COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF THE ROCKING BEHAVIOR OF SEISMIC ISOLATED BRIDGES
Tabiehzad, Pourya; Dicleli, Murat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2021-9-06)
In this thesis study a comprehensive roadmap is proposed for detailed modeling of rocking behavior of superstructure deck. Furthermore, a parametric study is conducted to determine effect of the superstructure rocking in enhancing the seismic performance of the box girder type bridge structures. For this purpose, various nonlinear models varying based on one chosen parameter are designed. Nonlinear boundary time history analysis (NTHA) of the models are then conducted being exposed to a set of ground motion...

Comparative assessment of the seismic performance of integral and conventional bridges with respect to the differences at the abutments
Erhan, Semih; Dicleli, Murat (2015-02-01)
In this study, the seismic performance of integral and conventional bridges is compared particularly considering the differences at their abutments. For this purpose, three existing integral bridges with one, two and three spans are selected and then designed as conventional jointed bridges. The structural models of the integral and conventional bridges are then built including nonlinear structural and dynamic soil-bridge interaction effects. Next, nonlinear time history analyses of the bridge models are co...
Comparative assessment of the efficiency of seismic isolation for seismic retrofitting of highway bridges in regions of low-to-moderate seismicity
Karalar, Memduh; Dicleli, Murat (null; 2019-07-06)
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 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 (MMRS) ana...
Comparative study of transient and quasi-steady aeroelastic analysis of composite wind turbine blade in steady wind conditions
Sargın, Hakan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
The objective of this study is to conduct a comparative study of the transient and quasi-steady aeroelastic analysis of a composite wind turbine blade in steady wind conditions. Transient analysis of the wind turbine blade is performed by the multi-body dynamic code Samcef Wind Turbine which uses blade element momentum theory for aerodynamic load calculation. For this purpose, a multi-body wind turbine model is generated with rigid components except for the turbine blades. For the purposes of the study, a r...
