Modeling multilayered wire strands, a strategy based on 3D finite element beam-to-beam contacts - Part II: Application to wind-induced vibration and fatigue analysis of overhead conductors
Abstract: Wind-induced loads cause electrical transmission line fatigue. Evaluation procedures consider descriptors such as deflection amplitude (Yb) and far-field vibration (fymax), which cannot relate endurance limits ...
Implementation of a simplified method in design of hysteretic dampers for isolated highway bridges
Abstract: Using seismic isolation systems for highway bridges modifies the structure’s principal vibration modes, effectively reducing the seismic base shear conveyed from the superstructure to the substructure. However, ...
Full-scale measurement of the response of a CPV tracker structure prototype under wind load
The response of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) structures under wind loading has to be carefully predicted to optimize the design of these structures. Designers normally rely on wind tunnel tests and equivalent static ...
