A harmonic balance solution of the coupled, nonlinear equations of motion of a flexible structure subject to vortex shedding
This investigation presents an approximate method of determining the response of a viscously damped single-degree-of-freedom system exhibiting both in-line (drag) and transverse (lift) flow-induced oscillations. A modified ...
Studies of dynamic response of a model of a compliant offshore platform
Using simple structural and hydrodynamic models, a parametric study is made of the effect of the various parameters that influence the dynamic response of a compliant offshore structure in 2,000 ft of water. The parameters ...
Seismic resistance of fiber-reinforced slab-column connections
Three interior and three exterior fiber reinforced slab-column connections were subjected to gravity loads and then tested under lateral load simulating earthquake forces. Test results were compared to previous tests on ...
A Lanczos component mode synthesis algorithm for locally nonlinear systems with applications to seismic structural pounding
A Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) algorithm employing load dependent Lanczos vectors is presented. The proposed algorithm yields a sparse set of reduced system equations and is an efficient method for computing the forced ...
Effect of slab in inelastic analysis of R/C buildings under earthquake type of loading
Tests on beam-to-column connections have shown that the presence of a slab significantly increased the flexural resistance of the beams under bending which caused tension in the slab. The presence of a slab in reinforced ...
Seismic response of slab-column connections with shear capitals
The punching shear strength of the slab usually governs the design of slab-column connections in regions of high seismicity. One method of increasing the shear capacity of the connection region is to increase the thickness ...
