Abstract

Currently there is an increasing focus on the transmission of low frequency sound in buildings, as sources such as road and air traffic or even home theatre subwoofers become part of everyday life for many people. Hence, development of efficient and accurate methods for prediction [...]

Abstract

The behavior and response of pipelines subjected to slip fault movement is studied by numerical simulations as well as experimental setup. A finite element modeling is also developed via ABAQUS software. In this study, an artificial accelerogram is applied to the system and matched [...]

Abstract

The present study addresses the retrofitting of running-bond masonry walls through the application of oriented strand board (OSB) timber panels aiming to increase the masonry flexural strength and deformation capacity under out-of-plane actions. This paper presents the numerical [...]
