Research Title: Fatigue Damage Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Reinforcing concrete (RC) structures in seismically-active regions are susceptible to undergo cyclic inelastic deformations in their critical regions that can lead to cover spalling, concrete crushing, bar buckling and bar fracture due to low-cycle fatigue damage. These failure modes can result in irreversible structural damage, causing the structure to lose its lateral load-carrying capacity. Junan’s research aims to develop a methodology to numerically assess the low-cycle fatigue damage and residual life of RC structures after being subjected to a sequence of seismic ground motions.
