Abstract

The main objective of this study is to present new method on the basis of genetic algorithms for attenuation relationship determination of horizontal peak ground acceleration and spectral acceleration. The proposed method employs the optimization capabilities of genetic algorithm to determine the coefficients of attenuation relationships of peak ground and spectral accelerations. This method has been applied to 361 Iranian earthquake records with magnitudes between 4.5 and 7.4 obtained from two seismic zones, namely Zagros and Alborz-Central Iran. The obtained results indicated that the proposed method can be characterized as a powerful tool for prediction horizontal peak ground and spectral accelerations.

Abstract

In this paper, a two-stage method for damage detection and estimation in tall shear frames is presented. This method is based on the first mode shape of a shear frame. We demonstrate that the first mode shape slope is very sensitive to the story stiffness. Thus, at the first stage, by using the grey system theory on the first mode shape slope, damage locations are identified in shear frames. Damage severity is determined at the second stage by defining the damage detection problem as an optimization problem by using grey relation coefficients. The optimization problem is solved by a socio-politically motivated global search strategy which is the imperialist competitive algorithm. The efficiency and robustness of the proposed method for the identification and estimation of damages in tall shear frames were studied by using two numerical examples. In addition, the capability of the presented method in real conditions was demonstrated by contaminating of modal data with different levels of random noises. All the obtained results from the numerical studies are shown the good performance of the presented method in the damage localization and quantification of tall buildings.

Abstract

Estimating mechanical properties of concrete before designing reinforced concrete structures is among the design requirements. Steel fibers have a considerable effect on the mechanical properties of reinforced concrete, particularly its tensile strength. So far, numerous studies have been done to estimate the relationship between tensile strength of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) and other SFRC characteristics using regression analyses. But, in order to determine appropriate relations according to these methods, we need to estimate the basic structure of relations. Genetic programming (GP) method has solved this problem. In this study, the results of 367 laboratory specimens collected from the literature are used to present some relations to predict the tensile strength of SFRC using GP. The proposed relations are more accurate than the relations which have been presented thus far.

Abstract

The constitutive relationships presented for concrete modeling are often associated with unknown material constants. These constants are in fact the connectors of mathematical models to experimental results. Experimental determination of these constants is always associated with some difficulties. Their values are usually determined through trial and error procedure, with regard to experimental results. In this study, in order to determine the material constants of an elastic-damage-plastic model proposed for concrete, the results of 44 uniaxial compression and tension experiments collected from literature were used. These constants were determined by investigating the consistency of experimental and modeling results using a genetic algorithm optimization tool for all the samples; then, the precision of resulted constants were investigated by simulating cyclic and biaxial loading experiments. The simulation results were compared to those of the corresponding experimental data. The results observed in comparisons indicated the accuracy of obtained material constants in concrete modeling.

Abstract

Several researchers have proved that the constitutive models of concrete based on combination of continuum damage and plasticity theories are able to reproduce the major aspects of concrete behavior. A problem of such damage-plasticity models is associated with the material constants which are needed to be determined before using the model. These constants are in fact the connectors of constitutive models to the experimental results. Experimental determination of these constants is always associated with some problems, which restricts the applicability of such models despite their accuracy and capabilities. In the present paper, the values of material constants for a damage-plasticity model determined in part I of this work were used as a database. Genetic programming was employed to discover equations which directly relate the material constants to the concrete primary variables whose values could be simply inferred from the results of uniaxial tension and compressive tests. The simulations of uniaxial tension and compressive tests performed by using the constants extracted from the proposed equations, exhibited a reasonable level of precision.  The validity of suggested equations were also assessed via simulating experiments which were not involved in the procedure of equation discovery. The comparisons revealed the satisfactory accuracy of proposed equations.

Abstract

In this paper, topology optimization (TO) is applied to determine the form, size and location of holes for the special form of perforated steel plate shear wall (PSPSW). The proposed model is based on the recently presented particular form of PSPSW that is called the ring-shaped steel plate shear wall. The strain energy is selected as the objective function in the optimization. Simple Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP) method and the solution algorithms, including sensitivity and condition-based methods are utilized in the TO. Four initial plate forms are presented in the TO with regards to the length of the connection between the plate and column. Based on the solution methods and initial forms of the plate, eight scenarios are proposed and seven different perforated plates obtained using TO. The nonlinear responses of the optimized perforated plates are compared together, and with the ring-shaped model as a benchmark. The nonlinear analysis is conducted under cyclic and monotonic loadings. Key issues include cyclic and monotonic behavior, pinching behavior, stiffness, load-carrying capacity, energy dissipation, fracture tendency and out-of-plane deformation are investigated and discussed. The results demonstrate the optimized models have better behavior than the ring-shaped model without changing the volume of the plate.
