Strength and stability criteria for thin-walled stainless steel circular hollow section members under bending
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, OXON, ENGLAND, 2005-10)
A series of tests consisting of various cross-section geometries were performed on structural stainless steel circular hollow sections (CHS) subjected to bending. The test program comprised a total of eight tests on CHS ...
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 ...
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 ...
Corrosion of Reinforcement in Relation to Presence of Defects at the Interface Between Steel and Concrete
(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 1801 ALEXANDER BELL DR, RESTON, VA 20191-4400 USA, 2005-08)
In this study, steel-concrete interface defects were analyzed in order to define their potential to induce corrosion. Various types of steel-concrete interface defects were classified into two main groups: macrodefects and ...
FE based mode interaction analysis of thin-walled steel box columns under axial compression
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, OXON, ENGLAND, 2005-06)
This paper presents the Finite Element (FE) analysis based mode interaction analysis of thin-walled steel box columns under axial compression. Earlier theoretical results on the optimum design of axially compressed box ...
