Seismic performance

The most sophisticated techniques, combined with the ultimate computational power, allow the simulation of the seismic response of complete structures with a high level of detail

In these simulations, it is possible to adequately consider:

  • Fragile response of concrete and masonry

  • Cyclic response of reinforcing steel, explicitly modeled in its actual position

  • Interfaces between different materials

  • Soil-structure interaction

It is also very useful to estimate the behavior of structural elements with an uncertain cyclic response due to complex geometries or materials, their damage state, or a retrofitting application.

The estimated response for complex elements can be later incorporated to other simplified models focused on evaluating the complete structure.

Iktes offers its knowledge in simulating and evaluating the nonlinear dynamic response of structures for:

  • Creation of detailed models for the simulation of complete structures, or local structural elements

  • Estimation of the structural response (strength, ductility & cyclic response)

  • Simulation of the dynamic response and evaluation of the seismic performance and resilience

  • Seismic design optimization
