Vibration characteristics of steel framed structures are affected by accurate modelling of the mass and stiffness matrices of beam and column members. In this regards, wide flange sections are the most popularly used steel sections, and calculation of axial, flexural and shear responses of these sections become critical. In this study, a mixed formulation frame finite element is developed from three-fields Hu-Washizu-Barr functional. Consistent mass matrix of the element is obtained such that determination of vibration frequencies of members with varying geometry and material distribution is modelled without any need for specification of different displacement shape functions for each individual case. An accurate shear correction coefficient for wide flange I and H sections is taken into account in order to get closer match with exact solutions. Comparative study is undertaken by the use of proposed beam finite element solutions and 3 dimensional solid finite element analyses in ANSYS. Results indicate that proposed beam finite element can get fundamental and higher modes of vibration for varying aspect ratios of wide flange beams and columns.

Consistent matrices for steel framed structures with semi-rigid connections accounting for shear deformation and rotary inertia effects
ÖZEL, HALİL FIRAT; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Tasbahji, Tayseer (2017-04-15)
Estimation of vibration characteristics and thus the seismic loads acted on steel framed structures are influenced by the presence of semi-rigid connections and accurate modeling of shear deformations and rotary inertia effects. This paper presents a finite element model that takes into account all these effects in order to calculate consistent stiffness and mass matrices. The formulation of the element utilizes three fields Hu-Washizu-Barr principle, where the need for displacement shape function approxima...
Modeling of the nonlinear behavior of semi-rigid connections in steel framed structures and its influence on three dimensional analysis of structural systems
Özel, Halil Fırat; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In steel frame structures, introducing the nonlinear force-deformation behavior of frame members with flexible joints will show closer results to the actual behavior. In this thesis, a mixed formulation frame finite element is developed from a nonlinear force-based method that can include localized semi-rigid connection response. The formulation of the element uses the three-fields Hu-Washizu-Barr principle, where displacement shape function approximation is omitted with the use of a force-based approach. T...
Stress analysis of symmetric aluminum composite-laminated beams under a bending moment: Materially nonlinear only
Sayman, O; Belevi, M; Altinhan, M (SAGE Publications, 2005-01-01)
In this study, an elastic-plastic stress analysis is carried out on symmetric laminated composite beams subjected to a bending moment. The composite beam is to be strain hardening. The Bernoulli and Euler hypotheses are assumed to be valid. The Tsai-Hill theory is used as a yield criterion in the solution. The solution is carried out for (90 degrees/0 degrees)(2), (30 degrees/-30 degrees)(2), (45 degrees/-45 degrees)(2), and (60 degrees/-60 degrees)(2) orientations. The bending moment is to be found the hig...
Free flexural( or bending) vibrations analysis of doubly stiffened, composite, orthotropic base plates and panels (in aero-structural systems)
Çil, Kürşad; Yüceoğlu, Umur; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2003)
In this Thesis, the problem of the أFree Vibrations Analysis of Doubly Stiffened Composite, Orthotropic and/or Isotropic, Base Plates or Panels (with Orthotropic Stiffening Plate Strips)ؤ is investigated. The composite plate or panel system is made of an أOrthotropic and/or Isotropic Base Plateؤ stiffened or reinforced by adhesively bonded أUpper and Lower Orthotropic Stiffening Plate Stripsؤ. The plates are assumed to be the أMindlin Platesؤ connected by relatively very thin adhesive layers. The general pr...
Numerical and Experimental Determination of the Residual Stress State in Multipass Welded API 5L X70 Plates
Garipova, Nuriya; Batıgün, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2014-01-01)
Residual stress distributions in multipass welded API 5L X70 steel plates were determined by numerical and experimental methods. SYSWELD finite element software was used for numerical simulations. Microstructure variations were also considered for calculation of residual stresses. The continuous cooling transformation diagram was obtained via JMatPro software. The results showed that residual stress distribution is sensitive to number of weld passes, and microstructure changes. The simulation results were c...
