How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The paper studies the response of a 3-storey building subjected to reverse faulting. 1 g physical model tests are conducted using a 3 m long split-box, modelling the nonlinear response of structural members with artificial plastic hinges. The experimental results are used to validate the numerical modelling technique, which is subsequently employed...
The paper studies the interaction of buried pipelines with a reverse fault rupture, employing 3D finite element (FE) modelling. A thoroughly validated strain softening constitutive model is employed to conduct a parametric study, exploring the effect of sediment thickness, pipeline burial depth, and thickness. It is shown that the increase of sedim...
Buried pipelines have become essential parts of lifelines and usually pass from large geographical regions. Therefore, they could be subjected to different types of hazards caused by wave propagation and/or permanent ground deformation along their path. Recent earthquakes have shown wide ranges of damages applied to pipelines in case of reverse fau...
As pipelines pass from large geographical regions, their passage through areas with active faults in seismic regions might be inevitable. On the other hand, map of active faults is faced with many uncertainties and it is not possible to estimate the precise place of fault, angle of fault and the fault line. Thus, as lifelines, pipelines are vulnera...
