Abstract

Smoke barriers control the movement of fire effluent within a construction works in the event of a fire and become a critical element when used within a Smoke and Heat Control System (SHCS). According to the post-earthquake investigations in Taiwan and Japan, the glass-type static smoke barriers can be damaged severely, and in the fires following an earthquake the performance of the SHCS may be reduced and make the smoke spread quickly. In this study, there are 5 specimens subjected to out-of-plane shaking table test. According to the result of shaking table test, a SAP2000 analytical model is established, and the out-of-plane dynamic characteristics of the glass-type static smoke barriers are obtained. The preliminary conclusion of this study could provide a guideline to assess the seismic performance and conduct the seismic design of glass-type static smoke barriers.
