Sobhan Mosayebidorcheh; Taha Mosayebidorcheh; D. D. Ganji; M. Mahmoodi

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 25 May 2020

Abstract
  This article is aimed to introduce a new hybrid analytical-digital technique for solving a wide range of problems in fluid mechanics. This method is according to the Different Transform Method (DTM) and Newton’s Iterative Method (NIM). In the Boundary Value Problems (BVP), the system and the boundary ...  Read More

2. Failure Analysis of a Partially-Collapsed Building using Analytical Hierarchical Process

George Uwadiegwu Alaneme; Gregory C. Ezeokpube; Elvis M. Mbadike

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 25 May 2020

Abstract
  Building-failure usually results to collapse if not discovered and properly addressed. Building-collapse/failure most times cause loss of properties and lives. A case study of a partially-collapsed one-story building is presented for emphasis with technical-assessment of the actual collapse cause so ...  Read More

Uncertainties Evaluation of Loads and Loading Conditions

Franziska SCHMIDT; Marcel Nowak; Mariia Nesterova; Oliver Fischer

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 26 May 2020

Abstract
  When dealing with the construction of a bridge or the assessment of an existing bridge to traffic loads, one important point is the prediction of reliability levels for critical details to the expected traffic loads in its remaining lifetime: this is done here for details of a steel-orthotropic bridge ...  Read More
