Title: Technical Committee on Seismic Resistance of Pilotis Structures and Rigid Frame Viaducts and the Seismic Design (Soft-story Design)
Author(s): Kazuo SUZUKI, Manabu YOSHIMURA. Norio INOUE, Hiroshi KURAMOlO, Yukihiro TANIMURA, Tomohisa MUKAI
Appears on pages(s): 21-48
Keywords: Pilotis structure, retrofitting method, rigid-frame viaduct, seismic isolation, seismic safety, vibration control
Abstract:During the 1995 Hyogoken-Nambu Earthquake, pilotis buildings suffered greater damage than other concrete buildings. Among civil structures, damage to rigid-frame viaducts was also notable. Subsequent earthquake-resisting measures have not been sufficiently progressed for these structures. AS it stands, engineers are still struggling for countermeasures. The Committee squarely addressed this subject, explored effective solutions, and presented techniques to achieve such solutions.
