Abstract

Title: NSF RAPID: Post-Earthquake Monitoring of Buildings in Chile Using NEES@UCLA Resources: NSF RAPID CMMI-1040574 (NEES-2012-0941)

Year Of Curation: 2012

Description: Between March 13th and 28th 2010, a team of U.S. researchers, professionals, and local collaborators instrumented four reinforced concrete buildings in Santiago, Chile, to measure aftershock response data following the Feb 27, 2010 MW 8.8 earthquake. The selected buildings represent typical structural designs for both countries, e.g. high rise office buildings with large office space and inner core shear walls or mid rise residential shear wall buildings. Two of the instrumented buildings were undamaged, whereas one building suffered only minor non-structural damage and the fourth exhibited significant structural damage such as column buckling and shear wall cracking. Instrumentation consisted mainly of uni-axial and tri-axial Episensor accelerometers as well as some displacement transducers. Data were recorded using Quanterra Q330 digitizers. Several aftershocks were captured during a period of one month. (
