Smart Connection Systems: Design and Seismic Analysis.
Smart Connection Systems: Design and Seismic Analysis
Jong Wan Hu
Hu presents a graduate or undergraduate textbook that can be used in architectural engineering, civil engineering, building construction, and structural engineering programs. He develops finite element models to predict the response of smart structures under seismic loading. He covers the design and analysis for smart partially restrained concrete-filled tube connections, both end plate and T-stub types; for bolted connections, including component models for recentering bolted connections; and for gusset plate, recentering slit damper and smart damping smart connections.
