In the 1980s the term "constructability" evolved in the USA. The proponents of this concept believe that constructability, which embraces both design and management functions, is comprehensive in facilitating construction ...
Assessment of the behaviour factor for the seismic design of reinforced concrete structural walls according to SANS 10160 : part 4
(South African Institution of Civil Engineering, 2012-04)
Reinforced concrete structures, designed according to proper capacity design guidelines, can deform inelastically without loss of strength. Therefore, such structures need not be designed for full elastic seismic demand, ...
Rocking shear wall foundations in regions of moderate seismicity
(South African Institution of Civil Engineering, 2013-10)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This paper presents a study which investigates the feasibility of a concept to reduce the size of shear wall foundations for earthquake forces in regions of moderate seismicity. The approach is to allow ...
