Abstract

A twenty years old reinforced concrete building suffered from fracture of one of its ground floor corner columns. The extent of damage resulting from fracture of the column is examined. Plane frame structural analysis is used in the interpretation of the signs of damage of the building. Soil compressibility is incorporated in the analysis by assuming the footings to rest on Winkler type subgrade. The theoretical analysis is assessed by comparing the results with the actual behaviour of the structure.

A Soil-Structure Interaction Analysis of a Damaged Building

A twenty years old reinforced concrete building suffered from fracture of one of its ground floor corner columns. The extent of damage resulting from fracture of the column is examined. Plane frame structural analysis is used in the interpretation of the signs of damage of the building. Soil compressibility is incorporated in the analysis by assuming the footings to rest on Winkler type subgrade. The theoretical analysis is assessed by comparing the results with the actual behaviour of the structure.
