Is flow velocity a significant parameter in flood damage modelling?

Flow velocity is generally presumed to influence flood damage. However, this influence is hardly quantified and virtually no damage models take it into account. Therefore, the influences of flow velocity, water depth and combinations of these two impact parameters on various types of flood damage were...

REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURAL WALL DATABASE DEVELOPMENT FOR MODEL VALIDATION

Reinforced concrete walls are commonly selected as the lateral resisting systems in seismic design of buildings. The design procedure requires reliable/robust models to predict the wall response. Many researchers, thus, have focused on using the available experimental data to be able to comment on the...

MODEL QUALITY EVALUATION OF COUPLED RC FRAME-WALL SYSTEMS FOR GLOBAL DAMAGE...

Civil engineers take advantage of models to design reliable structures. In order to fulfill the design goal with a certain amount of confidence, the utilized models should be able to predict the probable structural behavior under the expected loading schemes. Therefore, a major challenge is to find models...

Probabilistische seismische Gefährdungsanalysen auf der Grundlage von Epizentrendichten...

Ziel der Arbeit ist es, eine neue Methode der seismischen Gefährdungsabschätzung vorzustellen. Es wird die Abschätzung der seismischen Gefährdung ohne die häufig angewandten Einteilungen in seismische Quellzonen beschrieben. Die vorgestellte Methode basiert auf Nachbarschaftsanalysen von Epizentren....
