Force-Based Beam-Column Element with Multispring Models for Modelling Post-Tensioned Rocking Members
Post-tensioned rocking beams and columns are popularly used in earthquake-resistant structures because of their selfcentring and low-damage response characteristics. Rocking actions in these members arise from the ...
Performance of road bridges during the 14 November 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake
The transport infrastructure was majorly affected by the 14th November 2016 Kaikōura Earthquake. Severe vertical and horizontal peak ground accelerations generated high inertial forces, land-slides, and liquefaction. Most ...
Spatial variability in surficial Christchurch soils via 5 m shear wave velocity Vs5
This paper provides a summary of the development of a shear wave velocity (Vs) model for the greater urban area of Christchurch, New Zealand. The model is based on the application of the recently developed Christchurch-specific ...
Effects of background noises on nonlinear dynamics of a modelled thermoacoustic combustor
In this work, the effects of background noises on nonlinear dynamics of a modelled standing-wave thermoacoustic system with subcritical Hopf bifurcation behaviors are studied. These noises include (1) pressure-coupled ...
