Seismic Design Factors of Industrial Infrastructures

Seismic Behavior The seismic behavior of a large industrial building with highly irregular geometrical landscape, mass, and stiffness distribution is investigated to evaluate the effectiveness of current procedures for seismic design of such structures. These procedures were developed substantially for conventional commercial or residential buildings with natural and well-defined seismic force-resisting systems, and their use…
