      Dynamic responses in nanocomposite hydrogels 

      Loizou, Elena; Butler, P.; Porcar, L.; Schmidt, G. (2006)
      The shear response of a series of polymer-clay gels has been investigated by means of rheology and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). The gels have the same composition by mass but different polymer molecular weights ...

      Dynamic responses in polymer-clay gels 

      Loizou, Elena; Porcar, L.; Butler, P.; Malwitz, M.; Schmidt, G. (2005)
      The shear orientation of three polymer-clay gels has been investigated by means of small angle neutron scattering (SANS). The gels have the same polymer and clay concentrations but different polymer molecular weight. The ...

      First-passage study and stationary response analysis of a BWB hysteresis model using quasi-conservative stochastic averaging method 

      Noori, M.; Dimentberg, M.; Hou, Z.; Christodoulidou, R.; Alexandrou, Andreas N. (1995)
      The quasi-conservative stochastic averaging (QCSA) method is applied to a Bouc-Wen-Baber hysteretic system (BWB) under Gaussian white noise excitations. The stationary probability density of the system's response amplitude ...

      On poundings of a seismically isolated building with adjacent structures during strong earthquakes 

      Polycarpou, Panayiotis C.; Komodromos, Petros I. (2010)
      This paper presents selected indicative results from an extensive parametric investigation that has been performed in order to assess the effects of potential earthquake-induced poundings on the overall dynamic response ...
