The sudden change in the load carrying capacityunder compresive loading, called buckling,may cause catastrophic failures. Therefore, determination of the first buckling and collapse loads of structural elements is essentialin preliminary design stages. Finite element (FE)analyses and structural testing are used to determine buckling characteristics of a structural element. However, in early design stages, FE analyses are time consuming and structural testing is costly. In this study, an artificial neural network tool(ANN)is used to reduce computational effort to determine buckling loads of integrally stiffened structural panels in early design stages. Reuslts of FE analyses are employed to train the ANN. Moreover, Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS) methodology is used to reduce the number of required FE analyses to generate database that artificial neural network is based on. Finally, a Multi-fidelity samplingalgorithmthat uses FE models with different mesh resolutionsis implemented for generation of the ANN database in order to reduce computational time spent for finite element analyses. Mean errors and fit performance model results are compared to determine accuracy of the neural network results.

Experimental investigation of the effect of temperature on friction pressure loss of polymeric drilling fluid through vertical concentric annulus
Gürçay, Kazım Onur; Akın, Serhat; Gücüyener, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2018)
Accurate estimation of friction pressure loss through annulus is important to avoid lost circulation, pipe sticking, kicks or more serious problems in drilling and well completion operations. Several studies have been performed to determine friction pressure loss experimentally and theoretically through pipe and annulus with the effects of eccentricity, pipe rotation, annulus geometry or flow regime by applying several rheological models. However, in addition to all of these factors, fluid rheology is depen...
Simulation of frictional sliding under impact shear loading
Çöker, Demirkan; Lykotrafitis, George; Rosakis, Ares J. (2004-12-01)
Results from recent and ongoing investigations of frictional sliding under dynamic loading conditions are discussed. The configuration analyzed consists of two identical elastic plates with an interface characterized by a rate- and state-dependent frictional law. The calculations are carried out within a frame-work where two constitutive relations are used: a volumetric constitutive relation between stress and strain and a surface constitutive relation that characterizes the frictional behavior of the inter...

Seismic behavior of concentrically braced frames designed to AISC341 and EC8 provisions

Steel concentrically braced frames (CBFs) are frequently used as efficient lateral load resisting systems to resist earthquake and wind loads. This paper focuses on high seismic applications where the brace members in CBFs dissipate energy through repeated cycles of buckling and yielding. Widely-used seismic provisions have somewhat different approaches for the seismic design of CBFs. The present study evaluates in detail the similarities and differences between the design philosophies and provisions used i...
