KASINOS, S., 2015. Performance-based design of secondary substructures. IN: Proceedings of 2015 17th Institution of Structural Engineers Young Researchers' Conference, London, Great Britain, 14 April 2015, pp.58-59.
The dynamic analysis and performance of secondary
subsystems in buildings and industrial constructions is a
topic of broad engineering interest. Mechanical, electrical or
architectural components must survive strong earthquakes
to facilitate emergency and recovery services in the
aftermath, limiting human and economic losses; while no
damage should happen in case of less severe events. With
current design methods lacking the necessary rigour and
robustness, the project aims to develop new and more
efficient analysis procedures for secondary substructures
subjected to dynamic excitations.
