    Introduction of Concentric Braced Frame Equipped with BRB & YE (yielding element) and Quantification of Seismic Perfomance Factors
    Based on FEMA-P695

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Souri, Omid (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    This investigation is intended to assess the behavior of SCBFs in the presence of typical brace members, which buckles in compression, and BRBs joining by yielding elements. While braces play a role in providing stiffness for structure, central yielding elements will act as energy-absorbing fuses. In this frame type, energy dissipation will mainly be undertaken by BRBs and yielding elements. The mentioned yielding elements do this by initiating plastic hinges in each corner of the central frame. As it is clear, designing a structure that includes the stated lateral-load-resisting system necessitates seismic performance parameters to be evaluated. Hence, by pursuing the FEMA P695 methodology,... 

    Developing of MIDA Method in Irregular Structures in Plan with Concentrated Plasticity Model

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Yari, Mohammad Hossein (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    In this research, modal incremental dynamic analysis (MIDA) has been investigated on three-dimensional structures with irregular plans. The MIDA method is an incremental static analysis that considers higher modes of the structure. In fact, it is a combination of modal pushover (MPO) and incremental dynamic analysis (IDA) methods that incorporate the advantages of both and is much faster than the IDA method. Compared to constant analyses, incremental analysis is more extensive in terms of results and response to earthquakes. Due to the uncertainties in the nature of future earthquakes, engineers use the IDA method to achieve a broader view of the structure's response under potential...

    , 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...

    Reinforced concrete shells are widely used to cover the small to large area with more aesthetics at minimum cost. Shell structures carries 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 forced vibration of funicular shells on a rectangular ground plan under impulse loads using shallow shells theory. Two boundary conditions, simply supported and clamped, are considered. Displacement components are product of position and time functions. The analysis is based on the expansion of displacement... 

    On the Characteristics of The Behavior of Multi-story Steel Frames Accompanied by Steel Shear Walls with Openings

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rostami, Parisa (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    As steel shear walls are usually applied in the central cores of buildings (around the elevators and stairs), the use of opening as door is inevitable in steel shear wall spans. On the other hand, because of weakening the performance of steel shear walls due to the presence of these openings, it is necessary to apply stiffeners around it. The use of stiffeners around all sides of opening continued to beams and columns, is very expensive. Therefore, the necessity of studying on the effect of different arrangements of stiffeners on the behavior of steel shear walls is felt. In this research, a number of steel shear walls with different characteristics in terms of plate aspect ratio, location...

    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... 

    Seismic Evaluation and Quantification of Seismic Performance Factors of Disposable Knee Bracing Frames

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nobahar, Elnaz (Author) ; Mofid, Massoud (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, Braced Frames systems are prevalent as a structural resisting lateral loads. One of the most crucial prominent of them is Disposable Knee Bracing (DKB). In such a system, braces provide stiffness, while the link elements play an important role as an energy-absorbing fuse to dissipate energy by plastic deformation. In this research, bracing frames consist of shear and/or flexural link elements. The experimental results reveal that hysteresis behavior of link elements remains constant till specific rotation. After that, sharply decrease due to crack failure of these elements occurs. This specific rotation has been reported between 0.06 to 0.08 Rad. Seismic performance factors such as...

    , 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

    Base plate is one of the crucial elements in steel structures which transfer force from column to foundation and also prevent stress concentration in jointing area between them. For investigating the behavior of base plate under different caseloads such as axial, transverse and earthquake loads, it is necessary to consider all the involved elements including column, base plate, foundation, anchor rods and also interaction between these elements. In this study the connection between column and base plate, base plate and foundation are analyzed thoroughly. The behavior of base plate with a box type column with and without stiffener under the static loads is analyzed using finite element... 

    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...
