Prediction of Global and Localized Damage and Future Reliability for RC Structures subject to Earthquakes

Abstract

The paper deals with the prediction of global and localized damage and the future reliability estimation of partly damaged reinforced concrete (RC) structures under seismic excitation. Initially, a global maximum softening damage indicator is considered based on the variation of the eigenfrequency of the first mode due to the stiffness and strength deterioration of the structure. The hysteresis of the first mode is modelled by a Clough and Johnston hysteretic oscillator with a degrading elastic fraction of the restoring force. The linear parameters of the model are assumed to be known, measured before the arrival of the first earthquake from non-destructive vibration tests or via structural analysis. The previous excitation and displacement response time series is employed for the identification of the instantaneous softening using an ARMA model. The hysteresis parameters are updated after each earthquake. The proposed model is next generalized for the MDOF system. Using the adapted models for the structure and the global damage state, the global damage in a future earthquake can then be estimated when a suitable earthquake model is applied. The performance of the model is illustrated on RC frames which were tested by Sözen and his associates
