51. Control of Hysteretic Structures Using H(inf) Algorithm and Stochastic Linearization Techniques
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Fahim Sadek, M Ben Ftima, S El-Borgi, G P McCormick, Michael A Riley
Abstract: This paper presents a robust static output feedback H(infinity) algorithm for control of hysteretic civil engineering structures subjected to earthquake ground motions. Hysteretic structures present a problem for control design and algorithm develop ...

52. Equivalent Number of Loading Cycles for the Seismic Testing of Passive Energy Dissipation Devices
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Michael A Riley
Abstract: Prototype testing of passive energy dissipation devices is required to verify their response characteristics and demonstrate their capacity to withstand the design loads. These tests usually consist of loading the devices with a defined number of cy ...

53. Data-Assisted Design for Wind Loading
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: Emil Simiu, Fahim Sadek, T Whalen, S Jang, L L Lu, S M Diniz, A Grazini, Michael A Riley
Abstract: Current ASCE Standard provisions on wind loads for low-rise building design are based on wind tunnel tests conducted at the University of Western Ontario in the 1970's. In spite of the advances they entailed at the time, those provisions are inadequa ...

54. Structural Reliability Estimates and Database-Assisted Design for Wind
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: F Minciarelli, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu, Mircea Grigoriu
Abstract: We propose a probabilistic methodology for developing improved estimates of extreme wind effects and load factors in standard provisions for wind loads. We obtained the following results: (1) the discrepancy between current estimates of safety indic ...

55. Peak Non-Gaussian Wind Effects for Data Base-Assisted Low-Rise Building Design
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Current procedures for estimating the peaks of the stochastic response of tall buildings to wind are based on the assumption that the response is Gaussian. Those procedures are therefore inapplicable to low-rise buildings, in which time histories of ...

57. Ultimate Capacities of Low-Rise Steel Frames in Turbulent Wind
Published: 7/1/2001
Authors: S Jang, L L Lu, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: This paper is a derivative of G2001-1392, Database-Assisted Wind Load Capacity Estimates for Low-Rise Steel Frames, by Jang, S., et al., intended for publication in the Journal of Structural Engineering.The original paper's abstract was:A comparative ...

58. Design Procedures for Structures with Supplemental Dampers
Published: 4/1/2001
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Michael A Riley
Abstract: Passive energy dissipation devices are used to reduce the damage from earthquakes by absorbing a portion of the earthquake-induced energy in structures. Wide acceptance of these devices in structures will depend on the availability of simplified met ...

59. NIST Research on Structural Performance of Housing Systems
Published: 4/1/2001
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Michael A Riley
Abstract: An outline of NIST research in the area of structural performance of housing systems is presented in this paper. The performance of wood-frame houses in past earthquakes and hur-ricanes is summarized, and the state-of-the-art in experimental and ana ...
