    Seismic Performance Evaluation of Vertcial Irregular Structures through Nonlinear Time History Analysis

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sadeghipour, Arash (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Incremental Dynamic Analysis (IDA) is a parametric analysis method that has recently emerged in several different forms to estimate more thoroughly structural performance under seismic loads. Using IDA , the objective is to study the effect of the irregular distribution of stiffness and strength along the height of a 9 story 3D steel structure model. The reference and each modified structure are hence forced to show the complete spectrum of behavior from elasticity to final global instability, allowing the estimation of capacities for the full range of limit-states and enabling a straightforward comparison without needing to “tune” the structures to the same fundamental period and/or the... 

    On the Parametric Study of Tall Buildings with Different Lateral Force Resisting Systems

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jorjani, Abdullah (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    General tall buildings consist of different types of structural systems, such as moment resisting frames, with and without shear walls, braces and outriggers. These types of structure have been widely analyzed by many researchers. However, only a few publications are available on the comparison of these structural systems with different stories. In this investigation five types of common structural systems including special moment resisting frame(SMRF), pin structure plus brace, pin structure plus shear wall, SMRF plus brace and SMRF plus shear wall are studied and by doing linear dynamic analysis, a criterion for both lateral displacement and steel tonnage of structures was presented.... 

    Parametric Studies of Seismic Behavior of Single Story Concrete Frame Equipped on Yielding Element

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alirezaei, Mehdi (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    In this thesis, in order to evaluate the vulnerability of concrete structures equipped with Yielding Element (YE) against earthquakes, two single story/ span concrete frames with different bay-to-height ratios (B/H<1 and B/H>1) are considered. Since the nature of earthquakes is to release energy due to tectonic movements in the earth and the nature of damages in structures depends on the rate of absorbed energy, investigating the behavior of structures are based on the energy concept which is considered as the most important way to design structures against earthquake load. In order to provide seismic resistance against earthquakes and reduce the damages in main elements, it is required to...

    Using Finite Element Method for Analyzing the Performance of Low Yield Point Steel Plate Shear Wall

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jebelli, Houtan (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Steel plate shear walls are lateral load resisting systems, especially against earthquake excitation. They are constructed with or without stiffeners. Stiffened walls are more ductile than without stiffeners walls. In this research, nine thin steel plate shear walls models were considered in three groups of 5story, 01story and 05 story walls. In each group different yield point steel for the infill plate was used. The results showed that, using low yield point(LYP) steel will increase energy dissipation of models up to %36. LYP also improve shear capacity of models up to %96. The results showed that using LYP will cause lower lateral displacement in models  

    Response Modification Factor of Steel Plate Shear Wall in Steel Structures

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Merati, Saeed (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Steel shear wall systems have been introduced as a lateral load resisting system since 1970s. Based on the designer’s choice, this system can be used with or without stiffeners. Employing stiffeners prevents the elastic buckling of steel plates which can enhance the system to absorb more energy. The design code for using stiffeners has not developed yet in Iran since this kind of systems is not common practice. In this study, the Response Modification Factor (R), as an important factor in the design procedures of structures, is investigated for 1,3,5,7 and 10-story regular and irregular building structures which have un-stiffened steel shear walls with 3, 4.5 and 6 millimeters thickness with...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinkhani, Ali (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    The Steel shear wall is one of resisting lateral load system which has been used since 1970.with respect to design we can apply this system with or without stiffeners .here our investigation is about steel shear wall without stiffeners. Also this system is called SSW. Since using this system is new fashion, there is no specific code for it in Iranian 2800 code .also there is no code for using this system in reinforced concrete frames in any code which makes this investigation much harder. Need to obtain R which is one of the most important seismic parameters, encouraged us to consider R for SSW in 3 to 7 storey structures .we obtained static pushover curves with nonlinear static analysis... 

    Effects of Thickness and Compressive Strength on The Behavior of Corrugated Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Shear Wall in a Steel Frame

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sarmadi, Shayan (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Seismic loads are still a challenge for structures and engineers invent and provide seismic resisting systems to resist better against it. Concrete shear walls are well-known seismic resisting system that has had an acceptable performance in occurred seismic events. This system costs noticeable amount of time and material. Fiber-reinforced concretes can be useful to reduce negative effects and provides more positive effects like tensile strength, ductility, impact resisting and etc. Also changes in wall appearance such as corrugating helps to improve shear wall performance as it improves other kinds of plates and shell shaped members in structures. In this thesis, the focus is on “corrugated...

    Investigation on the Effect of Existence of Gusset Plate in Moment-otation Behavior of Double Angle Connection in Braced Frames

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Tabkhi Wayghan, Amir Reza (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Double web angle connection is one of the most simple connections in fabrication in simple frame structural systems. In common design procedures for this type of structural system, it is assumed that double web angle connection behaves as a simple connection, but in this system when bracing used, gusset plates of bracing are connected to top and bottom of double web angle connection, or just in top or bottom, and these gusset plates restraint beam to rotate at the places where it is connected to column. Restraning rotation of beam against column in beam to column connection, may change the classification of connection from simple connection to semi-rigid or even rigid connection. In this...

    Study and Design of a New Kind of Knee Bracing in Semi-Height Multi-Story Steel Building

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Foulad, Reza (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    In this thesis behavior of intermediate steel moment frames and intermediate steel moment frames equipped with knee element are investigated. The knee element attaches to the beam element by inverted-V type concentric braces. The knee element acts as a fuse to dissipate input energy during an earthquake by the formation of plastic hinges. On the other hand, brace elements remain in the elastic range without buckling and provide suitable lateral stiffness. Main object of this investigation is reducing deteriorations in the main frame in intermediate and sever earthquake by concentrating deteriorations in knee element. Whereas knee element is not a main element of the frame, retrofitting of the... 

    Dynamic Behavior Beam and Plate on Foundation under Moving Mass

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Ghannadiasl, Amin (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    The behavior of a beam under moving mass has been always interested in the dynamic of structures. In this study, the dynamic response of beam and plate with general boundary conditions under moving mass were investigated using the Dynamic Green Function. Since the majority of previous studies did not consider the Coriolis acceleration, therefore, this acceleration was used in the present study. Boundary conditions are modeled by the rotational and translational restraint. By moving close to the spring constants of the rotational and translational restraint to extreme values (zero and/or infinity), the boundary conditions can be attained for the desired combinations of end boundary conditions...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Daneshmand, Niloofar (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Reinforced concrete shells are widely used to cover the small to large area with more aesthetics at minimum cost. Shell structures carry load through their shape rather than material strength. Funicular shells are special type of shells that their shape is obtained so that stresses be compressive under a special load (for shell, this load is its dead weight). This study deals with geometrically nonlinear vibration of funicular shells on a rectangular ground plan under impulse loads using nonlinear shallow shells theory. The boundary conditions are considered as clamped edges. Displacement components are product of position and time functions. The analysis is based on the expansion of...
