    The vertical bearing mechanism of screw piles was studied by the model test and numerical analysis. The results of the analysis show that the bearing capacity of the screw piles depends on the soil shear strength and a shear zone along the pile will take place in the surrounding soil under ultimate load. Parameter analysis was presented including the pile-soil interface properties, the soil shear strength, and the design parameters of the screw pile. The parameter study indicates that the key factors influence the vertical bearing capacity of screw piles are the soil shear strength, the screw pitch and the width of screw. A calculation method was obtained based on the field test and numerical results.

    2010, 44 (06):  735-0738. 
    Abstract ( 3792 )   Save
    A damage detection method for the cantilever beam with transverse crack was proposed. According to the theoretical analysis, damage of the beam is modeled as an additional flexibility. The relationship between the transverse displacement and the location of the damage and the additional flexibility was constructed. The ratio of the moment of inertia of the cracked section to the moment of inertia of the intact section is defined as the coefficient of the moment of inertia. A formulation for calculating the coefficient of the moment inertia from the additional flexibility was constructed using the FEM simulation. The status of damage is estimated according to the coefficient of the moment of inertia. An example about a trapezium crosssection cantilever beam was given to validate the correction of the formulation and the method.

    2010, 44 (06):  792-0796. 
    Abstract ( 4186 )   Save
    Based on the analysis of travel survey data, this paper developed and appliesd the recursive simultaneous bivariate probit modeling method to model the relationship between trip chaining and travel mode behavior of home based commuting trip chain. The analysis is carried out from two directions, namely trip chaining to travel mode, and travel mode to trip chaining. The developed model takes into consideration the effects of interdependencies between trip chaining and travel mode choice on each choosing behavior, which emphasizes the guidance of decision mechanism on travel behavior forecasting. The results show the pattern that trip chaining drives mode choice is the dominating trend. This means travelers first decide how to organize different activities and travel into trip chains based on individual and family needs and then make travel mode choice condition under the limit of trip chaining. These findings have important implications for travel demand forecasting and for the design and carrying out of demand management measures.

    Abstract ( 3745 )   Save
    Considering that the acceleration time history response contains the structure characteristic information, and the wavelet packet energy distribution varies in different condition of the same structure, the characteristic information of the structure was excavated in the eyes of wavelet packet energy. Taking the serial acceleration time history response from shake table tests of a reinforced concrete bridge column as the object of study, the wavelet packet method was used to carry on the statistical analysis of the wavelet packet energy character of the different condition, including the mean, the variance, the standard deviation, the relative average deviation, and the relative standard deviation of wavelet packet energy. The results of different index indicate that the mean of wavelet packet energy can represent the rule that the structure response increases gradually with the increase of acceleration; the values of different index under the same conditions vary with the dynamic performance and stiffness distribution of structure.

The study shows that the costweighted distance algorithm is scientifically and accurately suitable for the traffic accessibility comparison of preand post great infrastructures. The “China effect boundary” of BSSP is the southern area of the “Xuanhui River estuary of Hebei provinceGaolan county of Ningxia Hui autonomous regionShache county of Xinjiang uighur autonomous region” line and the northern area of the “Suizhong county of Liaoning provinceDongwuzhumuqin banner of inner mongolia autonomous region” line. After the construction of BSSP, the time cost between the two sides of BSSP decreases much and the accessibility area of the node cities increases significantly, which follows the spatial decline law. The accessibility impact on coastal cities of BSSP is more than that on inland cities, and that on the southern area of Yangtze river is more than that on the Northeast.

    Abstract ( 4077 )   Save
    A numerical model was established using finite element method in time domain for fiber mooring lines. For different water depths, the displacementlateral force relations were compared for three types of mooring system and the corresponding effective utilization rates were calculated. This shows that it is more competitive for the taut mooring system using lightweight fiber lines than the other ones in deep water. The dynamic analysis of the polyester mooring line was conducted, where a linear material property was proposed to fit the nonlinear stressstrain relations, the result was compared with the nonlinear elastic model. It was found that the simulation by linear fitting to the material properties in the numerical model can not obtain a reasonable result and it is necessary to use nonlinear elastic model for fiber lines. For the mooring system of a Spar, three types of fiber lines were used respectively. Dynamic analysis was performed and all tensions of the threetype lines were compared. The results show that polyester mooring lines present the best performance.

    Abstract ( 4092 )   Save
    Many large highspeed and long runout landslides could fly in the air at the shortrange stage. The aerodynamic effect was studied for the case of highspeed sliding mass flying at the shortrange stage. The motion differential equations were educed in consideration of the ground effect. Taking the Yigong landslide in China as an example, this paper applied the numerical analysis method to study the flying law of highspeed sliding mass. The calculated results illustrate that, because of the aerodynamic effect to the sliding mass, the horizontal thrust force and vertical lift force both increase. The horizontal speed increases, but its amplitude is little. At the same time, the vertical speed tends to increase more slowly. Therefore, the flying time is longer and the distance is farther than those without consideration of the aerodynamic effect. The results are more reasonable by comparison with the field observation.

    Abstract ( 3509 )   Save
    The maximum entropy probability density function (PDF) was derived based on the maximum entropy principle. In addition, the widely used parameterized model in longterm significant wave height distribution was introduced. The two methods were applied to describe the longterm significant wave height distribution. In order to test the accuracy of these two methods, the longterm winds and waves data measured by buoys in the East China Sea were selected to fit the significant wave height distribution. Moreover, PDFs of the abovementioned two methods were compared with the observed data. The result shows that the value of parameter γ in PDF of the maximum entropy distribution can demonstrate the complexity of the sea states, besides, PDF of the maximum entropy distribution fits well at different wind speed. Whereas the PDF derived from the parameterized model fits better with the observed data at lower wind speed than at higher wind speed; the derivation occurs in the latter case.

    This paper mainly studyied the asymptotic behavior of discontinuous solutions to the Cauchy problems for linear and semilinear thermoelastic equations with second sound and variable coefficients in one space variable. When the relaxation parameter goes to zero, the discontinuity of temperature vanishes, and discontinuities of elastic waves and heat flux are propagated with the elastic speeds. Moreover, these discontinuities decay exponentially when the time goes to infinity, and the decay rates not only depend on the growth rate of the nonlinear source terms and the heat conduction coefficient, but also depend on the change rates of the elastic speeds.
