In this paper, the method of Galerkin and the Askey-Wiener scheme are used to obtain approximate solutions to the stochastic displacement response of Kirchhoff plates with uncertain parameters. Theoretical and numerical results are presented. The Lax-Milgram lemma is used to express the conditions for existence and uniqueness of the solution. Uncertainties in plate and foundation stiffness are modeled by respecting these conditions, hence using Legendre polynomials indexed in uniform random variables. The space of approximate solutions is built using results of density between the space of continuous functions and Sobolev spaces. Approximate Galerkin solutions are compared with results of Monte Carlo simulation, in terms of first and second order moments and in terms of histograms of the displacement response. Numerical results for two example problems show very fast convergence to the exact solution, at excellent accuracies. The Askey-Wiener Galerkin scheme developed herein is able to reproduce the histogram of the displacement response. The scheme is shown to be a theoretically sound and efficient method for the solution of stochastic problems in engineering. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper, the Askey-Wiener scheme and the Galerkin method are used to obtain approximate solutions to stochastic beam bending on Winkler foundation. The study addresses Euler-Bernoulli beams with uncertainty in the bending stiffness modulus and in the stiffness of the foundation. Uncertainties are represented by parameterized stochastic processes. The random behavior of beam response is modeled using the Askey-Wiener scheme. One contribution of the paper is a sketch of proof of existence and uniqueness of the solution to problems involving fourth order operators applied to random fields. From the approximate Galerkin solution, expected value and variance of beam displacement responses are derived, and compared with corresponding estimates obtained via Monte Carlo simulation. Results show very fast convergence and excellent accuracies in comparison to Monte Carlo simulation. The Askey-Wiener Galerkin scheme presented herein is shown to be a theoretically solid and numerically efficient method for the solution of stochastic problems in engineering.; Sao Paulo State Foundation for Research - FAPESP[2008/10366-4]; National Council for Research and Development - CNPq[305120/2006-9]

The Mindlin`s theory for the bending of plates is formulated by the finite elements method in order to the analysis of plate structures resting on elastic media. The foundation soil is represented by springs with linear elastic behaviour (Winkler`s theory).
A programme has been developped for small computers. It consists of three moduli: preprocessing which includes data preparation with graphic treatment (network generation and renumbering, etc.); displacements and support reactions calculation for each loading system; postprocessing, including options with numerical files creation and graphical treatment of results.
The stiffness of the foundation soil can vary from point to point, the plate can have variable thickness and may be actuated by a large variety of types of loads.

In this paper analytical transient solutions of dynamic response of one-dimensional
systems with sudden change of foundation stiffness are derived. In more details,
cantilever dynamic response, expressed in terms of vertical displacement, is
extended to account for elastic foundation and then two cantilever solutions,
corresponding to beams clamped on left and right hand side, with different value of
Winkler constant are connected together by continuity conditions. The internal
forces, as the unknowns, can be introduced by the same values in both clamped
beam solutions and solved. Assumption about time variation of internal forces at the
section of discontinuity must be adopted and originally analytical solution will have
to include numerical procedure.

#Winkler foundation#Rotatory Inertia#Foundation modulus#Moving Force#Moving Mass#Resonance#Critical speed

The dynamic response to moving masses of rectangular plates with general classical boundary conditions and resting on variable Winkler elastic foundation is investigated in this work. The governing fourth order partial differential equation is solved using a technique based on separation of variables, the modified method of Struble and the integral transformations. Numerical results in plotted curves are then presented. The results show that as the value of the rotatory inertia correction factor Ro increases, the response amplitudes of the plate decrease and that, for fixed value of Ro, the displacements of the plate decrease as the foundation modulus Fo increases for the variants of the classical boundary conditions considered. The results also show that for fixed Ro and Fo, the transverse deflections of the rectangular plates under the actions of moving masses are higher than those when only the force effects of the moving load are considered. For the rectangular plate, for the same natural frequency, the critical speed for moving mass problem is smaller than that of the moving force problem for all variants of classical boundary conditions, that is, resonance is reached earlier in moving mass problem than in moving force problem. When Fo and Ro increase...

#Elastic foundation#Rectangular plate with four edges free#natural frequencies Vibration mode shapes#Finite cosine integral transform

The analytical solutions for the natural frequencies and mode shapes of the rectangular plate on foundation with four edges free is presented by using the finite cosine integral transform method. In the analysis procedure, the classical Kirchhoff rectangular plate is considered and the foundation is modelled as the Winkler elastic foundation. Because only are the basic dynamic elasticity equations of the thin plate on elastic foundation adopted, it is not need prior to select the deformation function arbitrarily. Therefore, the solution developed by present paper is reasonable and theoretical. In order to illuminate the correction of formulations, the numerical results are also presented to comparing with that of the other references.

