Title: Evaluation of Seismic Performance Factors and Pedestal Shear Strength in Elevated Water Storage Tanks

Author(s): Reza Kianoush

Publication: CRC

Volume:

Issue:

Appears on pages(s):

Keywords: axial compression, shear strength, shear, rc pedestals, performance

Date: 12/1/2010

Abstract:
A finite element approach was employed along with nonlinear static analysis in order to investigate the effect of axial compression on shear strength as well as the effect of wall opening on the seismic response characteristics of RC pedestals in elevated water tanks. The seismic performance factors were also evaluated in this study.
