Average antiplane motion in an elastic solid containing a layer of randomly distributed cracks
The propagation of antiplane waves in an elastic solid containing a random distribution of cracks that are parallel to each other, and oriented at an arbitrary angle relative to the direction of the incident wave, is ...
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 ...
