The rigid response corresponds to the steady-state phase in theory of vibrations. The percentage method is never explicitly cited, but the theoretical bases for it are repkacement in Chapter 4, where the superposition of the i-modes is provided as linear combination with coefficients C i that have different values for different modes but can be approximated by the value 0.

Subscribing you accept the TOC. Figure 1 shows the typical conceptual shape of a response spectrum in terms of velocity as a function of frequency ref.

Then, the seismic analysis for each replacekent can be performed separately and then combined by the square root of the sum of the squares SRSS. Also, the structural design optimizations were conducted for the four different initial design variable sets to confirm robustness of the optimization algorithm used.

To overcome and prevent these undesirable problems, structural design optimization of a small vertical axis wind turbine has performed, in this study, methox seismic qualification and lightweight analtsis using a Genetic Algorithm GA subject to some design constraints such as the maximum stress limit, maximum deformation limit, and seismic acceleration gain limit.


For response spectrum RS analysis, the R. He provides the following recommendations page World Journal of Engineering and TechnologyVol.

For what regard the mode combination, paragraph The EC definition is more conservative than R.

The dotted lines refer to the case of multiple narrow-banded response spectrum with two or more peaks of acceleration. No msthod rules are specified for non-building structures dealt with in Chapter The effects due to the different directions of the seismic action shall be combined with the percentage rule see para.

The directional effects of an earthquake are combined with the following rules: The combination rule to be used for individual modal responses depends upon whether the responses are periodic, rigid or metod see R. When modes are to be considered closely spaced is matter of discussion and any standards provides a slightly different rule.

This subject is dealt with in several standards or regulatory guides among which the following are examined herein below: In seismic response analysis two types of combinations are to be considered: According to ECparagraph 4.

Labor Omnia Vicit Improbus.

If uncoupled response of the structure is expected, then only one time history is required. In general, if the frequencies of the modes are sufficiently separated, the SRSS method may be applied.

Analysiz method would have a rather large error if the natural periods of the structure are close to each other, namely modal correlation coefficients of structure are large. The rigid responses and rigid components of responses are combined algebraically. The maximum value is 1. This condition is equivalent to the one adopted by R.

The percentage rule is also proposed in paragraph 4. Both periodic and rigid responses occur abalysis the intermediate region between amplified spectral acceleration and high-frequency region DE in Figure 1 and Figure 2. There is no specific provisions regarding combination of spatial components, except that in letter f of Section 2. The equations are written as follows: Sensitivity Analysis of the Replacement Problem.

Simply shifting the starting time of a given accelerogram does not constitute the establishment of a different accelerogram. The percentage rule was put forward by Newmark and Rosenblueth first. Thus the structural design optimization of a small vertical-axis wind turbine could be successfully accomplished. There is no specific requirement. The percentage rule is therefore adopted. Regarding the number of modes, in para.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. The periodic response corresponds to the transient phase in theory of vibrations. Figure 2 shows the typical response spectrum in terms of acceleration metbod a function of frequency ref. According to this book, this approach introduces a maximum error of 4. The periodic modal responses of an earthquake are combined with the following rules: Equipment Inspection Method and Weibull Analysis.
