SEISMIC STRENGTHENING OF REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMNS WITH STRAIGHT CARBON FIBRE REINFORCED POLYMER (CFRP) ANCHORS
(Quake CoRE, 2016)
After consulting key members of the industry (BBR ConTech, Opus International, Fulton Hogan and Beca) it was found that, while the most common failure of RC columns is shear failure, the shear strengthening of RC columns ...
A Case Study of Successful Performance of Retrofitted Masonry Substations
(Quake CoRE, 2016)
Discrete Element Modelling of Unreinforced Masonry Buildings and Parts
Post-earthquake inspections have highlighted that out-of-plane failure of unreinforced masonry (URM) walls is one of the most life threatening hazards related to earthquakes. Connections between structural elements and ...
Using the Macroelement Method to Seismically Assess Complex URM Buildings
Existing unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings are often composed of traditional construction techniques, with poor connections between walls and diaphragms that results in poor performance when subjected to seismic actions. ...
Decision-Making for Resilient Solutions Associated with Heritage, Earthquake-Prone Buildings
he 2016 Building (Earthquake Prone Building) Amendment Act aims to improve the system for managing earthquake-prone buildings. The proposed changes to the Act were precipitated by the Canterbury earthquakes, and the need ...
Unreinforced Masonry Churches in New Zealand Towards a Holistic Framework for the Identification of Optimal Seismic Retrofit Interventions
Unreinforced masonry churches in New Zealand, similarly to everywhere else in the word have proven to be highly vulnerable to earthquakes, because of their particular construction features. The Canterbury (New Zealand) ...
Economics of Strengthening & Redeveloping Provincial Heritage Buildings for Adaptive Reuse Purposes
The Adaptive Reuse approach [1,2] focuses on changing the use of an existing building to enable it to serve a new function based on the current needs of the owner and the host community, in order to preserve its desired ...
Improving Earthquake building Resilience in Provincial Towns - Adaptive Reuse Approach
Abstract A growing acceptance that property redevelopment and sustainable town centre regeneration is a responsive strategy to the regulatory demands of seismic strengthening in NZ. This project uses a precinct approach ...
Toolkit of Policies, Programs and Incentives for Resilience and Sustainable Reuse of Heritage Buildings
This project examined alternative polies and incentives that could be combined to make adaptive reuse of heritage buildings become commercially viable. Targeting four core strategic aspects of building/facilities management ...
