Response of simple slip-type systems to transient excitations
The response of single-degree-of-freedom elastoplastic systems of the "slip type" is investigated for various ground motions, and the results compared with those obtained for linear systems and for conventional elastoplastic ...
Torsional behavior of spandrel beams
This investigation concerns the problem of load transfer from the slab through the spandrel beams (edge beams) to the exterior columns in flat plate construction. The load is transferred from the slab to the spandrel beam ...
Deformations and moments in circular plates of linearly variable thickness under self-weight
This thesis reports an analytical solution for circular plates of linearly variable thickness, with a central circular hole, under self-weight. The plate is oriented in a horizontal position. The thickness decreases linearly ...
The effect of cyclic loads on bond
The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of load history on the behavior of axially reinforced concrete prisms. The six test specimens were divided into three pairs in which one specimen was tested under ...
Cyclic loading of simple braced frames
The purpose of this study is to obtain experimental information about the load-deflection behavior under monotonic and reversed lateral loading of simple one-bay, one-story steel frames with corner-to-corner bracing. Model ...
