Seismic hazard and history of Iran
Iran stands as a common seismic country in the world. In 1976, an earthquake occurred in western Iran that claimed the lives of 15,000 people. Another incident claimed 1000 people in 1981 in Kerman while 40,000 faced the same in Gilan, a province in Northern Iran. …

Introduction

Another incident claimed 1000 people in 1981 in Kerman while 40,000 faced the same in Gilan, a province in Northern Iran. The Ritcher scale reading struck 7.2. An earthquake that occurred in Bam in December 2003 is numbered among the 130 major earthquakes in Iranian history with estimated casualty cases of 30-50 thousand (Iranian Studies Group, 2004, p.2). The foundation of assessment of seismic hazard in Iran is on the frequency of seismicity in relation to time and space. In the assessment of seismic hazards, seismotectonic sources are considered. The success of this study relies on regional and local knowledge on geology, seismicity and tectonics. The core sources of seismotectonic forces are;
• Fault sources and
• Area sources (Takavoli, B., and Ghafory, M., 1999, P.1013).
Research conducted by different firms like Wilson (1930), Niazi (1968) and many others reveal that seismicity in Iran is linked to local surface geology and tectonics (1014). Iranian plateau is characterized by active faults, active volcanoes with an Alpine earthquake belt that is elongated and of high surface. Active earthquake activities are found along Zagros fold thrust belt thus making most parts of Iran vulnerable to earthquakes (Takavoli, B., and Ghafory, M., 1999, P.1014). ...

Steel building design
At the same time, the design should also ensure and provide the necessary comfort, energy-efficiency and safety to the inhabitants. To attain the fundamental building requirements, it is then necessary to integrate adequate structural resistance to building designs. The primary purpose of this is to sustain the actions (i.e. loads, imposed displacements, thermal strains) and influences resistance…
Seismic Response of Reinforced Concrete Frame Buildings with Different Ductility Classes Using EC8 and EC2
The concept of reinforced concrete was first initiated in Japan during the 1950s. However in the initial times, the use of the RC buildings was not considered as significant, a situation that has modified in the present times (Aoyama, 2001, pp.1-2). Considering natural calamities like the earthquake, it is essential that the constructed buildings are based on such materials that are capable of…

Concrete Constituent and Mix Design
Natural heavyweight aggregates include materials such as goethite, limonite, barite, illmenite, magnetite, and hematite, with specific gravities (SGs) ranging from about 3.5 up to about 5.3, leading to concretes with unit weights up to about 4100 kg/m3 . For higher unit weight concretes, synthetic materials such as Ferro phosphorous (SG 5.8 to 6.8) or scrap iron and steel punching (SG 7.8) can be…
Seismic Analysis and Response of Bare and Masonry-Infilled Reinforced Concrete Frame Structures
Since the infill walls play some roles during earthquakes, their design need consideration to withhold lateral forces. From a research conducted out, most concrete structures succumb to seismic loads due to: Failures of beam-column joints as a result of poor reinforcement at the joints and/or poor workmanship in installation of reinforcement beams; Basic failure that results from flexural weakness…
design and construction of a prestressed concrete tank
The principle behind the prestressed concrete tank is that the compressive stresses induced by the high-strength steel tendons inside a concrete member prior to the loads being applied will balance tensile stresses inflicted in the member during the service. It`s recognized that prestressing eliminates several design limitations and conventional concrete places on load and span and allows the…