Two outlines for mixed model based approaches to quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping in existing maize hybrid selection programs are presented: a restricted maximum likelihood (REML) and a Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) approach. The methods use the in-silico-mapping procedure developed by Parisseaux and Bernardo (2004) as a starting point. The original single-point approach is extended to a multi-point approach that facilitates interval mapping procedures. For computational and conceptual reasons, we partition the full set of relationships from founders to parents of hybrids into two types of relations by defining so-called intermediate founders. QTL effects are defined in terms of those intermediate founders. Marker based identity by descent relationships between intermediate founders define structuring matrices for the QTL effects that change along the genome. The dimension of the vector of QTL effects is reduced by the fact that there are fewer intermediate founders than parents. Furthermore, additional reduction in the number of QTL effects follows from the identification of founder groups by various algorithms. As a result, we obtain a powerful mixed model based statistical framework to identify QTLs in genetic backgrounds relevant to the elite germplasm of a commercial breeding program. The identification of such QTLs will provide the foundation for effective marker assisted and genome wide selection strategies. Analyses of an example data set show that QTLs are primarily identified in different heterotic groups and point to complementation of additive QTL effects as an important factor in hybrid performance.

Objectives: The thickness of the brain’s cortical gray matter (GM) and the fractional anisotropy (FA) of the cerebral white matter (WM) each follow an inverted U-shape trajectory with age. The two measures are positively correlated and may be modulated by common biological mechanisms. We employed four types of genetic analyses to localize individual genes acting pleiotropically upon these phenotypes. Methods: Whole-brain and regional GM thickness and FA values were measured from high-resolution anatomical and diffusion tensor MR images collected from 712, Mexican American participants (438 females, age = 47.9 ± 13.2 years) recruited from 73 (9.7 ± 9.3 individuals/family) large families. The significance of the correlation between two traits was estimated using a bivariate genetic correlation analysis. Localization of chromosomal regions that jointly influenced both traits was performed using whole-genome quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis. Gene localization was performed using SNP genotyping on Illumina 1M chip and correlation with leukocyte-based gene-expression analyses. The gene-expressions were measured using the Illumina BeadChip. These data were available for 371 subjects. Results: Significant genetic correlation was observed among GM thickness and FA values. Significant logarithm of odds (LOD ≥ 3.0) QTLs were localized within chromosome 15q22–23. More detailed localization reported no significant association (p < 5·10−5) for 1565 SNPs located within the QTLs. Post hoc analysis indicated that 40% of the potentially significant (p ≤ 10−3) SNPs were localized to the related orphan receptor alpha (RORA) and NARG2 genes. A potentially significant association was observed for the rs2456930 polymorphism reported as a significant GWAS finding in Alzheimer’s disease neuroimaging initiative subjects. The expression levels for RORA and ADAM10 genes were significantly (p < 0.05) correlated with both FA and GM thickness. NARG2 expressions were significantly correlated with GM thickness (p < 0.05) but failed to show a significant correlation (p = 0.09) with FA. Discussion: This study identified a novel...

Static behavior of a functionally graded magnetoelectroelastic hollow sphere subjected to hygrothermal loading in the spherically symmetric state is studied. The sphere could be rested on a Winkler elastic foundation on the inner and/or outer surfaces. It is assumed that the material properties obey a power law in the radial direction. Considering the axisymmetric heat conduction and moisture diffusion equations, temperature and moisture concentration distributions within the radius of the sphere are achieved. The governing coupled differential equations are exactly solved. Numerical examples are discussed in detail to show the significant influences of inhomogeneity index, hygrothermal loading, elastic foundation and electromagnetic boundary conditions on the static behavior of a functionally graded magnetoelectroelastic hollow sphere.

## Supersaturating silicon with transition metals by ion implantation and pulsed laser melting

We investigate the possibility of creating an intermediate band semiconductor by supersaturating Si with a range of transition metals (Au, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pd, Pt, W, and Zn) using ion implantation followed by pulsed laser melting (PLM). Structural characterization shows evidence of either surface segregation or cellular breakdown in all transition metals investigated, preventing the formation of high supersaturations. However, concentration-depth profiling reveals that regions of Si supersaturated with Au and Zn are formed below the regions of cellular breakdown. Fits to the concentration-depth profile are used to estimate the diffusive speeds, v D, of Au and Zn, and put lower bounds on v D of the other metals ranging from 10² to 10⁴ m/s. Knowledge of v D is used to tailor the irradiation conditions and synthesize single-crystal Si supersaturated with 10¹⁹ Au/cm³ without cellular breakdown. Values of v D are compared to those for other elements in Si. Two independent thermophysical properties, the solute diffusivity at the melting temperature, D s(T m), and the equilibrium partition coefficient, k e, are shown to simultaneously affect v D. We demonstrate a correlation between v D and the ratio D s(T m)/k e ⁰·⁶⁷, which is exhibited for Group III...

