Im Lebenszyklus von Bauobjekten verursachen Medienbrüche bei der Informationsweitergabe regelmäßig Datenverluste. Mit dem Modell des „Intelligenten Bauteils“ wurde eine Lösung entwickelt, um einen durchgängigen Datenfluss ohne Medienbrüche mit Hilfe der RFID-Technologie zu gewährleisten. Im vorliegenden Abschlussbericht zum Forschungsvorhaben „IntelliBau2“ werden die Nutzungsvorteile der RFID-Technologie in der Fertigteilproduktion dargestellt.
This document presents an evaluate of latest "AASHTO LRFD Bridge layout standards" correct to using high-strength reinforcing metal and different grades of reinforcing metal having no discernible yield plateau. The record additionally comprises prompt language to the "AASHTO LRFD Bridge layout standards" that may let using high-strength reinforcing metal with distinctive yield strengths now not more than a hundred ksi.

3 Parameters earthquake. 45) by which the fault surface simply becomes Af = πr 2 . 3 we can determine a static displacement d from the relation M0 = μAf d. 25 s. With this information we can initialize a source time function M0 (t). A smooth source time function (integrated Gauss function) mimicking a rise time of approx. 25 s and the resulting analytical displacement seismograms are shown in Fig. 29. The seismograms show a complicated waveform that contain both P- and S-wave signals as well as near- and intermediate field terms that result in permanent displacements.
X) and μ(x) are the Lamé parameters, the latter being the shear modulus; δij is the Kronecker delta. We will discuss anisotropic elastic parameters in the section on rheologies. In principle, these nested relations can be merged into one equation. e. 3) + ∂z μ(∂z uy + ∂y uz ) + Myz + fy , with equivalent expressions for the other two motion components (see exercises). We anticipate that the temporal and spatial derivatives in these equations cannot be solved analytically in the general case, which is the reason why we have to employ numerical methods.
5 Time (s) 3 Boundary and initial conditions 27 Johnson (1974). The analytical solution is part of the supplementary electronic material. g. layers). Examples are stratifications in sediments, the crust–mantle (Moho) discontinuity, the core–mantle boundary, or the inner-core boundary. Due to lithostatic pressure such discontinuities can in most cases be treated as perfectly welded interfaces. In this case, displacement and tractions are continuous. At the interface between two media 1 and 2 this condition can be expressed as (1) = σij nj (1) ui (2) ui .
