Therefore, the scaled boundary finite element method (Wolf 2003; Wolf 1996) in order to describe local nonlinear effects and strong gradients. For the transient load, the model has to be transformed into the time-domain; this is shown here by using two diffrent algorithms. Ruge et al. (Ruge 2001) proposed transformation of frequency-dependent dynamic stiffness relationships to the time-domain using the ’mixed variables technique’. The derivation of the acceleration unit-impulse (Wolf 1996) response is based on the interaction force-acceleration relationship, which is formulated in the time-domain with the inverse Fourier transformation.

Nhleko, A. S. Williams & J. Whittle Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, United Kingdom ABSTRACT Several investigators have considered bracing systems for temporary grandstands and other structures in general and recommended guidelines for effective bracing systems based on fundamental structural principles and performance of laboratory models (Ji et al.

Bijlaard Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands ABSTRACT these design rules can be used for the design and verification of modern joints in which the basic components can be recognized. This is because the design rules for joints are related to these basic components in which almost all joints can be sub-divided and because the requirements for stiffness, strength and rotation capacity of joints are given in so-called performance based requirements and are irrespective of the type of the joint.
