Title: Structure Mixture Response Of Buildings Due To Simulated Earthquake Loading
Author: Al Ansari, Mohammed S.
Abstract: This paper presents two case studies to evaluate the performance of the structure mixture theory in the earthquake response analysis of buildings. In the first case study, the actual earthquake responses of the two-story reinforced concrete building, which was tested at the University of California at Berkeley, were compared to those obtained using the structure mixture theory. In the second case study, the seven-story reinforced concrete building, which was tested as a part of the US-Japan Cooperative Earthquake Program, was considered. Both case studies showed that the structure mixture theory results were very close to experimental results. The mean differences between the maximum roof displacements obtained experimentally in the first and second case studies and those obtained using the structure mixture theory were found to be equal to 3.5% and 3.2%, respectively.
