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 ...
Modeling contaminant partitioning between residual oil and mobile water phases in porous media: A time variant source of contamination
Residual hydrocarbons residing above or within an aquifer can serve as a continuous time-variant source of contamination to the aquifer. The primary mechanism for contamination is the movement of water past the immobile ...
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 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 ...
Filtration of polydisperse suspensions
The effect of polydispersivity of the influent suspension on the ripening stage of a granular media filter has been studied experimentally. Suspensions of spherical latex particles of sizes 0.09$\mu$m, 0.944$\mu$m and ...
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 ...
