      A mechanistic approach in defining inelastic rotation capacity of RC columns 

      Megalooikonomou, K. G.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J.; Tastani, S. P. (National Technical University of Athens, 2017)
      When a reinforced concrete (RC) column is subjected to lateral sway as a result of earthquake action, the large strain demand in the end sections is supported by development of strains in the anchorage. This causes the ...

      Minimum relative entropy criterion for damage detection and location 

      Mares, C.; Kyprianou, Andreas (Affiliation: Brunel University, School of Engineering and Design, United KingdomAffiliation: University of Cyprus, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Mares, C.Brunel University, School of Engineering and DesignUnited Kingdomemail: Cristinel.Mares@brunel.ac.uk, 2009)
      Relative entropy has been employed, as an alternative to other regularization methods, in solving ill-conditioned linear inverse problems. Damage detection when treated as structural modification imparted by the damage ...

      Numerical verification of a dual system's seismic response 

      Phocas, Marios C.; Sophocleous, Tonia (2012)
      Structural control through integration of passive damping devices within the building structure has been increasingly implemented internationally in the last years and has proven to be a most promising strategy for earthquake ...

      Probing the environment of CuB in heme-copper oxidases 

      Daskalakis, Vangelis; Pinakoulaki, Eftychia; Stavrakis, Stavros; Varotsis, Constantinos (2007)
      Time-resolved step-scan FTIR (TRS2-FTIR) and density functional theory have been applied to probe the structural dynamics of CuB in heme-copper oxidases at room temperature. The TRS2-FTIR data of cbb3 from Pseudomonas ...

      Seismic reliability assessment of urban water networks 

      Fragiadakis, M.; Christodoulou, Symeon E. (2014)
      We present a framework for the seismic risk assessment of water supply networks, operating in either normal or abnormal conditions. We propose a methodology for assessing the reliability of water pipe networks combining ...

      Time-Resolved Resonance Raman and Time-Resolved Step-Scan FTIR Studies of Nitric Oxide Reductase from Paracoccus denitrificans: Comparison of the Heme b3-FeB Site to That of the Heme-CuB in Oxidases 

      Pinakoulaki, Eftychia; Varotsis, Constantinos (2003)
      Time-resolved resonance Raman (TR3) and time-resolved step-scan (TRS2) FTIR spectroscopies have been used to probe the structural dynamics at the heme b3 proximal and distal sites after carbon monoxide photolysis from fully ...
