    Seismic Vulnerability Analysis of Single-Story Reinforced Concrete Industrial Buildings with Seismic Fortification

    Jieping Liu1, Lingxin Zhang1,*, Haohao Zhang2, Tao Liu1
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 123-142, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.04486
    Abstract As there is a lack of earthquake damage data for factory buildings with seismic fortifications in China, seismic vulnerability analysis was performed by numerical simulation in this paper. The earthquake-structure analysis model was developed with considering the influence of uncertainties of the ground motion and structural model parameters. The small-size sampling was conducted based on the Latin hypercube sampling and orthogonal design methods. Using nonlinear analysis, the seismic vulnerability curves and damage probability matrix with various seismic fortification intensities (SFI) were obtained. The seismic capacity of the factory building was then evaluated. The results showed that, with different designs at… More >

    Flexural Property of String Beam of Pre-Stressed Glulam Based on Influence of Regulation and Control

    Nan Guo1,*, Wenbo Wang1, Hongliang Zuo1
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 143-179, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.04640
    Abstract Applying pre-stress in glulam beam can reduce its deformation and make full use of the compressive strength of wood. However, when the glulam with low strength and the pre-stressed steel with high strength form combined members, materials of high strength can’t be fully utilized. Therefore, this study puts forward the idea of regulating and controlling string beam of pre-stressed glulam. By regulating and controlling the pre-stress, a part of the load borne by the wood is allocated to the pre-stressed tendon, which is equivalent to completing a redistribution of internal force, thus realizing the repeated utilization of the wood strength… More >

    Crack Detection and Localization on Wind Turbine Blade Using Machine Learning Algorithms: A Data Mining Approach

    A. Joshuva1, V. Sugumaran2
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 181-203, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.00287
    Abstract Wind turbine blades are generally manufactured using fiber type material because of their cost effectiveness and light weight property however, blade get damaged due to wind gusts, bad weather conditions, unpredictable aerodynamic forces, lightning strikes and gravitational loads which causes crack on the surface of wind turbine blade. It is very much essential to identify the damage on blade before it crashes catastrophically which might possibly destroy the complete wind turbine. In this paper, a fifteen tree classification based machine learning algorithms were modelled for identifying and detecting the crack on wind turbine blades. The models are built based on… More >

    Load Test and Fatigue Life Evaluation for Welded Details in Taizhou Yangtze River Bridge

    Meiling Zhuang1,2, Changqing Miao1,2,*, Rongfeng Chen1,2
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 205-225, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.04654
    Abstract To study the fatigue performance of welded details in the orthotropic steel decks, the steel box girder for Taizhou Yangtze River Bridge is taken as the research object. Based on the field monitoring data obtained from the load test, the stress response test of the orthotropic steel box girder under wheel loads is performed and the correctness of the vehicle test data obtained from the field monitoring data also have been verified by the numerical results of the finite element model. Based on the Miner linear cumulative damage theory, the S-N curve of the Eurocode3 specification is referenced, and the… More >

    Bending and Rolling Shear Properties of Cross-Laminated Timber Fabricated with Canadian Hemlock

    Gengmu Ruan1, Haibei Xiong1,*, Jiawei Chen1
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 227-246, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.04743
    Abstract In this paper, bending performance and rolling shear properties of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels made from Canadian hemlock were investigated by varied approaches. Firstly, three groups of bending tests of three-layer CLT panels with different spans were carried out. Different failure modes were obtained: bending failure, rolling shear failure, bonding line failure, local failure of the outer layer and mixed failure mode. Deflection and strain measurements were employed to calculate the global and local modulus of elastic (MOE), compared with the theoretical value. In addition, a modified compression shear testing method was introduced to evaluate the rolling shear strength and… More >
