Behaviour of three-dimensional concrete structures under concurrent orthogonal seismic excitations
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2007)
This thesis is a study into the response and seismic safety of three-dimensional multi-storey concrete structures under concurrent orthogonal seismic excitations. It employs the nonlinear time-history method as its analysis ...
Neotectonics, Seismic and Tsunami Hazards, Viti Levu, Fiji.
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2006)
Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji, is located in a seismically active area within the Fiji Platform - a remnant island arc that lies in a diffuse plate boundary zone between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates in ...
Passive and Semi-Active Tuned Mass Damper Building Systems.
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2007)
This thesis explores next generation passive and semi-active tuned mass damper (PTMD and SATMD) building systems for reducing the seismic response of tall structures and mitigating damage. The proposed structural configuration ...
Structure-Specific Probabilistic Seismic Risk Assessment
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2009)
This thesis addresses a diverse range of topics in the area of probabilistic seismic risk analysis of engineering facilities. This intentional path of diversity has been followed primarily because of the relatively new ...
