The substructuring concept has been used in different forms such as in hybrid simulation and parallel computing methods, all contributing significantly to experimental testing and numerical analysis research programs. In this paper, unlike previous studies, the main goal is to use the substructuring technique to develop a framework which expands the capabilities of current nonlinear programs, enabling detailed analysis of mixed-type reinforced concrete (RC) systems in an integrated fashion, to… Expand
Distributed analysis of interacting soil and structural systems under dynamic loading
Accurate, verifiable, and efficient analytical models for interacting soil and structure systems are still very challenging. While geotechnical software usually has limited capacity for structuralExpand
