Research on Resilient Reinforced Concrete Building Structural System
Two real scale five-storey reinforced concrete frame buildings were tested in BRI in order to evaluate damage of reinforced concrete structural members such as beams, columns, and walls for strength-based design buildings. A series of experimental works show that secondary RC walls could have improved seismic performance for damage reduction by changing configuration and rebar arrangement.
This study was carried out by a joint study of National Technology Development Project of MLIT “Development of function sustaining technologies for buildings used as Disaster Prevention Bases” (2013~2016) and Priority Research Program of BRI Development on Seismic Design Method for Building with Post Earthquake Functional Use” (2013~2015). The efforts in measuring concrete cracking by Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo University of Science and Tohoku University and seven participating companies are gratefully acknowledged. A part of this study was conducted as Scientific Research A (PI: Susumu Kono) of JSPS Grant-in-Aid program. Some financial support was also granted by the World Research Hub Initiative of the Institute of Innovative Research and the Collaborative Research Project of Materials and Structures Laboratory at Tokyo Institute of Technology.
