In this paper, a force-based 2D frame element formulation with spread of inelasticity through the element and localized semi-rigid connections at beam, brace and column base regions is presented. Inelasticity along member lengths is captured through fiber discretization of monitoring sections; furthermore, defining any type of semi-rigid connection along element length does not require introduction of additional nodes and degrees of freedom to the system. An accurate shear correction coefficient for wide flange sections is also taken into account in order to get closer match of shear effects with respect to exact solutions. The proposed element is designated for the performance based analysis of steel structures, since considering the presence of semi-rigid connections at beam column, column base and brace end regions through analyses will provide more realistic representation of the actual behavior of a structure. The proposed model is tested through available analysis program for validation purpose of gusset plate flexibility on brace ends in frames and the effect of the semi-rigidity on column bases with altering beam to column connection flexibility.

Özel, Halil Fırat; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Karakaş, Zafer (null; 2016-09-21)
In this paper, a force-based three-dimensional frame finite element formulation with spread of inelasticity through the element and localized nonlinear semi-rigid connections is developed. The proposed model utilizes Euler-Bernoulli beam theory assumptions, and adopts fiber discretization of monitored sections along element length and section depth for the spread of inelasticity in order to capture axial force and biaxial bending moment interaction. Defining any type of semi-rigid either linear or nonlinear...
Modeling of the nonlinear behavior of steel framed structures with semi rigid connections
Sarıtaş, Afşin; Özel, Halil Fırat (null; 2015-07-21)
A mixed formulation frame finite element with internal semi-rigid connections is presented for the nonlinear analysis of steel structures. Proposed element provides accurate responses for spread of inelasticity along element length by monitoring the nonlinear responses of several crosssections, where spread of inelasticity over each section is captured with fiber discretization. Each material point on the section considers inelastic coupling between normal stress and shear stress. The formulation of the ele...
An Elastic-Plastic Beam Element
Eren, Ahmet M; Darendeliler, Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, a two node nonlinear elastic-plastic beam finite element is developed to analyze large deformations. The system of equations are derived from virtual work principle, and the updated Lagrangian formulation is used. Material is assumed to be isotropic and rate insensitive obeying J2-flow rule. Work hardening characteristics of material is considered and all nonlinear terms are included. For the two node iso-parametric beam element a layered model is used to analyze through-the-thickness distri...

Three-dimensional condensed asymmetrical node, variable grid, transmission-line matrix (TLM) method has been used in analyzing several millimeter waveguides on anisotropic substrates. The dispersion characteristics of image guides together with field and energy confinement properties at millimeter-wave frequencies have been investigated. Edge coupled microstrip line on a uniaxial substrate is analyzed for the even and odd mode dispersion characteristics. Finally the same analysis is repeated for bilateral f...
A boundary element formulation for axi-symmetric problems in poro-elasticity
Özyazıcıoğlu, Mehmet H; Özkan, M. Yener; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
A formulation is proposed for the boundary element analysis of poro-elastic media with axi-symmetric geometry. The boundary integral equation is reduced to a set of line integral equations in the generating plane for each of the Fourier coefficients, through complex Fourier series expansion of boundary quantities in circumferential direction. The method is implemented into a computer program, where the fundamental solutions are integrated by Gaussian Quadrature along the generator, while Fast Fourier Transf...
