Seismic Loads

Earthquakes are a way of life on Earth, and, whether you live in an area that is often affected by earthquakes or not, every building, every road, every bridge, and, in fact, almost everything constructed by humans in which we walk, sleep, live, sit, or visit, has to be constructed to withstand an earthquake, by following local, regional, or national codes, laws, and regulations. Further to this, the science and engineering behind these constructions go further than what is mandated by government as a part of their practice. All construction, and, in general, all life on Earth, has some risk of seismic impacts. A comprehensive description of any seismic action may be given only on a probabilistic basis and, in general, is very bulky and quite uncertain. However, for a variety of structures or systems that meet fairly simple models of behavior during earthquakes, a general description of the seismic action is not required, for prediction of the status of such facilities or systems may be sufficient to define one or more common parameters of seismic impact. Thus, it makes sense to search for optimal parameters of influence in which optimality is understood with the greatest ease with sufficient information. This book contains a description of several models of seismic effects and examples of implementation of these models at specific sites. Using this information, scientists and engineers can design structures that are stronger, safer, and longer-lasting. It is a must-have for any scientist, engineer, or student working in or researching seismic loads and constructions with a view toward withstanding seismic activity.

32,12 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores cognitive behavior among Internet of Things. Using a series of current and futuristic examples - appliances, personal assistants, robots, driverless cars, customer care, engineering, monetization, and many more - the book covers use cases, technology and communication aspects of how machines will support individuals and organizations. This book examines the Cognitive Things covering a number of important questions: • What are Cognitive Things? • What applications can be driven from Cognitive Things - today and tomorrow? • How will these Cognitive Things collaborate with each and other, with individuals and with organizations? • What is the cognitive era? How is it different from the automation era? • How will the Cognitive Things support or accelerate human problem solving? • Which technical components make up cognitive behavior? • How does it redistribute the work-load between humans and machines? • What types of data can be collected from them and shared with external organizations? • How do they recognize and authenticate authorized users? How is the data safeguarded from potential theft? Who owns the data and how are the data ownership rights enforced? Overall, Sathi explores ways in which Cognitive Things bring value to individuals as well as organizations and how to integrate the use of the devices into changing organizational structures. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate how innovators are already benefiting from the initial explosion of devices and data. Business executives, operational managers, and IT professionals will understand the fundamental changes required to fully benefit from cognitive technologies and how to utilize them for their own success.

Fire Design of Steel Structures - EC1: Actions ...
62,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explains and illustrates the rules that are given in the Eurocodes for designing steel structures subjected to fire. After the first introductory chapter, Chapter 2 explains how to calculate the mechanical actions (loads) in the fire situation based on the information given in EN 1990 and EN 1991. Chapter 3 is dedicated to the models which represent the thermal actions created by the fire. Chapter 4 describes the procedures to be used to calculate the temperature of the steelwork from the temperature of the compartment and Chapter 5 shows how the information given in EN 1993-1-2 is used to determine the load bearing capacity of the steel structure. Chapter 6 presents the essential features that characterize the advanced calculation models, for thermal and mechanical response. The methods used to evaluate the fire resistance of bolted and welded connections are described in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 describes a computer program called `Elefir-EN? which is based on the simple calculation model given in the Eurocode and allows designers to quickly and accurately calculate the performance of steel components in the fire situation. Chapter 9 looks at the issues that a designer may be faced with when assessing the fire resistance of a complete building. This is done via a case study and addresses most of the concepts presented in the previous chapters. For this second edition the content has been revised and extended. The book contains some new sections, e.g. a comparison between the simple and the advanced calculation, as well as additional examples.

Triboluminescence - Theory, Synthesis, and Appl...
190,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book expounds on progress made over the last 35 years in the theory, synthesis, and application of triboluminescence for creating smart structures. It presents in detail the research into utilization of the triboluminescent properties of certain crystals as new sensor systems for smart engineering structures, as well as triboluminescence-based sensor systems that have the potential to enable wireless, in-situ, real time and distributed (WIRD) structural health monitoring of composite structures. The sensor component of any structural health monitoring (SHM) technology - measures the effects of the external load/event and provides the necessary inputs for appropriate preventive/corrective action to be taken in a smart structure - sits at the heart of such a system. This volume explores advances in materials properties and structural behavior underlying creation of smart composite structures and sensor systems for structural health monitoring of critical engineering structures, such as bridges, aircrafts, and wind blades.

Creating Freedom On Earth
4,06 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

No country on earth allows a person the freedom to act as he sees fit where his actions do not infringe upon the freedom of others. To speak against the government, in Africa, Middle East, Europe, or the USA. In some countries, you have to listen to the Friday Muslim prayers broadcast over load speakers into your home. Or listen to church bells on Sundays. A Christian cannot build a church in some countries to practice his/her religion. In the United States, a Muslim or a Christian Mormon cannot practice polygamy. Polyandry, where one woman can marry more than one husband, is also prohibited in some countries. A Hindu Jain monk, in most places in the world, cannot freely practice his religious belief which allows for being naked all the time, whether walking the public streets or otherwise. Neither can a native of the Amazon Yanomamo tribe, or any person, such as a naturist, who simply wants to live a nude lifestyle. Certain foods are being prohibited. Say you like to eat trans-fat knowing the harm it may cause. Now you cannot order it in some places, by law. The list goes on and on. And yet, like a live frog that is in a pan with water heat being raised gradually, it does not recognize what is going on, and dies instead of jumping out of the boiling water to save its life. Such is the state of freedom on earth, it is being suffocated for many who want it alive.
