Emergence of advanced computers triggered dramatic development in earthquake design principles in the last decades. There has also been crucial advancements in construction technologies. Specifications regarding earthquake design have accordingly been updated.
Aforementioned advancements in earthquake engineering makes it important to assess earthquake performance of existing industrial buildings. Due to the specific aspects of precast and post-tensioned buildings, earthquake performance assessment of such buildings require expertise and experience.
If earthquake performance of existing buildings do not satisfy requirements, they should be strengthened. If not done correctly, strengthening methods can decrease earthquake performance even more.
With more than 10 years experience in special structures, we are ready to serve you in strengthening design.
At KULTECH, we are working on innovative energy dissipating products that can be used in industrial buildings. These products decrease earthquake demands that the structure will be subjected to and prevent damage in the members.