#rectangular plates#winkler foundation#foundation modulus#rotatory inertia#resonance#moving force#moving mass

The response of simply supported rectangular plates carrying moving masses and resting on variable Winkler elastic foundations is investigated in this work. The governing equation of the problem is a fourth order partial differential equation. In order to solve this problem, a technique based on separation of variables is used to reduce the governing fourth order partial differential equations with variable and singular coefficients to a sequence of second order ordinary differential equations. For the solutions of these equations, a modification of the Struble's technique and method of integral transformations are employed. Numerical results in plotted curves are then presented. The results show that response amplitudes of the plate decrease as the value of the rotatory inertia correction factor R0 increases. Furthermore, for fixed value of R0, the displacements of the simply supported rectangular plates resting on variable elastic foundations decrease as the foundation modulus F0 increases. The results further show that, for fixed R0 and F0, the transverse deflections of the rectangular plates under the actions of moving masses are higher than those when only the force effects of the moving load are considered. Therefore, the moving force solution is not a safe approximation to the moving mass problem. Hence...

We show how bilateral, linear, elastic foundations (i.e. Winkler foundations)
often regarded as heuristic, phenomenological models, emerge asymptotically
from standard, linear, three-dimensional elasticity. We study the parametric
asymptotics of a non-homogeneous linearly elastic bi-layer attached to a rigid
substrate as its thickness vanishes, for varying thickness and stiffness
ratios. By using rigorous arguments based on energy estimates, we provide a
first rational and constructive justification of reduced foundation models. We
establish the variational weak convergence of the three-dimensional elasticity
problem to a two-dimensional one, of either a "membrane over in-plane elastic
foundation", or a "plate over transverse elastic foundation". These two regimes
are function of the only two parameters of the system, and a phase diagram
synthesizes their domains of validity. Moreover, we derive explicit formulae
relating the effective coefficients of the elastic foundation to the elastic
and geometric parameters of the original three-dimensional system.; Comment: 21 pages, 2 figures

The critical buckling characteristics of hydrostatically pressurized complete
spherical shells filled with an elastic medium are demonstrated. A model based
on small deflection thin shell theory, the equations of which are solved in
conjunction with variational principles, is presented. In the exact
formulation, axisymmetric and inextensional assumptions are not used initially
and the elastic medium is modelled as a Winkler foundation, i.e., using
uncoupled radial springs with a constant foundation modulus that is independent
of wave numbers of shell buckling modes. Simplified approximations based on a
Rayleigh-Ritz approach are also introduced for critical buckling pressure and
mode number with a considerable degree of accuracy. Characteristic modal shapes
are demonstrated for a wide range of material and geometric parameters. A phase
diagram is established to obtain the requisite thickness to radius, and
stiffness ratios for a desired mode profile. The present exact formulation can
be readily extended to apply to more general cases of non-axisymmetric buckling
problems.; Comment: 24 pages, 9 figures

Beck's type column on Winkler type foundation is the subject of the present
analysis. Instead of the Bernoulli-Euler model describing the rod, two
generalized models will be adopted: Eringen non-local model corresponding to
nano-rods and viscoelastic model of fractional Kelvin-Voigt type. The analysis
shows that for nano-rod, the Herrmann-Smith paradox holds while for
viscoelastic rod it does not.

Strong shaking of structures during large earthquakes may result in some cases in partial separation of the base of the structure from the sail. This phenomenon of uplifting, which can affect the dynamic behavior of the structure significantly, even if the amount of uplift is small, is examined in this thesis. First the case of a rocking rigid block is investigated and then more complicated, flexible superstructures are introduced. Two foundation models which permit uplift are considered: the Winkler foundation and the much simpler "two-spring" foundation. Several energy dissipating mechanisms are also introduced into these models. It is shown that an equivalence between these two models for the foundation can be established, so that one can always work with the much simpler two-spring foundation. In this way complete analytical solutions can be derived in most cases. Moreover, simple approximate methods for the calculation of the apparent fundamental period of the rocking system are developed and simplified methods of analysis are proposed.
In general, uplift leads to a softer vibrating system which behaves nonlinearly, although the response is composed of a sequence of linear responses. As a result, the apparent fundamental resonant frequency of the uplifting system is always less than the fundamental resonant frequency of both the soil-structure interacting system...

TCC (graduação) - Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina. Campus Joinville. Engenharia de Infraestrutura.; Este trabalho tem por objetivo realizar um estudo da interação solo-estrutura em fundações
profundas submetidas a carregamentos laterais. Neste trabalho estudou-se o caso da ponte
sobre o Rio Anhanduí, na BR 262/MS, especialmente as condições geológicas e geotécnicas
em que se encontra esta estrutura. Um perfil estratigráfico foi idealizado a partir de sondagens
mistas efetuadas no local e parâmetros de comportamento foram derivados para os solos e
rochas que ocorrem na área. A partir destas informações foram modeladas curvas p-y para
observar e evidenciar o comportamento não linear do solo para um conjunto de estacas raiz. O
método utilizado para determinar o comportamento da interação solo-estrutura foi a solução
de Reese e Matlock (1956) para o modelo de Winkler, que aborda o solo como um conjunto
de molas lineares elásticas independentes entre si. Os resultados demonstraram que os esforços
cortantes e momentos máximos ocorrem em profundidade, atestando, desta forma, a necessidade
de estacas integralmente armadas. De forma complementar, foi avaliada a capacidade
de carga em rocha, pelos métodos de Kulhawy e Carter (1992) e pelo método de Terzaghi...
