K.K. H KIRAN; Jagadish G Kori

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, , Pages 81-107

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.141294.1038

Abstract
  Shelter is one of the main component of the living creature, it should be safe, uneconomical, hygenic and protective. Now a days shelter should be protective from blast load due to terrorist attack, nuclear explosive, chemical reactions occurring inside the building may be internal blast or external ...  Read More

27. Modelling and Simulation of Reinforced Concrete Bridges with varying percentages of Shape Memory Alloy Rods

Samson Olalekan Odeyemi; Adeola Abdullahi Adedeji

Volume 1, Issue 4 , Autumn 2018, , Pages 65-78

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.141829.1040

Abstract
  Earthquakes constitute a major problem for mankind resulting in loss of lives and structures. Smart structural materials such as Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) suppress the structural vibration in a structure by adjusting the dynamic performance of the structure. SMA rods are unique for their shape memory ...  Read More

28. Flow and Pollutant Dispersion Model in a 2D Urban Street Canyons Using Computational Fluid Dynamics

Zahra Jandaghian

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, , Pages 83-93

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.122506.1014

Abstract
  A two-dimensional model is used to simulate temperature distribution, wind speed and pollutants dispersion within an isolated two-dimensional street canyon using SIMPLE algorithm in ANSYS Fluent version 16.2. The simulation is based on the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations coupled with ...  Read More

29. Use of Tuned Mass Dampers in Controlling the Vibrations of Steel Structures with Vertical Irregularity of Mass

Mehdi Babaei; Alireza Moniri

Volume 1, Issue 2 , Spring 2018, , Pages 83-94

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.137303.1035

Abstract
  One of the common methods of the inactively controlling structures subject to earthquakes is the use of Tuned Mass Damping (TMD) systems. These dampers consist of three major parameters, namely mass, damping and stiffness. TMDs generally reduce the response domain by influencing a mode, which is most ...  Read More

30. Flexural capacity prediction for reinforced concrete beams by group method of data handling approach

Alla Azimi; Reza Farahnaki

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, , Pages 108-118

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.136502.1033

Abstract
  Application of group method of data handling (GMDH) to predict the capacity of reinforced concrete beams strengthened with CFRP laminate has been investigated in this paper. The proposed model considers nine parameters including concrete compressive strength, width of beam, effective depth, area of tension ...  Read More

31. Seismic Assessment of Steel Moment Frames with Irregularity in Mass and Stiffness

Iman Faridmehr; Elahe Chabokan

Volume 1, Issue 4 , Autumn 2018, , Pages 79-101

http://dx.doi.org/10.22115/cepm.2018.141604.1039

Abstract
  Irregularity, consider to be one of the main reasons of buildings collapse in recent earthquakes. Irregularity also effects the seismic behavior and maximum capacity of structures. The effect of mass and stiffness irregularity was carried out in this research using static and dynamic analysis. Three ...  Read More
