Modelling of strengthened hollow brick infills
BARAN, MEHMET; Ozcelik, Ramazan; Sevil, Tugce; Canbay, Erdem (2013-02-01)
Strengthening the existing hollow brick infill walls by bonding high-strength precast concrete panels or applying steel fibre reinforced mortar was found to be an occupant-friendly seismic retrofitting technique for the buildings in use with deficient reinforced concrete structural systems. Both techniques convert the existing non-structural hollow brick infill walls into load-carrying structural members. To verify the effectiveness of the techniques, 20 reinforced concrete frames with hollow brick infill w...
Modeling of Multi Open Phase Fault Condition of Multi-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors
Fei, Marco; Zanasi, Roberto (2011-09-10)
This paper deals with the modeling of multi-phase permanent magnet synchronous motors under multi open phase fault condition. The presented model is suitable for generic number of phases, generic shape of the rotor flux and generic number of open circuit faults. The motor model in fault condition can be used for faults occurring on both adjacent and not adjacent phases. The model can be very useful both for simulation and implementation of fault-tolerant control strategies.
3-D soil structure interaction analyses of three identical buildings in Sakarya city after 17 August 1999 Kocaeli earthquake
Ünal, Orhan; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
The aim of this study is to analyze the soil structure interaction of three identical buildings on ®ahinler Street of Sakarya city which had no damage to heavy damage after the Kocaeli (1999) earthquake. For the purpose of 3-D dynamic nonlinear analysis of the soil site and the overlying structures, Flac3D software was chosen as the numerical modeling framework. Soil properties were determined by using the results of available site investigation studies. A three dimensional mesh was created to represent the...
Comparative study of commercial structural analysis programs in view of seismic assessment procedures in Turkish earthquake code 2007
Yıldırım, Suat; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
In Turkey, most of the existing buildings have been designed according to Turkish Earthquake codes of 1975 and 1997. It is a well known fact that, poor material quality, poor design, poor control on site and inadequate workmanship makes existing buildings vulnerable to earthquake. In addition, change in function of buildings becomes another problem. These problems increase the importance of assessment of existing buildings. For this purpose, a new chapter has been added to the new code and assessment method...
