• ### Stiffness Method and SBRA

Eventually I have managed to implement the full code for a simple Direct Stiffness calculator.The previous post has been conveniently modified to reflect this.The results have been fairly discouraging for my intemptions to use it as a basis for the SBR…

• ### DSF Implementation

Well…the following is the C++ code to achieve the initial stages of the DSF (e.g. member formation, globalization, merging and linear solving):main.cpp: #include <iostream>#include <math.h>#include “Stiffness.h”#include <vector>#inc…

• ### Direct Stiffness Method

Well…as promised, these past days I’ve been researching on the possiblity of efficiently use the SBRA through the application of MonteCarlo methods.I have been successful in my research and I have found this very interesting course:http://www.colorad…

• ### Simulation Based Reliability Assesment (SBRA)

This is the resume of the papers: Safety assessment of a steel frame using LRFD and SBRA methodsProbabilistic reliability assessment of a stell frame using the SBRA methodBoth developed under supervision of Pavel Marek (see previous post about structur…

• ### From Deterministic to Probabilistic Way of Thinking in Structural Engineering

This is a very interesting article from the AECEF (Association of European Civil Engineering Faculties)!  From Deterministic to Probabilistic Way of Thinking in Structural EngineeringJuly 9, 2001. Adjusted Reprint: European Association of Civil En…

• ### Limit State Design

Limit State Design is the method now used in every regulation (Eurocode, Spanish CTE, USA LRFD, …), so I think it is a primary target in the steepy road towards stochastic simulation.Actually, a lot of bibliography points from Limit State Design to F…

• ### Collision Detection Summary

Well, well…after a whole week of intense research, I think I already have some insight on Collision Detection so as to try to condense the matter in a post.The following is a brief report made out of the references stated at the end:INTRODUCTIONColli…

• ### Collision Detection Sources

Well, the last two days I’ve been researching on the topic of Collision Detection (as planned).After a short fight against OPCODE (http://www.codercorner.com/Opcode.htm), which stands for OPtimized COllision DEtection, I’ve been forced to abandon under…

• ### Working Programme

Well, today is the beginning of the new approach towards the thesis!According to my calendar, I still have 7,5 months here in Cercedilla (60km north of Madrid), in my parents’ house, with nothing to worry about but “ora et labora”…So, it seems reason…

• ### Bullet Physics Engine

After a few months banging my head against Bullet (http://bulletphysics.org), which apparently could make my life a lot easier:Bullet is a Collision Detection and Rigid Body Dynamics Library. The Library is Open Source and free for commercial use, unde…

• ### Thesis Proposal

IntroductionState-of-the-artNon-deterministic methods have been succesfully applied in science since the 50s to tackle uncertanty and to evaluate complexity.Lately, these very methods, combined with modern calculus tools (Finite Elemet Method, Ap…
