QUALITY CONTROL OF RC ELEMENT FOR EARTHQUAKE DESIGN
Supervisor: Goto TETSURO, Taiki SAITO
Country: Dominican Republic
Recently the RC structure has been increasing adopted in Dominican Republic; however, quality of the buildings in the rural area is poor. For this reasons my study is focused on the quality control of the structural elements to secure a better performance when an earthquake happen. By visiting several constructions site in Japan, the construction method, technology and the quality controls of their concrete work. By means of Comparing them with the methods used in the Dominican Republic and a proposal is prepared to improve the construction process and the quality of the structural elements in my country. Also studied how the honeycombs affect the concrete strength in the structural elements and a seismic capacity of high quality RC member. Based on the study result, methodology for better RC elements is proposed in this paper.
