Abstract text:
The paper presents the results of a comparative study on the behavior of structures to seismic action in the case of a group of three buildings with mixed structure of spatial frames and reinforced concrete walls calculated separately and together in the hypothesis of a common foundation. They are located on a site in Focşani, Vrancea, a seismic area characterized by land acceleration of 0.40 g. On the site studied the 3 buildings have different height regimes. Two of them with a height of up to 30 m have the shape of the letter L in the plan. They are separated by vertical joints but with a common general foundation. The results show the importance of structural evaluation in different modelling scenarios on separate structures and on a complete model highlighting the differences between these approaches.
Key Words:
RC structure; seismic behavior; common foundation
