Fuzzy AHP Comprehensive Approach-Based Damage Evaluation of Reinforced Concrete Frame Structure


Article Preview

Fuzzy techniques and AHP approach have been widely used during the last decade. However, few papers have attempted to use the AHP approach that incorporates fuzzy techniques to evaluate the damage of framework. This paper, therefore, aims to set up a hierarchy structure of the damage and then develop a fuzzy analysis of framework for the damage evaluation of framework. In the process of damage evaluation, setting up the hierarchy structure, determining the weight vector by the AHP, setting up the fuzzy evaluation matrix and developing fuzzy AHP evaluation are detailed according to framework. Finally, 5-story framework is used to execute the proposed fuzzy AHP model. It is concluded that the results is effective and accurate.
