SEISMIC RESPONSE OF A 1:6 REINFORCED CONCRETE SCALE-MODEL STRUCTURE WITH FLEXIBLE FLOOR DIAPHRAGMS

A comprehensive investigation to study the effect of flexible floor diaphragms on the inelastic seismic response of reinforced concrete buildings is presented. The study used a combined experimental and analytical approach, the details of which are described. The paper presents extended descriptions and results of an experimental study of the shaking-table response of a scaled model structure, and its pertinent component tests. The correlation between the analytical predictions obtained using the developed model and the exoerimental responses is examined.
