Stability of laterally unsupported shear links in eccentrically braced frames
Özkılıç, Yasin Onuralp ; Zeybek, Ozer; Topkaya, Cem (2021-12-01)
I-shaped links in eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) are susceptible to lateral or lateral torsional buckling when subjected to cyclic link rotations. Lateral bracing should be provided at the ends of the I-shaped links in order to prevent these failures. Requirements for such braces are available in widely used design specifications such as the AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC341-16) and EC8. These requirements limit the use of I-shaped links in bridge piers and elevator shafts....
Stability of Unsteady MHD Flow in a Rectangular Duct
Tezer, Münevver (2018-06-29)
In this study, the time dependent and coupled magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations are solved in the cross-section of a rectangular pipe (duct) by using the radial basis function approximation (RBF). The MHD studies electrically conducting fluids in the presence of a magnetic field. It has wide range of industrial applications such as MHD generators, MHD pumps, plasma physics and nuclear fusion [1]. The velocity and the induced magnetic field are obtained by approximating the inhomogeneities using thin ...

Stability of beams in steel eccentrically braced frames
Yigitsoy, Gul; Topkaya, Cem; Okazaki, Taichiro (2014-05-01)
When an eccentrically braced frame (EBF) is subjected to a severe seismic event, large axial force and bending moments are produced in the beam outside of the link Designers face significant difficulties in meeting the capacity design requirement to keep these beams elastic. On the other hand, previous research suggests that controlled yielding in the beams is not detrimental to EBF performance as long as stability of the beam is maintained. A computational study was undertaken to investigate the stability ...
Stability of a Compass Gait Walking Model with Series Elastic Ankle Actuation
Kerimoglu, Deniz; Morgul, Omer; Saranlı, Uluç (2015-07-31)
Passive dynamic walkers exhibit stable human-like walking on inclined planes. The simplest model of this behavior is the well known passive compass gait (PCG) model, which consists of a point mass at the hip and two stick legs. Due to their passive nature, these systems rely on a sloped ground to recover energy lost to ground collisions. A variety of methods have been proposed to eliminate this requirement by using different actuation methods. In this study, we propose a simple model to investigate how seri...
