  4. Motivation for NEES-Soft Community Action Plan for Seismic Safety (CAPSS) 43 to 80 percent of the multi-story wood-frame buildings will be deemed unsafe after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake 25% of these buildings would be expected to collapse Thousands of these buildings exist, many of them multi-family rentals ATC 71.1 Project Develop seismic retrofit requirements for soft-story wood-frame buildings in seismically active regions of the United States Focusing primarily on Northern and Southern California and the Pacific Northwest

  5. NEES-Soft Project Summary NEES-Soft: Seismic Risk Reduction for Soft-Story Woodframe Buildings Five-university-industry National Science Foundation-funded collaboration Develop a better understanding the behavior of soft-story woodframe buildings under seismic loads through numerical analyses and experimental testing Provide experimental validation of ATC 71.1 concepts and PBSR approaches Characterize the improvement in seismic performance for an array of force-based and performance-based retrofit techniques Develop improved models of woodframe collapse mechanisms to better estimate the margin against collapse.

  9. Seismic Retrofits for the NEES-Soft Building Phase 1– steel base frame Phase 2 – first story constructed

  10. NEES-Soft PSD and Real-time tests @UA Test Objectives: • to verify the developed psudodynamic (PSD) testing and hybrid testing methods and their application to wood frame structures for eventual expansion to full buildings at NEES@UB (completed) The first time hybrid testing of a wood frame structure. • to characterize the highly nonlinear seismic behavior of woodframe construction (underway) • to evaluate in real earthquake rate the enhanced seismic behavior of woodframe installed with viscous dampers (underway)

  11. NEES-Soft PSD hybrid and Real-time tests @UA • Cyclic Tests: full CUREE protocol • Open Loop Hybrid Tests • to determine slow testing rate: 20 times slower was selected • to verify the developed continuous loading method • Closed Loop Hybrid Tests • Specimen 1: Loma Prieta Capitola (Completed) • Test 1: 72 year • Test 2: 2500 year • Test 3: mass x 3 and 2500 year • Specimen 2: Northridge-Beverly Hills(to be complete by Shao @ WMU remote control UA hybrid testing controller)

  16. Slow PSD hybrid test @UB NEES Objective : to develop an increased understanding of the effects of first floor (soft-story) retrofits on the upper stories • Specimen: 3-dimensional (near) full scale model with and without retrofit • Numerical substructure: existing first story with various retrofits • Physical substructure: upper stories, full representation with construction details • Use six actuators to consider rotation

  17. Conceptual plot of PSD hybrid test @ UB

  18. Performance-Based Retrofit using Energy Dissipation System • Performance-Based Retrofit • Increase damping in first story (and possibly stiffness) • May increase force transmitted to upper stories (imposes • limit on magnitude of damping in first story) • Expected performance level for design earthquake: • Fully Operational (FO) to Immediate Occupancy (IO) • Energy Dissipation System • Linear fluid viscous dampers • Peak force out-of-phase with peak displacement • Previously tested in wood structures • Location of Dampers • First story only • Along perimeter walls to provide contribution to torsionalresistance • Along both stiff and flexible wall lines • Displacement amplification system employed (scissor-jack)

  19. Parametric Study of One-Story Inelastic • Structure with Energy Dissipation System • Two-way asymmetric w/rigid diaphragm • Biaxial ground motion • CR and CM are fixed • CSD varied EQ Motions - Canoga Park Station (moderate far-field) - Far-field EQ records from ATC-63 - Stronger component applied in X-direction - 4 walls (one on each side) - Wall materials: Exterior: Horiz. wood sheathing Interior: Gypsum wall board - 2 dampers along X- direction, (one each on north and south sides) - 2 dampers along Y- direction, (one each on west and east sides) EQ-X SAWS Shear Wall Model: Hysteretic response of conventional structure (no dampers) subjected to bi-axial Canoga Park motion. EQ-Y CM = Center of Mass CR = Center of Rigidity (located at ; similar to location for NEES-Soft test specimen) CSD = Center of Supplemental Damping (location varies in X- and Y-direction).

  20. One-story inelastic structure (Tnx = Tny = 0.5 sec) • Biaxial ground motion (CP106+CP196) • Fixed total damping magnitude: Damping • coefficient along each direction is 5 kips-sec/in • Effect of Damper Location (CSD) • on Max. Inter-Story Drift Conventional CM 0.77 (0.2,-0.2) CR CSD @ Stiff Edge CSD @ Flexible Edge CSD @ Flexible Edge CSD @ Stiff Edge • Moving CSD from CR towards, and beyond, CM: • The maximum structural responses generally decreases (reducing translation AND torsion). • Damper location (plan-wise distribution) has strong influenceon structure response. • For a range of ground motions, the optimized CSD location is approximately at the • coordinate(0.2, -0.2), which is symmetric with CR about CM.

  22. DDD with Torsion Procedure: Linear system (i.e. stiffness of lateral load resisting system element does not change during the analysis) Decoupling torsional modes from translational modes Modal analysis for decoupled modes Combining modes to obtain the total displacement Using spectral displacement to find the design stiffness of each lateral load resisting element Nonlinear system Using equivalent secant stiffness and damping ratio using method proposed by Filiatrault and Folz
