    A Piecewise Linear Isotropic-Kinematic Hardening Model with Semi-Implicit Rules for Cyclic Loading and Its Parameter Identification

    M. Ohsaki1, T. Miyamura2, J. Y. Zhang3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.111, No.4, pp. 303-333, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2016.111.303

    Abstract A simple constitutive model, called semi-implicit model, for cyclic loading is proposed for steel materials used for structures such as building frames in civil engineering. The constitutive model is implemented in the E-Simulator, which is a software package for large-scale seismic response analysis. The constitutive relation is defined in an algorithmic manner based on the piecewise linear combined isotropic-kinematic hardening. Different rules are used for the first and subsequent loading states to incorporate characteristics such as yield plateau and Bauschinger effect of rolled mild steel materials. An optimization method is also presented for parameter identification More >

    A BEM Approach for Inelastic Analysis of Beam-Foundation Systems under Cyclic Loading

    E.J. Sapountzakis1, A.E. Kampitsis2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.87, No.2, pp. 97-126, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.087.097

    Abstract In this paper a Boundary Element Method (BEM) is developed for the inelastic analysis of beams of arbitrarily shaped constant cross section having at least one axis of symmetry, resting on nonlinear inelastic foundation. The beam is subjected to arbitrarily distributed or concentrated vertical cyclic loading along its length, while its edges are subjected to the most general boundary conditions. A displacement based formulation is developed and inelastic redistribution is modelled through a distributed plasticity model exploiting material constitutive laws and numerical integration over the cross sections. An incremental - iterative solution strategy is adopted More >

    Analysis of Partially Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Columns subjected to Cyclic Loadings

    T. Ishizawa1, M. Iura1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 121-130, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.121

    Abstract A one-dimensional model is proposed for numerical analysis of partially concrete-filled steel tubular (PCFST) columns subjected to cyclic loadings. The present formulation does not require experimental results nor shell analysis to obtain the constitutive equation of the model. The material properties and dimensions of PCFST columns are required for numerical analysis of the present model. The PCFST columns are assumed to consist of elastic beam and base plastic-hinge region in which steel local buckling is observed. Two parameters are introduced in order to express hardening phenomena of PCFST columns subjected to cyclic loading. Resisting forces More >
