Time of Concentration in Small Rural Watersheds
A comparison was performed between the exponents of the independent variables L, S and i of the four-parameter time of concentration equation and eleven frequently encountered equations....

Seismic Response of Simple Structures with Coulomb Damping
A single story structure incorporating a floor-sliding mechanism for dissipation of vibration energy through Coulomb friction damping is examined. The response of this structure is evaluated...

Response Charts for Designing Against Nuclear Overpressures
The single-degree-of-freedom equation of motion for an elastic-plastic system with a nuclear airblast overpressure forcing function is nondimensionalized and solved. Solutions are presented...

Limiting Performance and Design by Reanalysis of Structures for Blast Resistance
Limiting performance is the absolute optimal response of a structure under a specified transient load. Reanalysis methods are computational techniques for analyzing locally modified large-scale...

Time Domain Structural Parameters Identification
Identification techniques for linear lumped-parameters models of vibrating structures are critically assessed using data produced by numerical simulations. The structural model is excited...

Relicensing/Renewal and Coordinated Consultation
A project which has been constructed and operating for a number of years offers a substantial set of empirical data for assessing how - and by whom - the project should be continued in...

Analysis of Slow Speed vs. High Speed Generation
This paper presents a discussion of the relative merits of each alternative, with emphasis placed on experience gained from projects recently completed. The discussion considers such factors...

The Lanczos Method in Structural Dynamics
The solution of the equations of motion often results in the solution of an eigenvalue problem in which the system matrices are large. Traditionally, the solution of this problem has employed...

Improved Method for the Dynamic Response of Bilinear Systems
A procedure is presented to eliminate the error introduced in the step-by-step numerical integration of the equations of motion of hysteretic bilinear systems subjected to earthquake excitations...

Application of expert systems in the area of construction management decision-making and risk analysis are explored. Decision-making under uncertainty is one of the attributes of human...

Frequency Domain Analysis of a Tank-Soil System
The dynamic response of an elastic cylindrical tank supported on a rigid base under a harmonic vertical excitation is analyzed taking into consideration its interaction with the foundation...

Dynamics of Fender and Rack Systems for Docking Ferries
A dynamic analysis of a ferry fender and rack system is developed based on the conservation of energy principle and Newton's laws of motion. The dynamics of the interaction...

Vibrations of Submerged Solids in a Vibrating Container
Dynamic forces on a vibrating submerged solid cylinder in both closed and open-top rectangular containers are evaluated. The submerged cylinder is attached to the base of a dynamically-excited...

Diffraction Forces on Axisymmetric Bodies
Use of a Green function satisfying the governing differential equation and all boundary conditions except those on the boundary of the structure yields an integral equation, when these...
