Lesson9 2nd Part

  1. 1. Seismic design and assessment of Seismic design and assessment of Masonry Structures Masonry Structures Lesson 9, continued October 2004 Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 1 Limitations of the storey mechanism approach To perform a separate analysis for each storey, it is necessary to make assumptions on the boundary conditions of the piers, i.e. on their rotational restraints: fixed-fixed, or fixed- free, or other. These assumptions are strongly affected by the strength and stiffness of the coupling horizontal structural elements: plain unreinforced masonry spandrel beams, or r.c. slabs, or r.c. ring beams, which may or may not crack or fail as horizontal loads increase. The state of stress of these elements cannot be determined accurately on the basis of a separate analysis for each storey, but only from a global analysis of the whole multi-storey structure. In principle, only by knowing how much the coupling element are stressed can the engineer judge if cracking or failure can be expected, and, as a consequence, what kind of boundary conditions can be assumed for the piers. A variation in the axial force of the piers may take place under the overturning effect of the horizontal loads, affecting the flexural and shear strength of the individual piers. This effect may not be of relevance in low-rise squat buildings, but it can be in a more general context. Again, an evaluation of this effect can be made only very approximately with a separate storey-by-storey analysis. Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 2
  2. 2. Limitations of the storey mechanism approach The storey-mechanism approach must therefore always be applied with a clear understanding of its meaning and limitations, otherwise it can lead, in some cases, to unrealistic and unconservative results. The engineer can improve to some extent the results with a proper choice of boundary conditions (end rotation) for the piers, but still some structural configurations of multi- storey walls or buildings cannot be analysed properly with such method. Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 3 URM MASONRY SPANDREL BEAMS UNDER at first cracking SEISMIC ACTION Crack patterns from an experimental cyclic test on a full- at ultimate scale masonry building prototype (University of Pavia, 1994) Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 4
  3. 3. Strength of urm spandrel beams Very little information is available on the behaviour of urm spandrel beams subjected to cyclic shear. A proposal for strength evaluation which could be suitable for applications is as follows. Unreinforced masonry spandrels can be considered as structurally effective only if they are regularly bonded to the adjoining walls and resting on a floor tie beam or on an effective lintel. The verification of unreinforced masonry coupling beams, in presence of a known axial horizontal force, is carried out in analogy of the vertical walls. If the axial load is not known from the model (for instance, when the analysis is carried out with the hypothesis of in-plane infinitely rigid floors), but horizontal elements with tensile strength (such as steel ties or r.c. ring beams) are present in proximity of the masonry beam, the resisting values may be assumed not greater than the following values associated to the shear and flexural failure mechanisms. Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 5 Strength of urm spandrel beams The shear strength Vt of an unreinforced masonry coupling beam, connected to a r.c. ring beam or a lintel and effectively bonded at the ends, may be computed in a simplified way as follows: Vt = h t fv0 where: h is the section height of the masonry beam; t is the width (thickness) of the beam fv0 = is the shear strength in absence of compression. Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 6
  4. 4. Strength of urm spandrel beams The maximum resisting moment, associated to the flexural mechanism, always in presence of horizontal elements resisting to tension actions in order to balance the horizontal compression in masonry beams, may be evaluated as follows: [ M u = H p h / 2 1 − H p /(0.85 f hu ht ) ] where: Hp is the minimum between the tension strength of the element in tension placed horizontally and the value 0.4fhuht fhu= is the compression strength of masonry in the horizontal direction (in the plane of the wall). The shear strength, associated to this mechanism, may be computed as: V p = 2M u / l where l is the clear span of the masonry beam. The value of shear strength for the unreinforced masonry beam element shall be assumed as the minimum between Vt and Vp.

  5. 5. Requirements for non linear models • Low or moderate computational burden to allow the modeling of whole buildings: • discretization of the structure with macro-elements: the elements have dimensions comparable to the inter-storey height or with the size of openings (doors, windows), to reduce the number of degrees of freedom of the model. • Reliability of results: • all the fundamental failure mechanisms should be accounted for with suitable failure criteria; • the model should give a good estimate of the overall deformational behaviour under horizontal loads.

  12. 12. Use of nonlinear static analysis in seismic design/assessment The non linear static analysis is based on the application of gravity loads and of a horizontal force system that, keeping constant the relative ratio between the acting horizontal forces, is scaled in order to monotonically increase the horizontal displacement of a control point on the structure (for example, the centre of the mass of the roof), up to the achievement of the ultimate conditions. A suitable distribution of lateral loads should be applied to the building. At least two different distributions must be applied: -a “modal” pattern, based on lateral forces that are proportional to mass multiplied by the displacement associated to the first mode shape - a “uniform” pattern, based on lateral forces that are proportional to mass regardless of elevation (uniform response acceleration). Lateral loads shall be applied at the location of the masses in the model, taking into account accidental eccentricity. Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 23 Use of nonlinear static analysis in seismic design/assessment The relation between base shear force and the control displacement (the “capacity curve”) should be determined by pushover analysis for values of the control displacement ranging between zero and a sufficiently large value, which must exceed by a suitable margin the displacement demand which will be estimated under the design earthquake (target displacement) . The target displacement is calculated as the seismic demand derived from the design response spectrum by converting the capacity curve into an idealized force-displacement curve of an equivalent single-degree-of-freedom system. For the evaluation of the displacement demand of the equivalent s.d.o.f. system, different procedures can be followed, depending on: • how the seismic input is represented (acceleration spectra, displacement spectra, composite A-D spectra); • how the inelastic and hysteretic behaviour of the structure is accounted for (equivalent viscous damping, ductility demand, energy dissipation demand).

  16. 16. When and how to use storey-mechanism method Eurocode 8: “For low-rise masonry buildings, in which structural wall behaviour is dominated by shear, each storey may be analyzed independently. Such requirements are deemed to be satisfied if the number of storey is 3 or less and if the average aspect ratio of structural walls is less than 1.0. …. New Italian seismic code: “For buildings with number of storeys greater than two, the structural model should take into account the effects due to the variation of the vertical forces due to the seismic action and should guarantee the local and global equilibrium. “ Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 31 Earlier use of storey-mechanism method (Tomaževič) du Φu µu = = Ultimate ductility de Φe q2 +1 q behaviour factor µu ≥ 2 (force reduction factor), specified by code (e.g. 1.5-2.0 for urm) Φ = d/h storey drift a S ⋅ β0 H du , j ≥ Vdesign , j = υ j ⋅ Wtot ⋅ S d (T ; q ) = k j ⋅ Wtot ⋅ g q Masonry Structures, lesson 9 part 2 slide 32
