Stresses in Open Section Fiber Reinforced Composite Beams Under Constant Shear Loading
A strength of materials approach from the ply level is used to derive expressions for stresses in statically determinate open section composite beams subjected to constant shear loading....

Measuring Vibration in an Advanced Composite Beam with Localized Internal Fiber-Optic Strain Sensors
Two optical fibers embedded with different configurations were used separately as strain sensors to measure the natural frequencies and modal amplitudes of a cantilevered graphite/bismaleimide...

A Primer for the Analysis of Composite Beams

Probabilistic Analysis of Post-Tensioned Steel Girder Bridges
External post-tensioning is used as a means of strengthening existing steel girder bridges. Since absolute safety of structures is impossible to attain due to uncertainty in load and resistance,...

Serviceability Analysis of Wood Beams with Creep
The effect of creep deformations on the serviceability reliability of single, dimension lumber wood beams is examined. A viscoelastic stress-strain relationship is used to model the time-dependent...

Reliability Consideration in Shakedown Analysis
Shakedown analysis for ductile rigid frames has shown that a structure can respond linearly at a higher elastic limit after it has experienced some plastic deformation. If the residual...

Floor Live Load Models and Pattern Load Effects
Probabilistic models of sustained live loads and equivalent uniformly distributed loads are discussed with regard to pattern load effects. A simple equivalent pattern load is identified...

Stress Wave Interaction in Finite Beam on Elastic Foundation
The short-time behavior of a finite Timeshenko beam on a Winkler foundation subjected to step and impulse loadings is presented. The transient behavior was analyzed by using the method...

Concrete Beam Testing with Optical Fiber Sensors
The use of an embedded multimode optical fiber to monitor curing and load-to-failure testing of a reinforced concrete beam has been investigated. The embedding process used to network...

Feasibility of FRP Molded Grating-Concrete Composites for One-Way Slab Systems
This paper describes the behavior of one-way concrete slabs reinforced with Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) molded grating. FRP molded grating is commercially available and is mainly...

Structural Performance of Hardwood-Metal Composite Beams
This research examines the deflection characteristics of layered timber/steel composite beams with hopes of applying such principles to large timber structures such as highway bridges....

Stochastic Finite Element Analysis of a Damped Beam on Random Foundation and Subjected to Fast Moving Loads
The dynamic effect of fast moving loads on a rail is analysed by the perturbation-based stochastic finite element method. The rail is modeled as an elastic beam resting on the Winkler...
