Failure analysis of shear critical RC structural members

This paper presents a beam finite element for the simulation of the monotonic and cyclic response of RC structural members under the interaction of flexure, axial force and shear. The proposed beam element follows the assumptions of the Timoshenko shear beam theory with a three-field Hu-Washizu variational formulation for the derivation of the element response. The nonlinear response of the element is obtained through section integration of nonlinear material response. A 3d plastic damage model for cyclic analysis of concrete is implemented with the general closest point projection algorithm. Concrete confinement effects are included by satisfaction of transverse equilibrium. The tensile and compressive response of the concrete model is related to the fracture energy, thus ensuring objectivity of numerical results. In the presence of reinforcing steel the fracture energy should be adjusted according to criteria in modern design codes. The proposed beam element is validated by comparing the numerical response with experimental measurements of the monotonic and cyclic behavior of different type of specimens: shear deficient columns and beam, squat and slender shear walls. These correlation studies confirm the promise of the proposed approach.


Numerical Modeling of Electromagnetic Scattering from Periodic Structures by Transformation Electromagnetics
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-09-22)
The transformation electromagnetics is applied to the modeling of electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures in conjunction with the finite element method with periodic boundary conditions. In a unit cell of periodic structure, a uniform mesh is used over a flat surface and the arbitrary periodic surface is modeled by a coordinate transformation. The major advantage of this approach is that arbitrary geometries can be handled by using a single and simple mesh. Therefore, repeated computations (such...

Two-dimensional Monte-Carlo simulations of lattice polymers were carried out employing Lennard-Jones (LJ) type intramolecular interactions. The shape-dependent properties of these polymers were studied over a large range of interaction parameters and temperatures. The variation of the critical constant was also analysed. Two-dimensional surfaces of sections were used to determine the portions of the parameter space which corresponded to theta-conditions. The behaviour of LJ polymers far from theta-condition...

The structural stability and energetics of As, Sb and Bi microclusters having 3-7 atoms have been investigated by using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function (PEF), which comprises two- and three-body atomic interactions. The PEF satisfies both bulk cohesive energy per atom and bulk structural stability exactly. It has been found that the most stable structures of As3, Sb3 and Sb4 microclusters are in linear form with D-infinity-h symmetry, Bi7 is in hexagonal pyramid form with ...
Numerical Solution and Stability Analysis of Transient MHD Duct Flow
Tezer, Münevver (2018-11-01)
This paper simulates the 2D transient magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow in a rectangular duct in terms of the velocity of the fluid and the induced magnetic field by using the radial basis function (RBF) approximation. The inhomogeneities in the Poisson’s type MHD equations are approximated using the polynomial functions (1+r) and the particular solution is found satisfying both the equations and the boundary conditions (no-slip and insulated walls). The Euler scheme is used for advancing the solution to ste...
Segregation formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters: MD simulations and DFT calculations
KURBAN, MUSTAFA; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2017-04-01)
Surface and core formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters are investigated by using classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and density functional theory (DFT.) calculations. In this work, MD simulations of the CdZnTe clusters are performed by means of LAMMPS by using bond order potential (BOP). MD simulations are carried out at different temperatures to study the segregation phenomena of Cd, Zn and Te atoms, and deviation of clusters and heat capacity. After that,...
