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 ...
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 ...
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 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
