Inside the Earth Long time ago, a large collection of material masses coalesced to form the Earth

Long time ago, a large collection of material masses coalesced to form the Earth

Inside the Earth (Contd.) Large amount of heat was generated by this fusion, and slowly as the Earth cooled down, the heavier and denser materials sank to the center and the lighter ones rose to the top. The differentiated Earth consists of the Inner Core (radius ~1290 km ), the Outer Core (thickness ~2200 km ), the Mantle (thickness ~2900 km ) and the Crust (thickness ~5 to 40 km ).

Large amount of heat was generated by this fusion, and slowly as the Earth cooled down, the heavier and denser materials sank to the center and the lighter ones rose to the top.

The differentiated Earth consists of the Inner Core (radius ~1290 km ), the Outer Core (thickness ~2200 km ), the Mantle (thickness ~2900 km ) and the Crust (thickness ~5 to 40 km ).

Local Convective Currents in the Mantle The Circulations Convection currents develop in the viscous Mantle, because of prevailing high temperature and pressure gradients between the Crust and the Core, like the convective flow of water when heated in a beaker

The Earthquake Rocks are made of elastic material, and so elastic strain energy is stored in them during the deformations that occur due to the gigantic tectonic plate actions that occur in the Earth. The material contained in rocks is very brittle. Thus, when the rocks along a weak region in the Earth’s Crust reach their strength, a sudden movement takes place there;

The Earthquake

Rocks are made of elastic material, and so elastic strain energy is stored in them during the deformations that occur due to the gigantic tectonic plate actions that occur in the Earth.

The material contained in rocks is very brittle.

Thus, when the rocks along a weak region in the Earth’s Crust reach their strength, a sudden movement takes place there;

Types of Inter-Plate Boundaries Convergent Boundary Transform Boundary Divergent Boundary The convective flows of Mantle material cause the Crust and some portion of the Mantle, to slide on the hot molten outer core. This sliding of Earth’s mass takes place in pieces called Tectonic Plates .

Opposite sides of the fault (a crack in the rocks where movement has taken place) suddenly slip and release the large elastic strain energy stored in the interface rocks. For example, the energy released during the 2001 Bhuj (India) earthquake is about 400 times (or more) that released by the 1945 Atom Bomb dropped on Hiroshima!!

Opposite sides of the fault (a crack in the rocks where movement has taken place)

suddenly slip and release the large elastic strain energy stored in the interface rocks.

Elastic Rebound Theory Elastic Strain Build-Up and Brittle Rupture

The slip generated at the fault during earthquakes is along both vertical and horizontal directions (called Dip Slip ) and lateral directions (called Strike Slip ) with one of them dominating sometimes. Large strain energy released during an earthquake travels as seismic waves in all directions through the Earth’s layers, reflecting and refracting at each interface.

Arrival of Seismic Waves at a Site Type of Faults

These waves are of two types -- body waves and surface waves ; Body waves consist of Primary Waves (P-waves) Secondary Waves (Swaves) , Surface waves consist of Love waves Rayleigh waves . - these are restricted to near the Earth’s surface

Affect of Architectural Features on Bld on during EQ Importance of Architectural Features Behavior of Bld during EQ depends on overall shape, size and geometry Late Henry Degenkoly noted EQ Engineer of USA summarised the configuration of building “ If we have a poor configuration to start with, all the engineer can do is to provide a band aid improve a basically poor solutions as best as he can. Conversely, if we start off with a good configuration and reasonable framing system, even a poor engineer cannot harm its ultimate performance too much”

RCC Building Effect of Earth Quake on RC Building Structures of complex shapes are possible with RCC Typical RC building consist of horizontal members (Beam & Slab), Vertical members (column & Wall) and foundation resting on ground System comprising of RC Column & connecting beam is RC Frame In any multi-storyed bld, lower stories experience higher EQ induced forces, therefore has to be designed stronger than upper story

