The multiple tuned mass damper (MTMD) system is applied to control vertical bending buffeting response.

A new semiactive lever-type tuned mass damper (TMD) with an adjustable frequency is proposed to control vertical bending buffeting and torsional buffeting and flutter in the whole velocity range of bridge decks.

A nonlinear dynamic model of an electrostatic torsional micromirror considering the coupled effect of the torsion and vertical bending motion of its torsional beam simultaneously is presented.

Longitudinal stresses due to combined horizontal and vertical bending moments in ships, corresponding to a return period of 20 years, are estimated by linear response analysis.

Nonlinear effects are identified on different vertical ship responses, namely on the heave and pitch motions, the vertical accelerations, and the vertical bending moment.

Estimation of the effect of green water and bow flare slamming on the wave-induced vertical bending moment using closed-form expression.

However, a vertical bending moment is not the only loading component a ship is exposed to.

In addition of the segment forces, the vertical bending moment and shear force were measured at midship.

The vertical bending moment varies along the length of the ship.

Coupled motion equations are solved in time domain, based on which the vertical bending moments of the hull are obtained for both cases when the hull is either considered as a rigid body or as an elastic body.The results are compared with those obtained from linear theory as well as model tests. Good agreement is achieved between the non-linear computer simulations and the experimental data. It is shown that the method can be used to predict the vertical bending moments in the range of those wave lengths which...

Good agreement is achieved between the non-linear computer simulations and the experimental data. It is shown that the method can be used to predict the vertical bending moments in the range of those wave lengths which have significant contribution to the longitudinal strength of ships. It is sure that the current method may be further developed to determine the extreme bending moments and improve the existing regulations for calculating the strength of ships.

The ultimate longitudinal strength of container ships was analyzed by a simplified method. The interaction curves for the ultimate strength of container ships under combined vertical and horizontal bending are obtained according to the results of a series of calculations for the hull subjected to bending conditions with different angles of curvature. It is found that the interaction curves are asymmetrical, because the hull cross-section of a container ship is not symmetrical about the horizontal axis and the...

The ultimate longitudinal strength of container ships was analyzed by a simplified method. The interaction curves for the ultimate strength of container ships under combined vertical and horizontal bending are obtained according to the results of a series of calculations for the hull subjected to bending conditions with different angles of curvature. It is found that the interaction curves are asymmetrical, because the hull cross-section of a container ship is not symmetrical about the horizontal axis and the behavior of the structural members under compression is different from that under tension due to the non-linearity caused by buckling. An interaction equation for container ships was proposed based on the statistics results of the calculation of 6 container ships.

In structural types and working condition, there is obvious difference between split hopper barge and hopper barge. The hull girder strength of split hopper barge with the two halfhulls connected is to be checked, it's the same as hopper barge. In addition, the hull girder strength of each halfhull of split hopper barge is to be checked, which considers each halfhull as being subjected to independent bending, including both the vertical bending moment and horizontal bending moment acting within the well area....

The hull girder strength of split hopper barge with the two halfhulls connected is to be checked, it's the same as hopper barge. In addition, the hull girder strength of each halfhull of split hopper barge is to be checked, which considers each halfhull as being subjected to independent bending, including both the vertical bending moment and horizontal bending moment acting within the well area.
