Energy Dissipating Brace-Shear-Link System for Seismic Retrofitting of Reinforced Concrete Buildings



Energy-based hysteresis and damage models for deteriorating systems
Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (Wiley, 2004-01-01)
The low-cycle fatigue model presented in the companion paper is employed for developing hysteresis and damage models for deteriorating systems. The hysteresis model performs strength reduction at a current displacement cycle by evaluating the loss in the energy dissipation capacity along the completed displacement path. Hence it is completely memory dependent. Pinching is accounted for implicitly by a reduced energy dissipation capacity in a displacement cycle. The model predicts the experimental results ob...
Energy Dissipation Capacity of Reinforced Concrete Columns under Cyclic Displacements
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2012-07-01)
The energy dissipation capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) columns is investigated under inelastic cyclic displacements. Experimental data are obtained from 20 column specimens tested under constant-amplitude displacement cycles and from three column specimens tested under variable-amplitude displacement cycles. The effect of failure mode, displacement ductility, material properties, and detailing on the energy dissipation capacity of columns is investigated first under constant-amplitude loading. A simple...

Energy Scavenging Methods for WBAN Applications: A Review
Demir, Suleyman Mahircan; Al-Turjman, Fadi; Muhtaroglu, Ali (2018-08-15)
Recently, energy scavenging studies have become an important research area not only for the utilization of ambient energy sources but also for their high potential to replace the batteries especially for wireless body area networks (WBANs). Conventionally, batteries are used to provide energy to the WBANs. Amount of energy provided by batteries limits on-board features and communication range of the WBANs. Also, battery recharging or replacement is significantly impractical. Therefore, different energy scav...
Energy based seismic performance assessment of reinforced concrete columns
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Severe seismic events in urban regions during the last two decades revealed that the structures constructed before the development of modern seismic codes are the most vulnerable to earthquakes. Sub-standard reinforced concrete buildings constitute an important part of this highly vulnerable urban building stock. There is urgent need for the development and improvement of methods for seismic performance assessment of existing reinforced concrete structures. As an alternative to current conventional force-ba...