RCC Building

Structures of complex shapes are possible with RCC

Typical RC building consist of horizontal members (Beam & Slab), Vertical members (column & Wall) and foundation resting on ground

System comprising of RC Column & connecting beam is RC Frame

In any multi-storyed bld, lower stories experience higher EQ induced forces, therefore has to be designed stronger than upper story

Role of Floor Slabs & Masonary Walls Effect of Earth Quake on RC Building Floor Slabs are like horizontal plates facilitating functional use of building Beams & Slabs at one storey level are cast together When Beam bends in vertical direction, thin slab bends along with them When beams moves with column in horizontal direction, slab usually forces the beam to move together with it Geometric distortion of slab (though negligible) is known as Rigid Diaphragm Action, must be considered during design

Role of Floor Slabs & Masonary Walls

Floor Slabs are like horizontal plates facilitating functional use of building

Beams & Slabs at one storey level are cast together

When Beam bends in vertical direction, thin slab bends along with them

When beams moves with column in horizontal direction, slab usually forces the beam to move together with it

Geometric distortion of slab (though negligible) is known as Rigid Diaphragm Action, must be considered during design

Role of Floor Slabs & Masonary Walls Effect of Earth Quake on RC Building In fill walls- Vertical space bet n columns and floor filled with masonary walls and not connected surrounding RC Columns & Beams Columns receives horizontal forces at floor levels & try to move in horizontal direction Masonary walls tends to resist this horizontal movement Masonary is a brittle material, therefore develops crack once their ability to carry horizontal load is exceeded Placing in fills irregularly in the bld causes ill effects like short column effect

Role of Floor Slabs & Masonary Walls

In fill walls- Vertical space bet n columns and floor filled with masonary walls and not connected surrounding RC Columns & Beams

Columns receives horizontal forces at floor levels & try to move in horizontal direction

Masonary walls tends to resist this horizontal movement

Masonary is a brittle material, therefore develops crack once their ability to carry horizontal load is exceeded

Placing in fills irregularly in the bld causes ill effects like short column effect

Horizontal EQ Effects Effect of Earth Quake on RC Building EQ loading caused tension on beam and column faces at locations different from those gravity loading Steel bars are required on both faces of beam to resist reversal of bending moment Steel bars are required on all faces of column too

Horizontal EQ Effects

EQ loading caused tension on beam and column faces at locations different from those gravity loading

EQ behaviour of Joints How do Beam Column Joins in RC bld Resist EQ Column beam joint have limited force carrying capacity when forces larger than these are applied during EQ, joints are severely damaged Repairing damage joints is difficult, so damage must be avoided Under EQ shaking, the beam adjoining a joint are subjected to moments in the same direction

EQ behaviour of Joints

Column beam joint have limited force carrying capacity when forces larger than these are applied during EQ, joints are severely damaged

Repairing damage joints is difficult, so damage must be avoided

Under EQ shaking, the beam adjoining a joint are subjected to moments in the same direction

EQ behaviour of Joints How do Beam Column Joins in RC bld Resist EQ        Under these moments, the top bar in the beam-column joint are pulled in one direction & the bottom one in opposite direction.        The forces are balanced by bond stress developed between concrete and steel in the joint region        If there is insufficient grip of concrete on steel bars in such circumstances, the bar slip inside the joint region, the beam loose their capacity to carry load  

EQ behaviour of Joints

EQ behaviour of Joints How do Beam Column Joins in RC bld Resist EQ           Under this pull- push forces at top and bottom ends joint undergo geometric distortion            One diagonal length of the joint elongates and the other compresses. If the column cross- sectional size is insufficient, the concrete in the joint develops diagonal cracks

EQ behaviour of Joints

EQ behaviour of Joints How do Beam Column Joins in RC bld Resist EQ        Problem of diagonal cracking & crushing of concrete in the joint region can be controlled by a)      Providing large column size b)    Providing closely spaced closed loop steel ties around column bars in joint region       Ties hold together the concrete in the joint and also resist shear force.

