(Shock and Vibration Information Center, 1989)
This paper forms a literature survey on lumped and distributed parameter, linear, viscously damped, dynamic systems, possessing non-classical modes.
Noise and Vibration study for the Hellenic Navy Offshore Patrol Vessels
Prelemenary free hull girder vibration study of offshore patrol vessel of Hellenic Navy
Torsional design criteria in building codes and comparison with more accurate modeling using structural optimization tools
(4th International Conference on Computational Methods in Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, 2013)
It is widely accepted that seismic design philosophies do not follow the efficiency of seismic analysis methods is quite remarkable. Torsionally unbalanced structures, is a common field where any of the proposed design ...
Frequency Response of Nonproportionally Damped, Lumped Parameter, Linear Dynamic Systems
(Technical Committee on Vibration and Sound, 1990)
The frequency response of nonproportionally (or nonclassically or non-Raleigh) damped linear lumped mass systems is discussed here. The exact method, via Laplace transforms, is presented and the practical difficulties ...
Virtual Reality as a Decision Making Tool in Construction Management
Several decades of research and development placed new tools in the hands of engineers, builders, supervisors, surveyors, contractors and all people associated with the construction industry. In this paper, we are referring ...
The Analysis of the Response of RC Buildings through Virtual Reality Techniques
Στο άρθρο παρουσιάζεται το σύγχρονο λογισμικό της εικονικής πραγματικότητας που έχουμε αναπτύξει, σαν εργαλείο αντισεισμικού σχεδιασμού κτηρίων από οπλισμένο σκυρόδεμα. Θα θέλαμε να επισημάνουμε ότι οποιαδήποτε λεκτική ...
Simplified Numerical Modeling of Elevated Silos for Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis
Silos are industrial facilities used for storing a huge range of different materials. They should be designed to resist several loading conditions, and their seismic behaviour, which strongly depends on the geometrical and ...
Historical tour of tour-ism in cyprus
(Ministry of education and culture of the republic of Cyprus, 2012-08-29)
The tourist industry in Cyprus, from its early beginning until now, has traveled a path of more than one century. Tourism on the island makes its first steps during the British rule. It establishes itself as an influential ...
Lumped Systems with Nonproportional Damping
The time domain response of non-proportionally damped or non-classical normal mode or non-Rayleigh linear lumped parameter systems, as otherwise called, is derived. Modal analysis is used to transform the governing equations ...
Overview of property taxation systems
Property taxes are one of the traditional revenue sources for most governments of the world, and have existed for a very long time. The tax is collected at different administration levels, ranging from the national to the ...
