31. Vibration of Tensioned Beams with Intermediate Damper. II: Damper Near Support
Published: 4/1/2007
Authors: Joseph A Main, Nicholas P Jones
Abstract: Exact analytical solutions are used to investigate the complex eigenfrequencies of tensioned beams with a viscous damper attached transversely near a support, for which the complex eigenfrequencies remain fairly close to their undamped values. This p ...

32. Automated Extraction of Wind Data From ASOS (Automated Surface Observing System) Weather Reports
Published: 5/18/2006
Authors: Franklin T Lombardo, Joseph A Main
Abstract: Wind loads for use in structural design are based in part on extreme value analysis of historical wind speed data for the location of interest. In some cases wind direction data are also required to characterize the directionality of the local wind c ...

33. Damping of Stay-Cable Vibrations: Modeling Overview and Design Implications
Published: 4/25/2006
Authors: Joseph A Main, Nicholas P Jones
Abstract: Dampers have become widely accepted as an effective means of stay-cable vibration suppression and have been implemented on numerous bridges around the world. Dampers are typically attached to the stays transversely near the anchorages, and different ...

34. Combining Wind Pressure Databases With Structural Analysis To Predict Peak Responses For Rigid Buildings
Published: 9/12/2005
Author: Joseph A Main
Abstract: A procedure is described for the design of rigid buildings for wind loading. The procedure, based on the database-assisted design (DAD) approach, uses measured pressure time series in conjunction with influence coefficients obtained by linear, static ...

35. Interpolation Issues In the Estimation of Peak Internal Forces Using Wind Pressure Databases
Published: 9/12/2005
Author: Joseph A Main
Abstract: A procedure is presented that makes use of measured pressures to predict peak static responses of low buildings, for cases in which no wind tunnel model is available with dimensions matching those of the structure of interest. The proposed approach i ...

36. Impulsive Loading of Cellular Media in Sandwich Construction
Published: 7/31/2005
Authors: Joseph A Main, George A Gazonas
Abstract: Motivated by recent efforts to mitigate blast loading using energy absorbing materials, this paper investigates the uniaxial crushing of cellular media in sandwich construction under impulsive pressure loading. The cellular core material is modeled u ...
