Experimental and analytical study of variable fluid damper and stiffness device
A prototype variable fluid damper and stiffness device is evaluated in this study. This damper is capable of providing continuous variation with different levels of system damping and stiffness. The damping and stiffness ...
Advanced floodplain mapping of a Rio Grande Valley resaca using LIDAR and a distributed hydrologic model
The availability of high-resolution LIDAR and GIS data combined with the onset of more powerful computers has made the use of distributed parameter hydrologic models more feasible. This study employs one such model, Vflo(TM), ...
Model development for a highly sloped, limestone watershed to be used in a radar-based flood alert system
Flood Warning Systems are not a new commodity to the hydrologic world, however, the advancements in GIS data, hydrologic modeling tools, NEXRAD, and internet capabilities have allowed for improvements in flood prediction. ...
A Monte Carlo study of vibration isolation systems using linear and nonlinear multiple tuned mass damper oscillators
The vibration isolation effect of linear and nonlinear single degree of freedom oscillators attached to a structure is studied. This system of oscillators, directly attached to the main structure, induces a decrease to the ...
