Transcript

  • 1. SEISMIC RETROFITTING USING PRECAST ELEMENTS
  • 2. RETROFITTING • Modification of existing building • 3 methods • Increasing lateral load carrying capacity • Increasing ductility of beams and columns • Reducing seismic response 2
  • 3. Improvement of seismic performance Increase strength Installation of wall Installation of frame Installation of brace Increase ductility Confining columns or beams Reduce response Installation of dampers Installation of isolators 3
  • 4. 1.PRECAST CONCRETE FRAMES • External PCaPC frame • On existing or new foundation • 2 methods • PCaPC outer-frame method • PCaPC parallel unit-frame method 4
  • 5. 5
  • 6. CONSTRUCTION 1. Evaluation of seismic capacity 2. Selecting desired retrofit method 3. Excavation of the ground for extending or construction of foundation 4. Erection of PCaC columns 6
  • 7. 5. Setting of PCaC beams 6. Filling joints 7. Post-tensioning beam - column joints 8. Providing shear transfer 9. Integration of external frame with building 7
  • 8. Excavation of ground Assembling columns and beams 8
  • 9. Post-tensioning beam column joint Tensioning diagonal ties 9
  • 10. Shear transfer by pre- stressing bar View after retrofit 10
  • 11. CONNECTIONS • Column - foundation: splice sleeve connectors • Column - column: splice sleeve connectors • Column - beam: post-tensioning • Vertical joints: high strength non-shrink grout • Horizontal joints: non-shrink mortar 11
  • 12. JOINTS 12
  • 13. SHEAR TRANSFER By pre-stressing bar By floor slab 13
  • 14. OUTER-FRAME METHOD 14
  • 15. PARALLEL UNIT-FRAME METHOD 15
  • 16. ADVANTAGES • Faster construction • Less or no interior work • Ventilation and lighting unaffected • Room layout unchanged 16
  • 17. LIMITATIONS • Building concrete strength - 13.5MPa • Cost - $20,000 to $25,000 • Outer-frame method – 14 storeys • Parallel unit-frame method – 12 storeys 17
  • 18. NOTE • Outer-frame method: 1999 to 2012: 493 projects • Parallel unit-frame method: 2005 to 2012: 220 projects • Tohoku earthquake (March 2011) of intensity 9 on moment magnitude scale - 59 buildings survived 18
  • 19. 2.PRECAST CONCRETE BRACE • 5 unit assemblage • 4 legs and a central unit • Pre-stress through external cables • Brace fits the frame by itself • Frictional control joints 19
  • 20. BRACE 20
  • 21. FSSP DEVICE • When subjected to seismic load only one diagonal works effectively • Tension diagonal held in place by FSSP 21
  • 22. DESIGN ISSUES 22
  • 23. 23
  • 24. NOTE • Suggested by Susumu Kono & Fumio Watanabe • Lateral load carrying capacity increased by 3 times • Remedies to brittle failure: CFT & FRC 24
  • 25. 3.PRECAST ARMATURE CROSS WALL • Replacement of timber members • PCaP elements pinned at joints • Light grouting • Cotter pin • Truss arrangement: tensional strength • Pre-stress: bending strength 25
  • 26. Cross wall Joint 26
  • 27. NOTE • Proposed by Wani Ahmad & Javed Ahmad Bhat • 18kN: 36mm x 36mm: 8-5mmφ: 8.1kg • Revives traditional construction methodology • Standardization required 27
