Behavior of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Three-Dimensional Subassemblages
Three-dimensional subassemblages consisting of a concrete-filled steel tubular column and four H-shaped beams were tested under a constant axial load on the column, constant beam loads...

Damage Assessment in Concrete Using Acoustic Emission
An acoustic emission (AE) is a localized rapid release of strain energy in a stressed material. This energy release causes stress waves to propagate through the specimen. These acoustic...

Nondestructive Crack Identification by Acoustic Emission Analysis and Ultrasonic Frequency Response
Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) by the acoustic emission (AE) analysis and the ultrasonic testing (UT) on the spectral (frequency) response is studied to identify crack geometry. AE waveform...

Shrinkage Measurements in Composite Beam Slabs
When the concrete slab on a composite beam shrinks, it is restrained by the steel beam to which it is connected. Tensile stresses, as a result, are developed in the restrained concrete...

Flexible Porous Breakwater
This is a theoretical study of the reflection and transmission of linear waves by a flexible, porous and thin beam-like breakwater held fixed in the sea bed. The breakwater is idealized...

Determination of In-Situ Stresses From Acoustic Emissions
Acoustic emissions (AE) are microseismic activities that are generated in concrete by cracking and damage. The rate of Acoustic Emissions, called the 'Event Rate', can provide indication...

Frequency Response of Disordered Periodic Structures
A computational procedure is given for calculating the frequency response of disordered periodic structures based on wave propagation theory. An ideal periodic structure is composed of...

Random Response of Multicrystalline Structures
An approach to the probabilistic modelling and analysis of multicrystalline microfabricated beams is presented with application to micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Random, textured...

Stochastic Mixed Finite Difference Method
Some aspects of numerical solutions of stochastic mechanics problems are considered. The Finite Difference method for discretization of stochastic continuous media problems is discussed....

Interaction Effects in the Hybrid Control of Euler-Bernoulli Beams
The effect of viscous and Voigt damping upon the open loop response of simple continua such as Euler-Bernoulli beams is well understood. However, when attempting to control a distributed...

Experimental Investigation of Bending and Twisting Coupling in Thin-Walled Composite Beams
The behavior of a thin-walled ppen section composite material beam depends on the anisotropic mechanical properties of the panels that form the beam. A beam theory has been proposed for...

Eigenproperties of a Twisted, Nonuniform Rotating Beam by the Finite Element Method
A initially twisted blade with nonuniform properties along the length, is rotating with constant angular velocity about an axis perpendicular to it's elastic axis. The blade is modeled...

Evaluating Damage Detection in Bridges
Several researchers have recently considered using vibration monitoring of highway bridges as a means for detecting structural deterioration. Results to date have demonstrated that the...

Flexural and Shear Studies of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Beams