Basic Feature Why are Soft storey building vulnerable in EQ      Relatively flexible in the ground storey, also called Soft storey.(Relative horizontal displacement is much larger as compared to the above storey)     Relatively weak storey in ground storey (Weak Storey)    Such buildings are extremely vulnerable under earthquake shaking

Basic Feature

EQ Behaviour Why are Soft storey building vulnerable in EQ    Presence of walls in upper storeys make them much stiffer than the open ground storey    Upper storeys move almost as a single block and most of the horizontal displacement occurs in the soft ground storey itself

EQ Behaviour

Basic Feature Why are Soft storey building vulnerable in EQ

Basic Feature

The Problem Why are Soft storey building vulnerable in EQ        In the current practice, stiff masonry walls are neglected and only bare frames are considered in design calculation             After 2001 Gujrat EQ , IS : 1893 (Part –1)- 2002 has given special design provisions related to soft storey buildings            Special higher design forces for the soft storey as compared to the rest of the structure           Beam and column in the open ground storey are required to be designed for 2.5 times the forces obtained from bare frame analysis  

The Problem

Short Column Behaviour Why are Short Columns more Damaged During EQ     Bld resting on sloped ground consisting of short & long column, when shakes, all column move horizontally by the same amount along with floor slab at a particular level     Short column effect also occurs in columns that support mezzanine floor or loft slabs that are added in between two regular floors.

Short Column Behaviour

Short Column Behaviour Why are Short Columns more Damaged During EQ      A tall column & a short column of same cross section move horizontally by same amount during EQ     Short column is stiffer than long column(Stiffness of column means resistance to the deformation)     Larger is the stiffness, larger is the force required to deform it

Short Column Behaviour

Short Column Behaviour Why are Short Columns more Damaged During EQ     If a short column is not adequately designed for such large force, it can suffer significant damage during EQ     Short column attracts several times larger force and suffer more damage as compare to taller ones.     This behaviour of short column is called short column effect and often the damage is in the form of X –shaped cracking (Shear Failure)

Short Column Behaviour

Short Column Behaviour Why are Short Columns more Damaged During EQ     Special Confining reinforcement is to be provided over the full height of column that are likely to sustain short column effect    Special confining reinforcement must extend beyond the short column into the column vertically above and below by certain distance

Short Column Behaviour

The Solution Why are Short Columns more Damaged During EQ     In new building, short column effect should be avoided to the extent possible during Architectural design itself For short columns in the existing building retrofit solutions can be employed to avoid damage in future Earth Quake The retrofit solution should be designed by a Qualified structural Engineer with requisite background

The Solution

What is a Shear Wall Building Why are Bld with Shear Walls preferred in Seismic Regions       Reinforce concrete (RC) Bld often have vertical plate like RC walls called Shear walls         Shear walls are generally start at foundation level and are continuous throughout the building height    Thickness range; 150 mm to 400 mm  Shear walls are usually provided along both length and width of Bld  Shear walls are like vertically originated wide beams that carry EQ load downwards to the foundation  Shear walls are efficient both in terms of const. Cost and effectiveness in minimizing EQ damage in Structural & Non-Structural Member

What is a Shear Wall Building

What is a Shear Wall Building Why are Bld with Shear Walls preferred in Seismic Regions       Shear walls in building must be symmetrically located in plan to reduce ill effects of twist in building      Shear walls are more effective when located along exterior perimeter of building

Different possible geometries of Shear Walls Why are Bld with Shear Walls preferred in Seismic Regions

Different possible geometries of Shear Walls

What is a Shear Wall Building Why are Bld with Shear Walls preferred in Seismic Regions     Steel reinforcing bars are to be provided in walls in regularly spaced vertical & horizontal grids    Vertical and horizontal reinforcements in the wall can be placed in one or two parallel layers called curtains    Horizontal reinforcements needs to be anchored at the ends of wall    Minimum area of reinforcing steel to be provided is 0.0025 time the cross sectional area (Along each of the horizontal & vertical directions)
