Abstract:

This report contains the proceedings from a workshop "Seismic Rehabilitation of Lightly Reinforced Concrete (LRC) Frames" sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. Corps of Engineers, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory. The 1-1/2 day workshop was held on June 12-13, 1995 in Gaithersburg, Maryland. A total of 24 researchers, design engineers, and representatives from various federal agencies were invited to attend the workshop. The objectives of the workshop were to determine the state-of-the-art in the rehabilitation of LRC frames, to determine any gaps in the knowledge base that are preventing the development of guidelines or the widespread use of the rehabilitation methods, and the methods to fill these gaps. Six papers were presented at the workshop. The participants were divided into three working groups - concrete/masonry, steel, composites and damping systems. The participants discussed and recommended areas of needed research for rehabilitation methods in the three areas.
