Abstract

A numerical method is proposed for the seismic response analysis of rectangular and cylindrical tanks accounting for non-linear hydrodynamic effects. The equations of motion are mapped from the physical to the computational domain by means of a change of variable. The numerical [...]

Abstract

Several optimized analysis and modelling strategies are provided in this work in order to address the seismic behaviour of cable-stayed bridges in the elastic range, including the expected error ranges in terms of the tower shape, the main span or the stiffness associated with the [...]
