Nonlinear seismic response evaluation of tunnel form building structures
Balkaya, C; Kalkan, E (Elsevier BV, 2003-02-01)
The occurrences of (M-w = 7.4) Kocaeli and (M-w = 7.1) Duzce earthquakes in Turkey in 1999 once again demonstrate the nondamaged and high performance conditions of RC shear wall dominant structures commonly built by using the tunnel form technique. This study presents their seismic performance evaluation based on the nonlinear pushover analyses of two case studies. The contribution of transverse walls and slab-wall interaction during the 3D action, the effects of 3D and 2D modeling on the capacity-demand re...
Nonlinear Behavior of Concrete Gravity Dams
Soysal, Berat Feyza; Arıcı, Yalın (null; 2014-10-25)
Kanoğlu, Utku (2004-06-12)
The initial value problem solution of the nonlinear shallow water–wave equations developed by Kânoğlu (2004) is applied to the benchmark problem — tsunami runup onto a plane beach — and results are compared. Comparisons with the benchmark solution produce identical results.
Nonlinear performance analysis of steel lattice energy distribution towers
Köşker, Yunus Anıl; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-2)
Steel lattice tower structures play a vital role in overhead energy transmission and distribution networks. The safety of the towers has a great significance in order to keep power systems functioning. Despite their crucial function, these structures are susceptible to damage and sometimes total collapse as a result of environmental overloading. The collapse of tower structures in varying magnitude has been reported due to changing global weather patterns in the past few years. On January 16th, 2019, strong...
Nonlinear vibration analysis of rotors supported by ball bearings
Bahan, Doğancan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Performance of ball bearing-rotor systems is highly dependent on and often limited by characteristics of ball bearings. Ball bearings are nonlinear by their nature and this nonlinearity must be investigated rigorously to correctly predict vibration response of the system. The steady-state periodic response of rotor systems with nonlinear ball bearings is investigated. The rotor is modeled with the Finite Element Method. Nonlinear model for the bearings considers finite number of balls, bearing clearance and...
