Bond and shear mechanics within reinforced concrete beam-column joints incorporating the slotted beam detail
(University of Canterbury. Civil & Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
The recent earthquakes in Christchurch have made it clear that issues exist with current RC frame design in New Zealand. In particular, beam elongation in RC frame buildings was widespread and resulted in numerous buildings ...
Seismic Assessment of Pre-1970s Reinforced Concrete Structure
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2005)
Reinforced concrete structures designed in pre-1970s are vulnerable under earthquakes due to lack of seismic detailing to provide adequate ductility. Typical deficiencies of pre-1970s reinforced concrete structures are (a) ...
Further experiments on the seismic performance of structural concrete beam-column joints designed in accordance with the principles of damage avoidance
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2006)
Recent research on jointed unbonded post-tensioned precast concrete frames has demonstrated their superior seismic resistance. Inelastic rotation generated during large earthquake motions is accommodated through gap opening ...
