Dynamic behaviour of seismically isolated cylindrical offshore storage tanks
(AMER SOC MECHANICAL ENGINEERS, THREE PARK AVENUE, NEW YORK, NY 10016-5990 USA, 2005)
Cylindrical offshore storage tanks are mainly used to store critical liquids such as petroleum and LNG. Failure of these tanks after an earthquake not only results in high financial losses but can also create an environmental ...
Dynamic behavior and optimization of offshore gravity platforms
(ASME-AMER SOC MECHANICAL ENG, THREE PARK AVE, NEW YORK, NY 10016-5990 USA, 2005-05)
This paper presents the results of a dynamic investigation with the aim of determining both the optimal shape of an offshore gravity platform column and the required mass of the infill water The natural frequency formulation ...
Parametric Study of the Seismic Response of Base Isolated Liquid Storage Tanks with Lead-Core Elastomeric Bearings
(Polish Acad Sciences Inst Physics, Al Lotnikow 32-46, Pl-02-668 Warsaw, Poland, 2014-02)
Field reports from past earthquakes indicate that liquid storage tanks are quite susceptible to earthquake related damages due to the sloshing motion of the contained liquid and that the failure of these structures can ...
Snow induced collapse of hail protection canopies
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, The Boulevard, Langford Lane, Kidlington, Oxford Ox5 1Gb, England, 2017-09)
This paper addresses the snow induced collapse of hail protection canopies of a major car dealership in Istanbul, Turkey. Each of them with different plan dimensions has been built to provide an enclosed space of over ...
Blast Response of Slabs in ReinforcedConcrete Buildings
This study presents the response of reinforced concrete slabs in building structures exposed to blast loads. The mid-span displacements, support rotations, and damage patterns were investigated for a varying charge mass ...
Sloshing Displacement Measurements Based on Morphological Image Analysis
Sloshing of the contained liquid is an important issue, which needs to be dealt with in the design of moving liquid storage tanks, such as fuel tanks subjected to earthquakes. Numerical methods such as the finite element ...
