  • Post-quake lessons for power utilities

    The damage done to utility facilities during major earthquakes in southern California is described, and the data and lessons they provide are examined. The primary step has been to build a database that can be used to predict what to expect from an earthquake, i.e., what degree of shaking might be expected at a specific location and how much an earthquake of a specified magnitude will damage facilities in any particular location. The data have been used to design power generation equipment and distribution equipment to withstand earthquakes with minimal damage. Each earthquake provides a test of existing equipment and is used to develop new design criteria.<<ETX>>

  • Passive and active switching vibration control with pendulum type damper

    Active and passive mass damper have different performance for vibration structure. Active mass damper has good performance for vibration control systems against winds and small earthquakes. On the contrary, passive mass damper is effective against big earthquakes. In this paper, some switching vibration control methods are proposed, i.e. switching between passive and active. The vibration control device is pendulum type mass damper with an active mass damper on the end of the pendulum, which works as a passive mass damper without control input and as an active mass damper with control input. Numerical simulations and experimental results show that the proposed switching vibration control has better performance than full time passive and active mass damper.

  • Grid small and large: distributed systems and global communities

    Summary form only given. Grid technologies seek to enable collaborative problem solving and resource sharing within distributed, multi-organizational virtual organizations. Two characteristics of Grid environments make the engineering of systems and applications particularly challenging. First, we face the familiar difficulties that arise when developing software that must provide reliability, performance, and security in environments that may be heterogeneous, unpredictable, unreliable, and hostile; second, we must allow this software to be deployed, operated, and evolved in an environment characterized by multiple participants with different and perhaps conflicting views on system function and design. The author presents the work that is being done to address these challenges.

  • Characteristics of ground motion records in Zigong mountain array during “5.12” Wenchuan Earthquake

    Based on the strong ground motion data recorded at Zigong array during Wenchuan Earthquake on May 12, 2008, the characteristics of peak ground acceleration (PGA) and response spectrum are analyzed. The results indicate that the mountain topography greatly influences the seismic wave propagations. The horizontal PGA increases more greatly than the vertical PGA with increasing elevation of the mountain; however this increase is not monotonous and related to the features of local mountain topography. The influences of topography on acceleration response spectra mainly depend on the source frequency content. The high frequency content beyond 1 Hz of seismic waves has been amplified more greatly. And the results also indicate that the displace response spectra are almost uninfluenced by the mountain topography.

  • Underwater acoustic image segmentation using neural deformable template

    This paper describes a neural network architecture that has been developed to perform underwater acoustic image segmentation based on deformable template techniques. The template shift is guided by external energy from the image under consideration, which attracts them towards the target characteristics and by internal energy, which tries to maintain the smoothness of the contour curve. The resulting deformable templates are used to train and test the neural network, which is able to distinguish interest objects from other kinds of objects. We have used the neural deformable template to segment underwater acoustic images. The results show that this algorithm is efficient, precise and very immune to image deformation and noise when compared to results obtained from several other deformable template-based methods.

  • Numerical Simulation and Dimensional Analysis for Impact Resistant of the Building Structures

    Theoretical analysis and numerical calculation of the building structures with impact resistant character depend on the parameters and results of the experiment. The dimensions of the plototype is shrunken to the experimental model. The minification of the dimension and strength is not accordant between the plototype and the experimental model. Usually,the relative strength of the experimental model is greater than the plototype. Thus, the research on convergent-divergent ratio is needed when designing the experimental model with impact resistant character. The relationship between convergent-divergent of physical dimension and deformation, stress, pressure, wave speed, time, mass point speed is researched based on impact dimensional analysis. The lamination crack of concrete is also obtained.

  • Seismic response of sliding isolated bridges with MR dampers

    Response of sliding isolated bridges with smart dampers in near fault earthquake ground motions is evaluated in this study. The smart damper used is a magnetorheological (MR) damper. A 1:20 scale single span sliding isolated bridge model with four sliding bearings and a MR damper is studied. New sliding mode controller is developed and implemented in real time. Several near fault ground motions recorded in the Northridge earthquake are used in the testing. Shake table test results of the scaled sliding isolated bridge model with MR damper are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the dampers. It is shown that the smart MR dampers can reduce displacements and forces in the piers further than the passive dampers. While these displacement reductions can be achieved by increasing the passive damping further, it can only be done at the expense of greater forces in the piers.
