The Architecture and Engineering Behind Seismic Characteristics of Buildings

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Earthquakes are a category of natural phenomena, which occur in certain seismic areas with varying frequency and strength and depending on the force of action cause material and human’s damages. Damage reduction depends on the applicable parameters in relation to constructions / buildings:

  • Quality of constructions / buildings

In relation to this parameter, there are some geographical conditions / location and its position, geological / pedology and foundation, architectural / building model and flooring as well as design and engineering standards / building materials and technology.

The correlation of various factors with the stability of buildings under seismic action, is still a process that preoccupies not only experts in the field but also beyond, taking into account the fact that seismic effects are both in the natural environment and in the environment built inseparably.

Therefore, the topics of this paper are the analysis and findings in the relationship between the architectural and engineering parameters of the building related to the design phase:

  • Structural simplicity, uniformity and symmetry

  • Resistance and stiffness in two directions, in torsion and diaphragm

  • Location conditions and suitable foundations

  • As well as the parameters of the building related to the quality phase of works and maintenance:

  • Construction quality

  • Quality of materials

  • Quality of applied technology

In order to through the good correlation of these parameters within the whole building, to contribute in terms of sustainability of constructions / buildings and reducing the rate of damage and other associated costs.

Keywords:

seismic, buildings, architecture, engineering, resistance, damage, parameters, quality.

The Architecture and Engineering Behind Seismic Characteristics of Buildings

Earthquakes are a category of natural phenomena, which occur in certain seismic areas with varying frequency and strength and depending on the force of action cause material and human’s damages. Damage reduction depends on the applicable parameters in relation to constructions / buildings:
