Unformatted text preview: If your last name begins with: Then your earthquake is: A G impval1.acc H L impval2.acc M R kern1.acc S Z kern2.acc (i) Draw the time variation of the ground acceleration, velocity and displacement for the record. (Scale the peak acceleration to 1 g.) (ii) How well does the elastic design spectrum match the standard Newmark shape on p. 231 of Chopra (2000)? (iii) What will be the elastic top displacement of a 4 m square concrete (C25) bridge pier with a wall thickness of 0.5 m, height of 50 m, carrying a tributary mass of 1200 t at the top when subjected to your (original) record? What will be the base shear and bending moment? (iv) What will be the top displacement, base shear and moment if = 2 is available? 3. Convert Probs. 6.16 and 6.17 of Chopra (2000) to SI units, and then solve them....
