Comparison of blast analysis methods for modular steel structures
(Turkish Chamber of Civil Engineers, 2018-03)
Two blast analysis methods widely used are three-dimensional finite element (FE) and uncoupled equivalent single degree of freedom (ESDOF) methods. The uncoupled equivalent ESDOF method, which is the most common blast ...
Impact spectrum of flood hazard on seismic vulnerability of bridges
Multiple hazards (multihazard) conditions may cause significant risk to structures that are originally designed for individual hazard scenarios. Such a multihazard condition arises when an earthquake strikes to a bridge ...
Crack remediation in mortar via biomineralization: effects of chemical admixtures on biogenic calcium carbonate
Limited research on biomineralization in cement-based systems suggested that self-healing of surface cracks could be obtained by triggering biogenic calcium carbonate (CaCO3) precipitation within the cracks. While this is ...
Nonlinear dynamic behavior of the basins with 2D bedrock
Resonance due to impedance contrast, focusing due to subsurface topography, conversion of the body waves to surface waves and subsurface topography are among the factors influencing the amplification specification of the ...
Seismic design and performance of SPSWs with beam-connected web plates
Steel plate shear walls with beam-connected web plates (B-SPSWs) are an alternative steel plate shear wall (SPSW) configuration in which the web plate edges are detached from the columns to avoid high flexural demands in ...
Behavior of columns of steel plate shear walls with beam-connected web plates
Steel plate shear walls with beam-connected web plates (B-SPSWs) are an alternative configuration of steel plate shear walls (SPSWs) where web plates are connected to the beams only. Detaching web plates from columns and ...
Blind identification of site effects and bedrock motion from surface response signals
A method for blind identification of site effects from two nearby ground surface response signals is presented. The proposed approach makes use of ground surface accelerations from two nearby stations to back-calculate the ...
Use of corn-steep liquor as an alternative carbon source for biomineralization in cement-based materials and its impact on performance
Early age microcracks are generally the primary cause for a decrease in service life of cement-based structures. Recent studies suggested that it might be possible to develop a smart cement-based material that could self-heal ...
Explanation for papers missing from this special issue
(Springer Nature, 2018-06)
A simplified approach for site-specific design spectrum
The design acceleration spectrum requires site investigations and site-response analyses in accordance with the local seismic hazard. The variability in earthquake source and path effects may be considered using a large ...
