System Identification of Building Structure using Subspace Identification Method
Bae, Gi-Hwan ;
Journal of the Korean Association for Spatial Structures, volume 3, issue 4, 2003, Pages 53~58
In order to control seismic responses of building structures effectively and stably, it is very important to estimate the dynamic characteristics of target structure exactly based on input-output signal data. In this paper, it is shown that Subspace Identification Method is able to be applied effectively to system identification of building structures. To verify the efficiency of Subspace Identification Method, the vibration experiments were conducted on a specimen structure which is a 5-storied building structure model consisted of H-shaped steel beam, and the simulated seismic responses of the identified structure model were compared with the observed ones under the same excitation. It was observed that the experimental results coincided with the analyzed ones proposed in this paper.
Optimization of Gable Frame Using the Modified Genetic Algorithm

Journal of the Korean Association for Spatial Structures, volume 3, issue 4, 2003, Pages 59~67
Genetic algorithm is one of the best ways to solve a discrete variable optimization problem. Genetic algorithm tends to thrive in an environment in which the search space is uneven and has many hills and valleys. In this study, genetic algorithm is used for solving the design problem of gable structure. The design problem of frame structure has some special features(complicate design space, many nonlinear constrants, integer design variables, termination conditions, special information for frame members, etc.), and these features must be considered in the formulation of optimization problem and the application of genetic algorithm. So, 'FRAME operator', a new genetic operator for solving the frame optimization problem effectively, is developed and applied to the design problem of gable structure. This example shows that the new opreator has the possibility to be an effective frame design operator and genetic algorithm is suitable for the frame optimization problem.

In case of rectangular latticed pattern which shearing rigidity is very small, it has a concern to drop Buckling-strength considerably by external force. So, by means of system to increase buckling-strength, there is a method of construction that lattice of dome is reinforced by braced member. In a case like this, shearing rigidity of braced member increase buckling-strength of the whole of structure and can be designed economically from the viewpoint of practice. Therefore, this paper is aimed at investigating how much does rigidity of braced member united with latticed member bearing principal stress of dome increase buckling-strength of the whole of structure. the subject of study is rectangular latticed domes that are a set of 2-way lattice dome which grid is simple and number of member gathering at junction is small. Analysis method is based on FEM dealing with the geometrically nonlinear deflection problems.
A Study on the Stabilization Process of Tensegrity System using the Force Density Method

Journal of the Korean Association for Spatial Structures, volume 3, issue 4, 2003, Pages 77~84
Tensegrity systems are stable structures which are reticulated spatial structures composed of compressive straight members, struts and cables. But there are some difficulties concerning surface stability, surface formation and construction method. One of the ways to solve this problem reasonably is combination of tesile members and rigid members. This structure is a type of flexible strutural system which is unstable initially because the cable material has little initial rigidity. Therefore tensegrity structure need to be introduced to the Initial stress for the self-equilibrated system having stable state. The rigidification of tensegrity systems is related to selfstress states which can be achieved only when geometrical and mechanical requirements are simultaneously satisfied. In this paper, for the stabilization of tesnsegrity structure it is proposed the modified self-equilibrated equation and the range of the various geometrical parameter about unit system. And we generate the model of double layed single curvature arch using the new squew quadruplex unit system.

Jang, Myung-Ho ; Kim, Jae-Yeol ; Sur, Sam-Yeol ;
Journal of the Korean Association for Spatial Structures, volume 3, issue 4, 2003, Pages 85~92
In this work, a finite element model is presented for geometrically non-linear analysis of shell structures. Finite element by using a three-node flat triangular shell element is formulated. The non-linear incremental equilibrium equations are formulated by using an updated Lagrangian formulation and the solutions are obtained with the incremental/iterative Newton-Raphson method and arc length method. Some of results are presented for shell structures. The obtained results are in good agreement with the results available in existing literature.
