**Performance Evaluation**

Damage Indices: Park & Ang: Bar Fatigue Damage Index: where 2Nf is the number of half cycles to failure at a plastic strain In order to evaluate the performance of each column, several damage indices and performance measures were used. Section Fatigue, spalling, bar buckling, residual displacement, etc. 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

**Damage Idecies at First Bar Fracture**

2002 PEER Annual Meeting

26
**Parametric Study Design multiple columns with varying: Diameter (Dcol)**

Axial Load (Pr) Hence, we design a number of columns having varying: Diameter, ….. Axial load, ….. and aspect ratio. This allows us to construct spectra-like plots showing for example the effects of Axial Load and Aspect Ratio on ductility demand for a given column diameter as one would use constant strength spectra. The difference is that these plots would correspond to actual columns designed according to code requirements, instead of just having random strength and periods. H Aspect Ratio (ar) 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

27
**Design Procedure Used Given Dcol, ar, Pr Determine rsp from BDS**

Solve iteratively for rl that would result in the required strength: For each rl value: Perform M-f analysis, determine My, EIeff, Mu and fu (failure reached when ec>ecu or es>esu) 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

28
**Column Design according to ARS**

This is an example of how each column was designed. The plot shows the 70%g ARS spectra for type B soil. Each of the other lines represents the process of designed a specific columns using different amounts of longitudinal reinforcement ranging from 1 to 8%. Since changing the amount of reinforcement changes both the strength and stiffness of the column, the lines have those strange shapes. For each column, a longitudinal reinforcement ratio was chosen so that the period and strength of column fall as close to the ARS curve as possible, as represented by the red circles. 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

31
**Ground Motions Used 20 LMSR motions and 50 LMLR motions LMSR motions**

In this example, a bin consisting of 20 ground motions was used for the analysis. The motions have a relatively large magnitude of around 7, and are recorded at km. The ground motions were similarly scaled so that their mean matches the ARS spectrum. 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

32
**Mean Results 2002 PEER Annual Meeting**

The peak spectral values for each of the earthquake are determined for each of the columns, and statistical information is computed. The mean values are shown here for the ductility, spectral displacement, Bar fatigue index, and Park&Ang damage index. Some useful results can be concluded. For example, the ductility demand is higher for columns with lower aspect ratio, and is only about 2 for columns with an aspect ratio of 10, which have the highest displacement demands. Bar fatigue index shows the highest values for shorter columns with low axial load. On the other hand, Most columns seem to have high values of the Park&Ang index, except for columns with high aspect ratio and low axial load. 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

33
**Mean+1 SD Results 2002 PEER Annual Meeting**

Looking at results corresponding to the mean + standard deviation, values are significantly higher by up to times in some cases. The bar fatigue index exhibits especially high variability. Talking about means and standard deviations leads into the probability of exceedance of performance limit state under a specific hazard, which is best described using fragility curves. 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

34
**Fragility Curves Compute Fragility curves for:**

Park & Ang Index (Minor and Significant damage) Fatigue Index Spalling (|ecu| > 0.009) Fragility curves are computed for a single column by running a suite of ground motions…. … Assumes analysis model and preformance criteria are correct 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

35
**Fragility Curves for Events with Large Magnitude at Small Distance**

Minor Damage (Park&Ang) Spalling Significant Damage (Park&Ang) This plot shows fragility curves computed for a column with a 5’ diameter, aspect ratio of 6, and axial load ratio of 0.2. The X-axis represents ground motion intensity which is taken as the ratio of the scaled motions’ spectral acceleration to that obtained from the ARS spectrum at the column’s period. The Y-axis represents the probability of exceeding a certain limit state (such as spalling) for a given intensity. For example, considering the curve corresponding to significant damage (according to the Park&Ang index), the probability of exceeding that damage level given that the ground motion’s spectral acceleration matches the design spectral accelearation is about 0.3. Then opposite can be done, ie, having a target probability, one can figure out the corresponding intensity. Fatigue Failure 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

36
**Fragility Curves for Events with Large Magnitude at Large Distance**

Minor Damage (Park&Ang) Spalling Significant Damage (Park&Ang) The same can be done for a different bin of ground motions, in this case for ground motions recorded at larger distances. The resulting probabilities are slightly less for the same intensity levels. For example, it’s 0.2 vs. 03. in the previous slide. Fatigue Failure 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

37
Summary New design and detailing criteria for circular columns generally result in performance consistent on average with performance objectives Ground motion characteristics effect: Maximum response Bi-directional response characteristics Residual displacements 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

38
Summary Analytical models involve significant levels of judgement to get adequate prediction of performance Nearly all models with reasonable stiffness estimates can predict max. displacements Small diameter, low aspect ratio (low periods), high loads, P-D effects and gravity load eccentricities potential problems Fiber models provide best fidelity, but need further assessment and refinement Residual displacements and local deformations (spalling, bar buckling, steel fracture, etc.) sensitive to modeling 2002 PEER Annual Meeting

39
Summary Parametric and fragility analyses provide useful basis for understanding behavior, but integration into overall PEER assessment methodology essential Additional shaking table tests will be carried out along with analytical studies to: get data on more complex bridge systems requiring significant redistribution of load once yielding occurs Identify damping and strain rate effects 2002 PEER Annual Meeting
