Study of Interaction Between Pneumatic Spherical and Cylindrical Form Shells Subjected to Wind Pressure
In the design of pneumatic membrane structures, analysis of stress and deformations of structures subjected to wind is among the most important requirements. For the purpose of studying...

Snap Buckling of a Delaminated Layer in a Composite Cylinder
We investigate snap buckling of a thin delaminated layer on the inner surface of a contracting thick cylinder. Finite-deflection solutions of the layer with or without considering the...

Late Stage Damage in G30-500/PMR-15 Laminates
Damage progression has been studied experimentally under tension using [02/906]s...

Convergence Rates of the Method of Successive Elastic Solutions in Thermoplastic Problems of a Layered Concentric Cylinder
This paper examines convergence rates of the method of successive elastic solutions, proposed by Mendelson, in determining the thermoplastic response of an arbitrarily layered concentric...

Implementation of a Viscoplastic, Kinematic Hardening Constitutive Model for Impact Prediction
This paper reports on a preliminary study to determine the significance of the Bauschinger effect on modeling impact and other large deformation events. Such events have significant implications...

Physical Model Tests of Dolos Impact Stresses
An on-going experimental study to determine impact stresses and static nesting stresses in instrumented large scale model dolosse is described in this paper. Seven dolosse were instrumented...

Load Rate Effects on Concrete Compressive Strength
Plain concrete cylindrical specimens from six different concrete mixes, 51 mm in length and diameter, were tested in compression quasi-statically at strain rates between 10-6/sec...

High-Strain Kinetic Testing of Deep Foundations
High-strain kinetic testing involves the upward decelerating or accelerating of a mass and using its inertial force to axial prolonged pulse at the head of a pile. Currently available...

Low Strain Dynamic Testing of Wood Piles Supporting an Existing Pier
This paper presents a case history where low strain dynamic testing was performed to test wood piles supporting an existing structure. Under consideration is a 183 m long wooden pier constructed...

Steady-State Analysis of Buckle Propagation
A novel finite element technique for the analysis of buckle propagation in pipelines is presented. The propagation pressure, propagation profile, the state of stress, and deformation during...
