Loads: The Basis of Repeated Loading and Impact Loading Criteria
(James Cook University of North Queensland, 1978)
Systematic and Integrated Approach toTropical Cyclone Track Forecasting in the North Atlantic
(Calhoun: Institutional Archive of the Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-12)
A Systematic Approach for tropical cyclone track forecasting was introduced in 1994 by Carr and Elsberry to help forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Guam. The author was trained in the Systematic Approach ...
An Artificial Neural Network for Wind-Induced Damage Potential to Nonengineered Buildings
Extreme winds such as hurricanes and tornadoes can be extremely destructive and result in catastrophic property losses and loss of human lives. The need to predict damage and reduce loss of life and property is becoming ...
Finite Element Modeling of Tornado Missile Impact on Reinforced Concrete Wall Panels
This study describes a finite element model for the impact of large tornado missiles on reinforced concrete wall panels. The analysis predicts the dynamic response of wall panels when impacted by a missile with a large ...
Study of Load Effects on a Dome Due to Fluctuating Wind Loads
The present study attempts to compare three contemporary techniques available to estimate peak load effects on structures from limited pressure histories, obtained from Wind Tunnel tests. A wind tunnel test was performed ...
Robust Fractal Characterization of One-Dimensional and Two-Dimensional Signals
Fractals have been shown to be useful in the analysis of time series data and in classification of natural shapes and textures. A Maximum Likelihood Estimator is used to measure the parameter H which is directly related ...
