computational models and a field test case study. The purpose ...
  • Dynamic soil-structure interaction analyses considering directionality effects 

    Pinzón Ureña, Luis; Mánica Malcom, Miguel Ánge; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban (Elsevier, 2020-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper investigates directionality effects of ground motions in the context of dynamic soil-structure interaction (DSSI) analyses. The problem addressed corresponds to a nonlinear soil deposit, overlaying firm ground, ...
  • Combining ground penetrating radar and seismic surveys in the assessment of cultural heritage buildings: The study of roofs, columns, and ground of the gothic church Santa Maria del Mar, in Barcelona (Spain) 

    Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega; Santos Assunçao, Sonia; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Clapés Boixader, Jaume; Sossa Arancibia, Viviana Alejandra (Wiley, 2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Combined non-destructive techniques are applied in the study of a historical building in Barcelona. Santa Maria del Mar is a magnificent Mediterranean gothic church built between 1329 and 1383. Two of the most important ...
  • Trends in condition monitoring for pitch bearings
