Effective stiffness and punching failure of flat-plate structures
The existing equivalent frame methods for lateral displacement analysis of flat-plate structures are one-value stiffness models which do not reflect the realistic response of structures. Based on the experimental data, the ...
Flexural creep in pure and filled acrylic resin systems
The creep behavior of poly (methyl methacrylate) and acrylic polymer concrete (PC) systems based on methyl methacrylate was studied in flexure. Creep in both pure and filled systems followed a power law time dependence. A ...
Dynamic response of simple pile-structure systems
This dissertation is composed of two parts. In the first part, a comprehensive study is made of the harmonic response of a rigid mass or a mass-sprint system supported on a pile driven in a homogeneous elastic medium. The ...
