Different Elastic Constants and Their Relationships

When an elastic body is subjected to stress, a proportionate amount of strain is produced. The ratio of the applied stresses to the strains generated will always be constant and is known as elastic constant. Elastic constant represents ...

What are the Effects of Earthquake on Structures?

Earthquake is the most dangerous natural phenomenon that generates sizable destruction in structures. It is reported that two sources of mistakes which would seriously endanger structures are ignoring the ways an earthquake affects buildings and shoddy construction practices. ...

Stress-strain Curve for Steel Bars

The stress-strain curve describes the behavior of steel bars under loads. It is created by testing steel specimens. A steel specimen is gradually pulled through a testing machine until it breaks, and stress and corresponding strains are recorded. ...

Difference Between Braced Frame and Moment Resisting frame

Both, braced frame and moment resisting frame are used in the construction of structures which are subjected to lateral loads such as wind and seismic forces. This is particularly obvious for very tall structures where the lateral forces ...

Analysis Methods for Buildings Frames

Building frames can be analyzed by various methods such as force method, displacement method, and approximate method. The method of analysis to adopt depends upon the types of frame, its configuration (portal bay or multi-bay) in multi-storied frame ...
