Optimization of the Bearing Capacity of Shallow Foundation

Vahed Ghiasi; Fahime Sohrabi

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2022, , Pages 1-17

https://doi.org/10.22115/rer.2022.360789.1049

Abstract
  Excess soil stress may lead to an additional settlement or shear failure of the soil, which in both cases, causes damage to the structure. Therefore, geotechnical and structural engineers who design the foundation must evaluate the bearing capacity of the soil. Most of the foundations are implemented ...  Read More

Earth Dam Behavior under Earthquake Movements- An Overview

Vahed Ghiasi; Mehran Azami

Volume 4, Issue 1 , June 2022, , Pages 1-30

https://doi.org/10.22115/rer.2022.340458.1046

Abstract
  In this review article, we examine the behavior of earthen dams under earthquake movements. Earthen dams perform satisfactorily when exposed to strong earthquakes. Their performance is usually related to the nature of the soil used for the structure. Most well-constructed earthen dams can significantly ...  Read More

Performance Evaluation of RC Building Subjected to Repeated Earthquake Load

Sachin Popat Patil; Jagadish G Kori

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2021, , Pages 1-20

https://doi.org/10.22115/rer.2022.346922.1047

Abstract
  This study evaluates the performance of an RC frame structure using nonlinear static and nonlinear dynamic analysis procedures. To achieve this objective, five-moment resisting frames with 4,8,12,16,20 storied buildings were analyzed and designed following the guidelines of the seismic codes was subjected ...  Read More

A Study of Nonlinear Behavior of Multistoried Structure for Repeated Earthquake

Sachin Popat Patil; Jagadish G Kori

Volume 2, Issue 2 , December 2020, , Pages 17-29

https://doi.org/10.22115/rer.2021.284552.1041

Abstract
  According to current practices in earthquake engineering, and as per guidelines of codes the multistoried structures are analyzed and designed only for a single, rare design earthquake. In reality, most of the locations are affected by multiple earthquakes within short time intervals, also the repeated ...  Read More
