    Díaz, Sergio Alberto; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; González Drigo, José Ramón; Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Non-linear dynamic analysis and the damage index of Park-Ang have been often used to assess expected seismic damage to a structure. Depending on the size of the structure and the duration of the record, the computational ...
  • Comparison among design solutions for precast buildings in medium-to-moderate seismicity zones

    The problem of classification and the use of robust methodologies in electronic nose sensor arrays applications are still open. Among the several steps in the developed method- ologies, it is clear that feature extraction ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 Abdulrahman Rasol; 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 ...
