Vibration of Structure with Interior Hinges
The object of this note is to demonstrate the use of the internal displacement excitation concept in analysis of the free and forced vibration of a structure modified by the addition of...

Cone Penetration of Granular and Cohesive Soils
The mechanics of rigid cone penetration into granular and cohesive soils is developed in three-dimensional form along limit equilibrium principles with solution sought through the method...

Shear Stresses in Beams with Discontinuity in Depth
The shear stresses arising in the region around a change in depth of a beam are studied. The discontinuities considered include changes with and without fillets. It is well known that...

Pierced Shear Walls of Stepwise Variable Thickness
The continuous connection technique is now established as a quick and accurate method for the analysis of uniform pierced shear walls, which are commonly used as the primary structural...

Continuously Supported Cylindrical-Conical Tanks
The bending effects in the shell arise from two primary sources: (1) the radial forces applied through the ring stiffeners; and (2) the geometrical discontinuity at the cylindrical-conical...

Strongly Curved Finite Element for Shell Analysis
A new curved element has been introduced for the purpose of modeling the membrane and bending behavior of strongly curved shells with arbitrary contours. The particular method used herein...

Numerical Approximation for Reliability Analysis
A distribution function composed of a central Gaussian portion and an exponential tail with a single point of discontinuity is proposed as a convenient representation of statistical demand...

Water Wave Over a Rectangular Channel Through a Reef
A practical method for predicting characteristics of waves propagating over a submarine channel, of rectangular cross section, is presented. The method was based on experimental results...

Soil Mechanics and Theorems of Limit Analysis
An attempt is made to exhibit the plastic limit theorems in terms more familiar to the civil engineer. The interpretation of a continuous velocity region as the limiting case of infinitely...

Abnormality Detection on Simulated Arterial Systems
As the need exists for improvement of current techniques for detecting and evaluating disorders of the arterial system, a feasibility study was made to investigate the use of changes in...

Analysis of Resistance in Fluvial Channel
The variation of friction factor in fluvial channels in terms of the governing principles is examined and related to the bed forms. Laboratory measurements show that local surface drag...
