Paper Title:
Application of Engineered Cementitious Composites for Earthquake Resistance and Disaster Mitigation of Structures
  Abstract

This paper begins by discussing the need for damage mitigation for building structures under performance-based design by Wenchuan earthquake. Based on this concept, the character of Engineered Cementitious Composites and the application of the on-site Engineered Cementitious Composites device is discussed. Moreover, a new precast Engineered Cementitious Composites device is suggested. Based on the practical projects, A 6-story frame structure with and without such Engineered Cementitious Composites devices was calculated in 8-degree earthquake zone. The results indicate that Engineered Cementitious Composites devices can reduce the drift angle of the base story from 0.145 to 0.1, reduce the displacement of the top story from 20.23mm to 13.37mm. Engineered Cementitious Composites devices are confirmed to have significant potential as a new structural technology for earthquake resistance and disaster mitigation.
