Dynamic Test of a SDOF PXCM System
15 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s): Prateek Pratap Shah, William Pollalis
Phase Transforming Cellular Materials (PXCMs) are a suitable alternative to traditional materials because they can 1) exhibit non-linear behavior and hence limit forces in buildings, and 2) deform without permanent deformations. Dynamic tests of a SDOF PXCM system were conducted. A total of 26...

Solar PV Diagnosis
30 Aug 2018 | Databases | Contributor(s): Xingshu sun, Muhammed Tahir Patel, Reza Asadpour, Muhammad A. Alam
SThe uncertainties associated with technology‐specific and geography‐specific degradation rates make it difficult to calculate the levelized cost of energy, and thus the economic viability of solar energy. In this regard, millions of fielded photovoltaic modules may serve as a global testbed,...
Tests of Continuous Beams with Large Reinforcement Ratios
31 Jul 2018 | Databases | Contributor(s): Aishwarya Y. Puranam, Santiago Pujol
Tests of continuous beams were conducted to investigate maximum longitudinal reinforcement limits (currently expressed in terms of net tensile strain) and moment redistribution at that limit. The following hypothesis was tested:Nominally identical continuous beams, one with nearly the...
