Dynamic response of hazardous liquid-waste storage tanks used in nuclear facilities
This dissertation presents a comprehensive study of the dynamic response of storage tanks containing high-level radioactive wastes in nuclear facilities. Of the many issues that are peculiar to these systems, four important ...
Nonstationary ground motion model and applications to analysis and design of earthquake-resistant structures
To account for the uncertainties that are inherent in the definition of earthquake ground motions, this investigation is carried out in a probabilistic framework. A new, versatile, stochastic earthquake ground motion model ...
Nonlinear seismic response of dams using a coupled boundary element - finite element formulation
A study of the effects of dam-foundation interaction on the response of earth, rockfill and concrete-faced rockfill dams to obliquely incident P, SV and Rayleigh waves is presented. Emphasis is placed on the effects of the ...
Probabilistic analysis of the stability of imperfection sensitive arch and shell structures
The stability of arch and shell structures with random imperfections subjected to random loading is investigated. Arches are analyzed under different types of transverse loads while axial and/or pressure loading are ...
