Retrofit, Modeling, and Collapse Assessment of Buildings(1.0 PDH)

 

Presenter:
Halil Sezen, P.H.D., The Ohio State University 

ABSTRACT:

While the ductility and redundancy are critical for the transfer and redistribution of loads after the failure of a member, one of the main reasons for the collapse of buildings is insufficient design and detailing of columns. Shear failure and gravity load collapse of concrete columns with poor reinforcement detailing will be presented in a presentation conducted by The Ohio State Universities research department. As part of the research, nine existing steel, concrete and masonry buildings were tested by physically removing the first story columns or load bearing walls. From the field results and experimental analysis conducted in the laboratory, new reinforcement and potential column retrofit options have been identified. The presentation will hope to demonstrate the importance of reinforcement details in an effort to improve resistance against earthquakes and other hazards. In addition, a quick overview will be provided for current research projects at OSU.
