1. Steel Plate Shear Wall with Different Infill Steel Plates

Mohammad Hossein Kashefizadeh; Mohammad Azimzadeh Koocheh; Behtash Amiri; Reza Esmaeilabadi

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, Pages 1-14


  The steel plate shear wall (SPSW) system is one of the most common and acceptable lateral-resisting structural systems for steel structures. Although the advantages of SPSW over the other structural systems are somehow well-known, the wall-farm interaction of the system is not comprehensively investigated. ...  Read More

2. Three-Dimensional Modelling of Concrete Mix Structure for Numerical Stiffness Determination

Mofid Mahdi; Iqbal Marie

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, Pages 15-27


  A three dimensional (3-D) numerical model with explicit representation of two distinctive phases is used for precise prediction of the stiffness and Poisson’s ratio of concrete mixture, CM. Using ANSYS code, a 3-D macro scale numerical finite elements model was developed. The aggregates size, shape ...  Read More

4. Modeling of the new boundary of reaction force based on particle collision in the smoothed particle hydrodynamics

L. Wang; P. Wang

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, Pages 46-66


  A new reaction force model of particle collision is built, which is based on the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. Combined with weakly compressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics and the artificial compressibility, the new model and a conventional reaction force model of Lennard-Jones ...  Read More

5. The Effects of Outrigger type and distribution on seismic behavior of super-tall building

Ali Ahani; Elshan Ahani; Hadi Abbaszadeh

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Summer 2018, Pages 67-80


  Seismic performance and behavior of super-tall building is one of significant place of doubt while using energy dissipated outriggers. To improve the seismic performance of super-tall building structures using outrigger is one common method; however, the performance and behavior of the outrigger varies ...  Read More

7. 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


  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
