    • Damping behaviour of plant-fibre composite materials 

      Le Guen, Marie Joo (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)
      The vibration damping property of plant fibres composites is of practical interest for commercial applications of biobased and eco-composites. Damping behaviour has been observed by experimentation and exploited in the ...
    • Experimentally Validated FEA Models of HF2V Damage Free Steel Connections for Use in Full Structural Analyses 

      Desombre, J.; Rodgers, G.W.; MacRae, G.A.; Rabczuk, T.; Dhakal, R.P.; Chase, J.G. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
      The aim of this research is to model the behaviour of recently developed high force to volume (HF2V) passive energy dissipation devices using a simple finite element (FE) model. Thus, the end result will be suitable for ...
    • High-Force-to-Volume Seismic Dissipators Embedded in a Jointed PreCast Concrete Frame 

      Rodgers, G.W.; Solberg, K.M.; Mander, J.B.; Chase, J.G.; Bradley, B.A.; Dhakal, R.P. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      An experimental and computational study of an 80 percent scale precast concrete 3D beam-column joint subassembly designed with high force-to-volume (HF2V) dampers and damage-protected rocking connections is presented. A ...
    • Re-shaping hysteretic behaviour using semi-active resetable device dampers 

      Chase, J.G.; Mulligan, K.J.; Gue, A.; Alnot, T.; Rodgers, G.W.; Mander, J.B.; Elliott, R.B.; Deam, B.L.; Cleeve, L.; Heaton, D. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering.University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering.University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2006)
      Semi-active dampers and actuators hold significant promise for their ability to add supplemental damping and reduce structural response, particularly under earthquake loading. However, to date, very little large-scale ...
    • A simplified model for mitral valve dynamics 

      Moorhead, K.T.; Paeme, S.; Chase, J.G.; Kolh, P.; Pierard, L.; Hann, C.E.; Dauby, P.C.; Desaive, T. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
      Located between the left atrium and the left ventricle, the mitral valve controls flow between these two cardiac chambers. Mitral valve dysfunction is a major cause of cardiac dysfunction and its dynamics are little known. ...
