Effects of Thermal Perturbations on the Equilibrium of the Subsurface
Professor Alessandro Rotta Loria
Geomaterials, geostructures and geosystems are subjected to continuous thermal perturbations. In the context of geoenergy exploitations that involve the harvesting or storage of thermal energy from or in the subsurface, these perturbations vary and last from seconds to decades.
Structural and Geotechnical Engineering Failure Investigations and Legal Disputes
Dr. Christine Beyzaei and Dr. Ezra Jampole
In an ideal world, an engineer’s involvement in a structure would end after construction is finished. But the reality is that many structures are subject to costly litigation or arbitration because of allegations of inadequate design or performance.
ASCE41-17 is a current US standard for seismic evaluation and retrofitting of existing buildings. Performance based method is used in ASCE 41 which is different in a number of ways from prescriptive method used in ASCE 7.
Numerical Modeling of Earthquake-Induced Ground Deformations
Professor Katerina Ziotopoulou
Non-linear dynamic analyses (NDAs) are widely used in engineering practice
Full-Scale Five-Story Building Shake Table Test
Dr. Michelle Chen
Intense earthquake ground motions can be devastating to communities, and can lead to years and even decades of recovery.
Materials and Processing for Aerostructures, Emerging Technologies and Future Needs
Dr. Teresa Kruckenberg
This presentation will cover the conventional materials, processing and des
This work presents a method for uncertainty propagation that is consistent with the “building-block approach” in which components of a system are
Analyze Uncertainties Associated with GMPE for PSHA
Dr. Chin-Hsiung Loh
In probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA), the standard practice is to se¬lect a set of appropriate ground motion prediction equations (GMP
