Crack propagation in bone on the scale of mineralized collagen fibrils: role of polymers with sacrificial bonds and hidden length (2014-09-16)Sacrificial bonds and hidden length (SBHL) in structural molecules provide a mechanism for energy dissipation at the nanoscale. It is hypothesized that their presence leads to greater fracture toughness than what is observed ...
(2015-01-21)The velocity structure in the lithosphere is generally heterogeneous. Wave reflection, transmission, and diffraction from the boundaries of the different layers and inclusions are expected to affect rupture propagation on ...
(2017-04-18)Site amplification functions are used to modify ground motions from a reference bedrock condition to a surface condition based on the geologic features of the site of interest. Site amplification has been extensively studied ...
Reliability−based topology optimization frameworks for the design of structures subjected to random excitations (2016-07-15)Structural optimization aims to provide structural designs that allow for the best performance while satisfying given design constraints. Among various applications of structural optimization, topology optimization based ...
(2016-11-22)Seismic isolation is one of the most popular strategies to protect civil engineering structures against earthquake hazards. For highway bridges, isolation physically decouples a bridge superstructure from its substructures ...
