IMPROVING STEEL PLATE SHEAR WALL CODE DESIGN METHODOLOGY
0.0 out of 5 stars
11 Apr 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): James T Enright
Current code based design of steel plate shear wall (SPSW) systems does not take into account the lateral force resistance provided by the moment resisting frame which bounds the web-plate. The...
Experimental Shake Table Testing of an Adaptive Passive Negative Stiffness Device within a Highway Bridge Model
29 Jul 2013 | Publications | Contributor(s): Navid Attary, Michael Symans, Satish Nagarajaiah, Andrei M Reinhorn, Michael Constantinou, Apostolos Aristotelis Sarlis, Dharma Theja Reddy Pasala, Douglas Taylor
Implementation of a mechanical Negative Stiffness Device (NSD) within a reduced-scale highway bridge model and its performance under seismic loading conditions is evaluated via shaking table...
Development and validation of a real-time computational framework for hybrid simulation of dynamically-excited steel frame structures
16 Oct 2012 | Publications | Contributor(s): Nestor Eduardo Castaneda-Aguilar
The use of traditional techniques such as the shake table or the pseudo-dynamic (PSD) test are often used to validate and disseminate new technologies associated with structural response...
An Internet-based Educational Platform for Earthquake Engineering Laboratory Experiments
19 Sep 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke, Jian Ouyang, Chris Lawrence Beeler, Chencheng Wu, Le Yu
Shake table constitutes a versatile tool for educational purposes and small scale research projects in earthquake engineering and structural dynamics. Hands-on activities involving shake tables...
Report on the Cable-stayed Bridge Control Problem - Phase 2
23 Jan 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke
This report presents the extended problem definition for the second generation of benchmark structural control problems for cable-stayed bridges. The benchmark problem is based on the Bill Emerson...
Seismic Fragility Relationships for Civil Structures with Semi-Active Control Devices
05 Jan 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): Waleed Barnawi
Development of techniques for seismic mitigation has become increasingly important for communities throughout the world. Of the many available techniques, structural control has emerged as a...
Control Strategies for 3D Smart Base Isolation Sysytems Using Modal and Nodal Approaches
26 Dec 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Yumei Wang
Application of control technologies to structures is expected to be able to enhance a structure’s performance in response to natural hazards. Specifically, smart base isolation systems,...
Seismic Base Isolation by Means of Nonlinear Mode Localization
19 Dec 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Yumei Wang
This study assesses the performance of a nonlinear base isolation system composed of a nonlinear foundation tuned in 1:1 internal resonance to a flexible mode of the main structure that is to be...
Acceleration Feedback Strategies for Active and Semiactive Control Systems: Modeling, Algorithm Development, and Experimental Verification
16 Dec 2010 | Publications | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke
Most of the current research on active structural control for aseismic protection has been based on either full state feedback strategies or velocity feedback strategies. However, accurate...
