In product development, CAD and CAE systems taking part in the design process were individually developed. Furthermore, in product development, different divisions and businesses often have heterogeneous CAD/CAE systems and methods for expressing product data, and addressing this heterogeneity creates additional costs and causes longer development periods. To ensure successful collaboration in the design process, it is therefore imperative that different CAD, CAE, and other related systems be managed in an organic and integrated manner from the initial stages of product development. Therefore, this study suggests an integrated CAD/CAE system including optimization in a more effective and integrated manner but also to support interfacing and the collective use of design and analysis tools. To validate the proposed method, a stiffened plate example is taken as an example. It is found that the proposed method could overcome the bottleneck of CAD and CAE such as transferability of data, though CATIA and ANSYS are used at the moment. Besides, carrying out an optimization process during the CAE process is another essential parts for the structural optimization process.
Fuzzy Hybrid Control of a Smart TMD for Reduction of Wind Responses in a Tall Building

Journal of the Computational Structural Engineering Institute of Korea, volume 22, issue 2, 2009, Pages 135~144
Fuzzy hybrid control technique with a smart tuned mass damper(STMD) was proposed in this study for the suppression of wind-induced motion of a tall building. To develop the effective control algorithm for a STMD, skyhook and groundhook control algorithms were employed. Usually, skyhook controller can effectively reduce STMD motion and groundhook controller shows good control performance for the reduction of building responses. In this study, fuzzy hybrid controller, which can determine an optimal weighting factor for combining two controllers in real time, was developed to improve the control performance of conventional hybrid controller using weighted sum approach. A 76-story office building was used as an example structure to investigate the performance of the proposed controller. A magnetorheological(MR) damper was used to develop a STMD and the control performance of STMD was evaluated comparing with the passive and active TMD. The numerical studies show that the control effectiveness of a STMD is significantly superior to that of the conventional TMD. It is also shown that fuzzy hybrid controller can effectively adjust skyhook and groundhook control algorithms and reduce both responses of STMD and building.

In this paper, dynamic instability of plane membrane structures under wind action has been studied. The key to solving the governing equations of membrane structures under wind action is how to obtain the air pressure on membrane. Based on Bernoulli's theorem, fluid pressure has a certain relationship with velocity potential. Velocity potential could be solved according to thin aerofoil theory, where air around the membrane is regarded as a sheet of vortices. In this paper, we take advantage of the most commonly used three-node triangular membrane element and weighted residual-Galerkin method to obtain the determining equation for stability evaluation. Square and rectangular membrane structures are studied. The influence of initial prestressing force and wind direction towards critical wind velocity are also analyzed in this paper.
Computational Efficiency of Thermo-Elasto-Viscoplastic Damage and Contact Analyses by Domain/Boundary Decomposition
Kim, Sung-Jun ; Shin, Eui-Sup ;
Journal of the Computational Structural Engineering Institute of Korea, volume 22, issue 2, 2009, Pages 153~161
A domain/boundary decomposition method is applied for efficient analyses of thermo-elasto-viscoplastic damage and contact problems under the assumption of infinitesimal deformation. For the decomposition of a whole domain and contact boundaries, all the equality constraints on the interface and contact interfaces are restated with simple penalty functional. Therefore, the non-linearity of the problem is localized within finite element matrices in a few subdomains and on contact interfaces. By setting up suitable solution algorithms, the computational efficiency can be improved considerably. The general tendency of the computational efficiency is illustrated with some numerical experiments.

BIM technologies based on three-dimensional parametric solid modeling can provide building industries with a wide range of information, and then enable not only to automate architectural drawings, detect clashes between building components, and estimate building materials, but also to manage effectively architectural and engineering information about building spaces, structures, energy, just-in-time delivery, facility management, and code checking. This paper presents an implementation to extract geometric data from IFC files, and validates the system with simple and complex buildings.

Reduction scheme is remarkably useful in the case requiring the repeated calculation procedure. Recently, the efficiency of the reduction scheme has been improved by combining scheme of sub-domain method. But, when the global domain is partitioned into a few sub-domains, sub-domains without constraints can be produced. it is needed to extract the ritz vector from each sub-domain to construct the reduced system of each sub-domain. it is easy to extract the ritz vector from sub-domain with constraint. on the other hand, pseudo inverse method should be employed to extract the ritz vector from sub-domain without constraint. generally, the pseudo inverse takes a large number of computing time to obtain a reduced system of a sub-domain without boundary condition. This trouble can be overcome by the reduced pseudo inverse scheme which proposed in this study. This scheme is based on the static condensation that is not related with selection of the primary degrees of freedom. Numerical examples demonstrate that present method saves computational cost effectively. In addition, it is shown that the reduced system based on the proposed scheme predicts the accurate eigenvalues of global system.
Strengthening of an Existing Bridge for Achievement of Seismic Performance

Journal of the Computational Structural Engineering Institute of Korea, volume 22, issue 2, 2009, Pages 181~187
After introduction of the earthquake resistant design code, it is required to achieve seismic performance of existing bridges as well as earthquake resistant design of new bridges. The achievement of seismic performance for existing bridges should satisfy the no collapse requirement based on the basic concept of earthquake resistant design, therefore, various methods with different strengthening scale should be suggested according to bridge types and importance categories. At present for typical bridges, most studied and applied strengthening methods are bearing change, pier strengthening and shear key installation for improvement of seismic performance. In this study a typical existing bridge, for which earthquake resistant design is not considered, is selected as an analysis bridge. Design changes are carried out to satisfy the no collapse requirement by way of the ductile failure mechanism and seismic performances are checked. It is shown that the seismic performance of existing bridges can be achieved by way of redesign of bridge system, e.g. determination of pier design section for substructure and change of bearing function for connections between super/sub-structure.
Subparametric Element Based on Partial-linear Layerwise Theory for the Analysis of Orthotropic Laminate Composites

This paper presents the subparametric finite element model formulated by partial-linear layerwise theory for the analysis of laminate composites. The proposed model is based on refined approximations of two dimensional plane for orthotropic thick laminate plate as well as thin case. Three dimensional problem can be reduced to two dimensional case by assuming piecewise linear variation of in-plane displacement and a constant value of out-of-plane displacement across the thickness. The integrals of Legendre polynomials are chosen to define displacement fields and Gauss-Lobatto numerical integration is implemented in order to directly obtain maximum values occurred at the nodal points of each layer without other extrapolation techniques. The validity and characteristics of the proposed model have been tested by using orthotropic multilayered plate problem as compared to the values available in the published references. In this study, the convergence test has been carried out to determine the optimal layer model in terms of central deflection and stresses. Also, the distribution of displacements and stresses across the thickness has been investigated as the number of layer is increased.
