    The aircraft design process is a loosely defined method used to balance many competing and demanding requirements to produce an aircraft that is strong, lightweight, economical and can carry an adequate payload while being sufficiently reliable to safely fly for the design life of the aircraft. Similar to, but more exacting than, the usual engineering design process, the technique is highly.

Effects of Damage and Redundancy on Structural Performance book and Tsopelas[4], [8], in their attempt to quantify the effect of redundancy, introduced two indices: a) redundancy-strength index rs, which expresses the ability of a structural system to redistribute stresses from yielded or failed elements towards elements with higher resistance, and b) redundancy-variation index rυ, which.

Chudoba, A. Scholzen, in Textile Fibre Composites in Civil Engineering, Discussion. This structural redundancy measured in the test can again be explained by the positive effect of the interaction between the strain-hardening behavior and smooth profile of tensile strains leading to an activation of larger area of the structure during the load transmission.

This book presents the latest research findings in the field of maintenance and safety of aging infrastructure. The invited contributions provide an overview of the use of advanced computational and/or experimental techniques in damage and vulnerability assessment as well as maintenance and retrofitting of aging structures and infrastructures such as buildings, bridges.

In this context, effects of material behavior, correlations, variabilities of resistances and loads, resistance sharing, structural damage, and number of members, on both the system reliability. As it is well known, redundancy contributes to an adequate structural performance, since as the number of resisting elements located in a given direction increases, better plastic stresses.

1 INTRODUCTION. Although the importance and the positive effects of structural redundancy have been long recognized, structural redundancy became the focus of research in earthquake-resistant design in the mid 80s and particularly after the Northridge and Kobe earthquakes.

Society of Civil Engineers established a building performance study (BPS) team to examine the damaged structure and make recommendations for the future. Team members possess expertise in structural, fire, and forensic engineering.

The BPS team’s analysis of the Pentagon and the damage resulting from the attack was conducted between Sep. Having extracted the hogging and sagging peaks from the low-frequency structural health monitoring signals, the Bayesian method is used to update the Rayleigh-distributed prior load effects.

The original and updated reliability and redundancy indexes of the ship cross-sections are evaluated, and the results are displayed in polar plots. Institute of Building Sciences.

The damage to the embassy was massive, especially internally. Although there was little structural damage to the five-story reinforced concrete building, the explosion reduced much of the interior to rubble—destroying windows, window frames, internal office partitions, and other fixtures on the rear side of.

While technology has changed exponentially, ASCE has continued to focus on making our world safer, healthier and more sustainable.". Structural redundancy is a key concept in structural engineering design (7,8), and refers to the ability of a structure to retain its function without catastrophic consequences — even when one or many parts of the structure fail.

This is accomplished by providing multiple redundant load paths so that if one load path fails during normal.

Redundancy in the structural system permits redistribution of internal forces in the event of failure of key elements. After experience in many earthquakes and much study and discussion, the engineering profession has generally concluded that more. STRUCTURAL Engineering, Mechanics and phenomena, high-order continuum, fracture and damage mechanics, solution adaptive techniques, inverse problems in mechanics, computational modeling to study the effects of blast, earthquakes and their impacts on structures made of a variety of materials.

The knock-on effect or secondary stressors of redundancy can also impact on a person’s mental health. Some of the factors include fear for the future, financial insecurity or a strain on relationships.

These can also be triggers for depression. It is really important to be aware if negative thoughts and emotions are taking hold or if a person. Structural Uniformity, Redundancy and Symmetry. It is proven that, if the strength, stiffness and mass of a structure is spread symmetrically and uniformly in elevation and plan, it would show far better seismic performance in comparison with structure that does not have such properties.

Another key element structural engineers must consider is redundancy: how to design and build multiple reinforcements for key beams and columns so the loss of, say, an exterior column due to an. 5. Lack of insights. Even when companies have the right business intelligence information available, it may be inaccessible or erroneously reported due to a.

This book employs exaggerated deformation shapes to emphasise deformations, and thereby, to develop the most needed intuition of structural behaviour of buildings during earthquakes and its consequences on earthquake-resistant design.

The book contains animations related to behaviour of the various buildings models used in this work. Bridge Redundancy Analysis. Bridge redundancy, as defined in the NCHRP Report (NCHRP, ), is the capability of a bridge to continue to carry loads after incurring damage or the failure of one or more of its members.

This capability is due to redistribution of the applied loads in transverse and/or longitudinal directions. In addition, the load combination mentioned is to take effect of seismic load effects.

According to article of ASCESeismic load effects are the axial, shear, and flexural member forces resulting from the application of horizontal and vertical seismic forces as set forth in Section STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY/REDUNDANCY UNDER EARTHQUAKES.

Structural reliability/redundancy has become a serious concern in the construction industry after the poor. Hereafter, numerical study was carried out to investigate the effect of fracture location and the effect of concrete slab on the redundancy level of the composite twin I-girder bridge system.

Results show that the fracture at the mid-span section is the most critical damage condition comparing to. These failures are a result of significant reduction—or total loss—of structural redundancy, leading to local or global/compound instability.

The objective of this article is to discuss the link between performance, design, and redundancy of geosynthetic reinforced structures.While the hold-down devices did not appear to significantly improve lateral-load deck performance in the two decks tested, these devices do provide a level of structural redundancy that may be needed in the event that lag screws used for the ledger connection were not properly detailed per the IRC Table R and correctly installed per.Ultimately, a set of analysis procedures and structural engineering guidelines are needed in order for engineers to specify such materials in both the retrofit of structures and in new construction.

Seismic Protection vs. Blast Protection. It is often stated that blast damage would be reduced if 'seismic-like' construction standards were.
