Experimental/analytical approaches to modeling, calibrating and optimizing shaking table dynamics for structural dynamic applications
This thesis presents an Experimental/Analytical approach to modeling and calibrating shaking tables for structural dynamic applications. This approach was successfully applied to the shaking table recently built in the ...
Injectable, in situ polymerizable, biodegradable scaffolds based on poly(propylene fumarate) for guided bone regeneration
Poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) was developed as a scaffold to guide bone regeneration. Synthesis of this material via refined reaction pathways led to increased purity and higher molecular weights of this unsaturated, ...
Stability of elastic/plastic columns and circular rings with random geometric imperfections
The stability of elastic/plastic columns and circular rings with random geometric imperfections is investigated. Columns are analyzed for axial loading and rings for uniform external pressure. A procedure is developed to ...
Analysis of nonlinear structural systems accounting for both system parameter uncertainty and excitation stochasticity
Limiting ourselves to only loading and system parameter uncertainties, the dynamic loading to a structure can be modeled as a random function while the system or material parameters can be modeled as random fields. Through ...
