The U-transformation method, a new analytical method, is very powerful in the static and dynamic analyses of structures with cyclic periodic properties. using the U-transformation method on a cyclic periodic structure is equivalent to projecting the orthogonal mode subspace displacement vector...
A substantial body of literature exists on the flexural elastic buckling problem for prismatic members. The contribution made by this paper is to show how this knowledge can be immediately exploited to solve torsional buckling problems, made analogous if the correct kinematic and boundary...
The U-transformation method can be used to uncouple linear simultaneous equations with cyclic bi-periodic properties. For a system consisting of masses and springs with cyclic bi-periodicity, this paper presents a procedure demonstrating how to apply the U-transformation technique twice in order...
Steel-concrete composite flooring systems using steel sections with tapered webs are very attractive from an economical point of view, combining efficient use of steel, wide spans, rapid erection and easy access for services. However, the full economic exploitation of the composite tapered beam...
As corrosion is a common problem in steel reinforced concrete (RC), fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) reinforcement, that is corrosion resistant, has gained the attention of structural engineers. When overloaded, structural components must behave in a ductile fashion to provide adequate warning of...
Thin-walled shell structures of a circular cylindrical shape are widely used in structural engineering to serve in applications such as silos, tanks or chimneys. The design of such structures poses some considerable challenges to structural engineers as the load carrying behaviour of cylindrical...
