AbstractExperimental data are presented from low cycle fatigue tests of structural steel components. In thesetests the failure modes of local buckling in beam flanges and fracture at weldments were st..
SummaryIn the paper a recently proposed method for damage localization and quantification of RC-structuresfrom response measurements is tested on experimental data. The method investigated requires at..
a b s t r a c tThis paper presents an analytical procedure for determining ductility damage indices using staticcollapse mechanism analysis for ductile reinforced concrete (RC) frames subjected to pre..
AbstractIn Endurance Time (ET) method, structures are subjected to gradually intensifying accelerograms and their performance is judged based onthe maximum time duration in which they can satisfy the ..
AbstractAn improved damage detection method based on the concept of Element Modal Strain Damage Index is introduced.The proposed methods attempts to address some of the weaknesses of the damage detect..
