Several seismic regions throughout the world demonstrate a high proportion of earthquake-vulnerable adobe (mud-brick) construction amongst poorer communities. Several adobe earthquake-retrofitting techniques have been developed, but dissemination of these techniques to the many communities at risk is a very significant challenge. This study looked at some of the echnical, financial and social aspects of development and implementation of retrofitting techniques in Peru.

Shear design of circular concrete sections using

The introduction of the Eurocodes for concrete design will alter the way that shear is approached for concrete structures. BS EN 1992-1-11 has adopted the variable angle truss model for shear, a more theoretically consistent approach than that used in BS 8110- 12. The model is confidently applied to rectangular sections, but its applicability to irregular sections is less clear. In particular, the behaviour of circular concrete sections is not well defined. This paper is intended to satisfy a requirement for design guidance on this topic that has been recognised by key BSI Committees. Using both experimental and theoretical data, the Eurocode variable angle truss model for shear design is assessed and extended to circular columns. J. J.
