Numerical modelling of reinforced concrete pressure tunnels using the overlapping lattice method
Işık, Gökberk; Tuncay, Kağan; Department of Earthquake Studies (2019)
Pressure tunnels transmit water from the reservoir to the turbines of hydroelectric power plants. The computational studies conducted to understand the behavior and shed light on the design guides of pressure tunnels were scarcely validated with experimental data as experimental work on pressure tunnels is very limited. Recent experimental studies on reinforced concrete pressure tunnels carried out at Middle East Technical University (METU), for the first time, allow computational models to be validated wit...
Numerical modeling of cold-formed steel sheathed shear walls under lateral loading
Topçuoğlugil , Yağmur; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Cold-formed steel (CFS) structural systems have been used increasingly in seismically active regions. Shear walls consisting of CFS framing and sheathing panels constitute one type of lateral force resisting system for such CFS framed buildings. The purpose of this study is to develop an efficient numerical model to predict the lateral load response of shear walls that are framed with CFS profiles and sheathed with oriented strand board (OSB) panels. Numerical modeling of shear walls was conducted in OpenSe...

Numerical solution of magnetohydrodynamic flow problems using the boundary element method
Tezer, Münevver (2005-03-18)
A boundary element solution is given for a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow problem in a rectangular duct having insulating walls, in terms of velocity and induced magnetic field. The coupled velocity and magnetic field equations are first transformed into decoupled nonhomogeneous convection-diffusion type equations and then finding particular solutions, the homogeneous equations are solved using the boundary element method (BEM). The fundamental solutions of the decoupled homogeneous equations themselves are...
