Beam-column connection flexural behavior and seismic collapse performance of concentrically braced frames (2012-05-22)This dissertation investigates the flexural behavior of beam-column connections with gusset plates and their ability to improve the seismic collapse performance of concentrically braced frames. Previous experimental and ...
Characterization of behavior of steel-concrete composite members and frames with applications for design (2013-02-03)Steel-concrete composite frames are seeing increased use in practice. Their excellent structural characteristics, including high strength, stiffness, and ductility, make them an appealing option for many building configurations. ...
Large-Scale Cyclic and Hybrid Simulation Testing and Development of a Controlled-Rocking Steel Building System with Replaceable Fuses (2010-08-20)Current U.S. building codes and earthquake engineering practice utilize inelasticity in the seismic force resisting system to dissipate seismic energy and protect against collapse. Inelasticity in conventional structures ...
Sacrificial bearing components for quasi-isolated response of bridges subject to high-magnitude, low-probability seismic hazard (2013-08-22)Bridges in low- to moderate-seismic zones, such as Mid-America, commonly employ elastomeric expansion bearings to accommodate service-level thermal deformations in the superstructure. Any potentially beneficial effect of ...
(2011-01-14)Structural optimization methods have been developed and applied to a variety of engineering practices. This study aims to overcome technical challenges in applying design and topology optimization techniques to large-scale ...
