Performance-based design of secondary substructures
conference contributionposted on 09.06.2017, 11:30 by Stavros Kasinos
The dynamic analysis and performance of secondary subsystems in buildings and industrial constructions is a topic of broad engineering interest. Mechanical, electrical or architectural components must survive strong earthquakes to facilitate emergency and recovery services in the aftermath, limiting human and economic losses; while no damage should happen in case of less severe events. With current design methods lacking the necessary rigour and robustness, the project aims to develop new and more efficient analysis procedures for secondary substructures subjected to dynamic excitations.
