Recent Findings from Sharif University of Technology Has Provided New Information about Structural Engineering

February 5, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators discuss new findings in Structural Engineering. According to news reporting originating from Tehran, Iran, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "At present, corrugated plates have numerous applications such as web of plate girders and aerospace applications. Higher out-of-plane stiffness and initial elastic strength of the corrugated plates compared with flat plates are reasons for consideration."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Sharif University of Technology, "This study investigates the behavior of trapezoidally corrugated steel plate shear walls (TCSPSWs) under monotonic and cyclic loadings. Finite element analyses that include both material and geometric nonlinearities are employed for the examination. The results from finite element analysis are verified through tested specimen findings. Moreover, the behavior of the steel shear walls with the flat infill panels and the corrugated plate infill panels is compared. The results show that explicit dynamic analysis is the most suitable analysis for the TCSPSWs under quasi-static loading."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Furthermore, although strength of the TCSPSWs obtained from the finite element analysis and the test are fully coincident in elastic region, nonetheless, they are fairly coincident in elastic-plastic and plastic region."
