Abstract

A description is given of the structural scheme of an 11-story RC building with a flat-slab and a braced frame system. The building underwent resonance vibration and impulse tests to the point of cracking and other damage in the load-bearing elements and their joints. The fact that the building is designed for seismic regions gave rise to the problem of interpretation of the results (mainly, the dynamic parameters and the nature of the damage) from the seismic-resistance viewpoint. As is known, the special pattern of the earthquake substantially affects the dynamic behavior of a building. Accordingly, a theoretical analysis was carried out for different patterns
