Combined Compression and Bending Moment According to AISC H.1B

VE 1006

22 September 2018

Using AISC Manual tables, determine the available compressive and flexural strengths and if the ASTM A992 W14x99 beam has sufficient available strength to support the axial forces and moments shown in Figure 1, obtained from a second-order analysis that includes P-𝛿 effects.

Moment Frame Design According To AISC C.1A

VE 1001

22 September 2018

Determine the required strengths and effective length factors for the ASTM A992 material columns in the moment frame shown in Figure 1 for the maximum gravity load combination, using LRFD and ASD.

Dynamic Force Distribution

VE 0121

10 July 2018

A single-mass system with dashpot is subjected to a constant loading force. Determine the spring force, the damping force and the inertial force at given test time. In this verification example, the Kelvin--Voigt dashpot, namely, a spring and a damper element in serial connection, is decomposed into its purely viscous and purely elastic parts, in order to better evaluate the reaction forces.

Catenary

VE 0079

10 July 2018

A very stiff cable is suspended between two supports. Determine the equilibrium shape of the cable, the so-called catenary, consider the gravitational acceleration and neglect the stiffness of the cable. Verify the position of the cable at given test points.

Buckling of Beam with Various Cross-Sections

VE 0093

10 July 2018

A column is composed of a concrete part - rectangle 100/200 and of a steel part - profile I 200. It is subjected to pressure force. Determine the critical load and corresponding load factor. The theoretical solution is based on the buckling of a simple beam. In this case two regions have to be taken into account due to different moment of inertia and material properties.

Thin Rectangular Orthotropic Plate Under Uniform Load

VE 0091

10 July 2018

Thin rectangular orthotropic plate is simply supported and loaded by the uniformly distributed pressure. The directions of axis x and y coincide with the principal directions. While neglecting self-weight, determine the maximum deflection of the plate.

Buckling of a Circular Ring

VE 0094

10 July 2018

A thin circular ring of rectangular cross-section is exposed to an external pressure. Determine the critical load and corresponding load factor for in-plane buckling.

Single-Mass Oscillation with Dashpot

VE 0120

21 February 2018

A single mass system with dashpot is subjected to the constant loading force. Determine the deflection and the velocity of the dashpot endpoint in given test time.

VE 0086

20 February 2018

A quarter-circle beam with a rectangular cross-section is loaded by means of an out-of-plane force. This force causes a bending moment, torsional moment and a transverse force. While neglecting self-weight, determine the total deflection of the curved beam.

VE 0087

20 February 2018

A curved beam consists of two beams with a rectangular cross-section. The horizontal beam is loaded by a distributed loading. While neglecting self-weight, determine the maximal stress on the top surface of the horizontal beam.
