Isotropic-Kinematic Cyclic Hardening Characteristics of Plate Steels

Shakeri, Ashkan
Cyclic hardening of metals is considered as one of the most important features that affects extremely the hysteresis behavior of steel structures. One approach to study this characteristic is dividing it into two components, including isotropic hardening and kinematic hardening, and defining any of these components for any type of metals by calibrated data obtained from experiments. However, the lack of these calibrated data on metals, restricts this approach. Therefore, in this paper the isotropic and kinematic characteristics of five different steel grades from 100 to 485 MPa, under various strain ranges between 1 and +/- 7% were proposed. Afterwards, four of these five grades were validated in order to find the appropriate combination of data for any of them, and to compare the result of this approach with those obtained from a well-known hardening model, Ramberg Osgood. The results showed the high accuracy of the isotropic-kinematic hardening model in comparison to the Ramberg Osgood method.


Nonlinear Fiber Modeling of Steel-Concrete Partially Composite Beams with Channel Connectors
Ozturk, Alper; Baran, Eray; Tort, Cenk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-05-01)
A simplified nonlinear fiber-based finite element model of steel-concrete partially composite beams utilizing channel type mechanical shear connectors is developed in OpenSees framework. The interaction between steel beam and concrete slab is accounted for by introducing nonlinear zero length elements and rigid links. The channel shear connector response used in numerical models is based on the previously obtained experimental response from pushout tests. Accuracy of the numerical models in predicting the r...
Lateral buckling of overhanging crane trolley monorails
Ozdemir, Kerem Murat; Topkaya, Cem (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
Lateral torsional buckling should be taken into account during the design of overhanging steel beams. One special type of overhanging beam is the crane trolley monorail. Lateral buckling of overhanging monorails under idealized loading and boundary conditions has been studied in the past using classical mathematical procedures. This paper aims to present a detailed investigation of overhanging monorails using finite element analysis. Effects of different loading and boundary conditions were studied in detai...
Seismic retrofitting of highway bridges in Illinois using friction pendulum seismic isolation bearings and modeling procedures
Dicleli, Murat (Elsevier BV, 2003-07-01)
In this paper, the economical and structural efficiency of friction pendulum bearings (FPB) for retrofitting typical seismically vulnerable bridges in the State of Illinois is studied. For this purpose, a bridge was carefully selected by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to represent typical seismically vulnerable bridges commonly used in the State of Illinois. A comprehensive structural model of the bridge was first constructed for seismic analysis. An iterative multi-mode response spectrum ...
Design of fiber-reinforced composite pressure vessels under various loading conditions
Levend, P; Katirci, N (Elsevier BV, 2002-10-01)
An analytical procedure is developed to design and predict the behavior of fiber reinforced composite pressure vessels. The classical lamination theory and generalized plane strain model is used in the formulation of the elasticity problem. Internal pressure, axial force and body force due to rotation in addition to temperature and moisture variation throughout the body are considered. Some 3D failure theories are applied to obtain the optimum values for the winding angle, burst pressure, maximum axial forc...
A detailed analysis for evaluation of the degradation characteristics of simple structural systems
Kurtman, Burak; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Deterioration in the mechanical properties of concrete, masonry and steel structures are usually observed under repeated cyclic loading in the inelastic response range. Therefore such a behavior becomes critical when these types of structures are subjected to ground motions with specific characteristics. The objective of this study is to address the influence of degrading behavior on simple systems. The Structural Performance Database on the PEER web site, which contains the results of cyclic, lateral-load ...
