Abstract

A bibliographical review of the finite element methods (FEMs) applied for the linear and nonlinear, static and dynamic analyses of basic structural elements from the theoretical as well as practical points of view is given. The bibliography at the end of the paper contains 1,726 references to papers, conference proceedings and theses/dissertations dealing with the analysis of beams, columns, rods, bars, cables, discs, blades, shafts, membranes, plates and shells that were published in 1996‐1999.

The effects of fatigue load level and plate thickness on the fatigue performance of reinforced concrete T-beam bridges.

Abstract

Purpose

The effects of fatigue load level and plate thickness on the fatigue performance of reinforced concrete T-beam bridges.

Design/methodology/approach

Fatigue load tests were performed based on the fatigue damage theory of reinforced concrete, combined with finite element model analysis. The other conditions are controlled separately, and the fatigue performance of the T-beam bridge carriageway slab under different fatigue load levels and different plate thicknesses is studied.

Findings

The fatigue process of the carriageway slab of a reinforced concrete T-beam bridge is divided into three stages: fatigue damage generation, fatigue damage development and fatigue failure. Under certain other conditions, as the fatigue load level increases, the fatigue damage of the carriageway slab accelerates; as the thickness of the carriageway slab increases, the fatigue resistance of the carriageway slab improves.

Research limitations/implications

Tests and simulations have been carried out, but have not been applied to actual engineering for the time being.

Practical implications

Increasing the thickness of the carriageway slab in actual engineering is conducive to improving the fatigue performance of the bridge, and heavy-duty traffic has a greater impact on the durability of the bridge.

Social implications

It has certain reference value for bridge design, inspection and subsequent maintenance and reinforcement.

Originality/value

The originality of this article lies in designing and carrying out static and cyclic load tests separately, while introducing material damage models based on a large number of references and combining finite element analysis to consider the impact of a specific factor on fatigue performance. The test and analysis results can provide reference for bridge design and inspection.

Abstract

Mainstream pornography is popular, freely accessible, and infused with themes of male dominance, aggression, and female subservience. Through depicting sex in these ways, mainstream pornography has the potential to influence the further development of harmful sexual scripts that condone or endorse violence against women and girls. These concerns warrant the adoption of a harms-based perspective in critical examinations of pornography's influence on sexual experiences. This chapter reports on findings from interviews with 24 heterosexual emerging adults living in Aotearoa/New Zealand about how pornography has impacted their lives. Despite a shared awareness among participants of mainstream pornography's misogynistic tendencies, and the potential for harm from those displays, men's and women's experiences were profoundly gendered. Men's reported experiences were often associated with concerns about their own sexual behaviors, performances, and/or abilities. Conversely, women's experiences were often shaped by how pornography had affected the way that men related to them sexually. Their experiences included instances of sexual coercion and assault which were not reported by the men. These findings signal the need for a gendered lens, situated within a broader harms-based perspective, in examinations of pornography's influence.

Abstract

In this chapter, we address the question of what health economic models represent. Are they realistic? And, does model realism matter? Or, is model usefulness in terms of informing pricing, reimbursement, and prescribing decisions all policymakers care about? The usefulness of models is circumscribed given that: (1) market failure is inherent in healthcare and (2) models oversimplify the preference structure underlying choices. We suggest, however, that models which employ the ceteris paribus clause can be useful in order to isolate factors that play a role in healthcare decision-making and ultimately characterize agents’ multiattribute utility functions through discrete choice experiments. As a result, policymakers gain important knowledge about decision criteria in the healthcare system.
