A size-dependent micromechanical framework is proposed to predict the deformation responses of particle-reinforced metal matrix composites by incorporating the essential features of the dislocation plasticity. Within the framework of probabilistic micromechanical formulation, the damage caused by...
In the present study, flexural strength, thermal properties, and microstructure of self-compacting concrete with different amount of TiO 2 nanoparticles have been investigated. TiO 2 nanoparticles with the average particle size of 15 nm were partially added to self-compacting concrete and various...
Modal characteristics of engineering structures can be determined via dynamic observation in scope of system identification and they can be used for a variety of purposes, including model updates, damage assessment, active control, and original design re-evaluation. This paper presents the use of...
