Nonductile Concrete Poster

Older nonductile concrete building

PEER is contributing to the solution through…

concrete columnResearch
Experimental and analytical studies produce data for development of models. See PEER Reports, Digests, and Online Databases.
Improved simulation capabilities help identify the truly vulnerable buildings from within the large building stock. See OpenSees
Column shearModels
Stiffness, strength, and deformation capacity models to collapse are available. See EERI/PEER seminar notes
Concrete coalitionAdvocacy
EERI, PEER, and others are collaborating on an initiative to promote risk reduction in older concrete buildings. See press release.
