A procedure on ground motion selection and scaling for nonlinear response of simple structural systems
Ay, Bekir Özer (2012-10-01)
This study presents a ground-motion selection and scaling methodology that preserves the basic seismological features of the scaled records with reduced scatter in the nonlinear structural response. The methodology modifies each strong-motion recording with known fundamental seismological parameters using the estimations of ground-motion prediction equations for a given target hazard level. It provides robust estimations on target building response through scaled ground motions and calculates the dispersion...
AN ANALYSIS TO IMPROVE STABILITY OF DRIVE-MODE OSCILLATIONS IN CAPACITIVE VIBRATORY MEMS GYROSCOPES
Alper, S. E.; Sahin, K.; Akın, Tayfun (2009-01-29)
This paper presents an analysis showing that it is possible to determine the factors that limit the stability of drive-mode oscillations of a vibratory MEMS gyroscope with precise modeling. Specifically, unwanted electrical resonance characteristics of the gyroscope drive-mode are analyzed together with analytical expressions, whereas the results of the theoretical analyses are verified both by simulations and measurements, which agree very well. It is demonstrated that the stability of the drive-mode oscil...
AN ESTIMATION OF THE MAXIMUM INTERSTORY DRIFT RATIO FOR SHEAR-WALL TYPE STRUCTURES
Koleva, G.; Sandu, I.; Akkar, S. (2008-05-20)
In displacement-based engineering, the maximum interstory drift ratio (MIDR) is one of the most influential parameters for evaluating the seismic performance of existing structural systems. MIDR is also a key parameter in force-based designs satisfying serviceability lit-nits for new structural systems. A set of predictive equations is derived for estimating MIDR on shear-wall systems with fundamental periods ranging from 0.5 to 1.25 s. The equations are derived from a recently compiled ground-motion datase...
Direct use of PGV for estimating peak nonlinear oscillator displacements
Akkar, Dede Sinan; Kucukdogan, Bilge (2008-10-10)
A predictive model is presented for estimating the peak inelastic oscillator displacements (S-d,S-ie) from peak ground velocity (PGV). The proposed model accounts for the variation of S-d,S-ie for bilinear hysteretic behavior under constant ductility (mu) and normalized lateral strength ratio (R) associated with postyield stiffness ratios of alpha = 0 and 5%. The regression coefficients are based on a ground-motion database that contains dense-to-stiff soil site recordings at distances of up to 30 km from t...
A simulation study on the comparison of methods for the analysis of longitudinal count data
İnan, Gül; İlk Dağ, Özlem; Department of Statistics (2009)
The longitudinal feature of measurements and counting process of responses motivate the regression models for longitudinal count data (LCD) to take into account the phenomenons such as within-subject association and overdispersion. One common problem in longitudinal studies is the missing data problem, which adds additional difficulties into the analysis. The missingness can be handled with missing data techniques. However, the amount of missingness in the data and the missingness mechanism that the data ha...
