Discontinuous continuity: Structural change and its (divergent) meanings in Latin American structuralism and neo-structuralism
(Universidad Nacional de Colombia, 2020-06)
This paper analyses the continuities and discontinuities regarding the concept of structural change in Latin American structuralism and neo-structuralism and considers the global context in which these ideas and their ...
The effectiveness of the gyroscopic effect for controlling structural vibrations
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2021-07)
It is well known that seismic and wind induced vibration is an important issue in structural performance. To mitigate the problem of structural vibrations, many methodologies have been proposed and implemented. In this ...
Experimental Validation of the Structural Fuse Concept
Seismic design relies on inelastic deformations through hysteretic behavior. However, this translates into damage on structural elements, permanent system deformations following an earthquake, and possibly high cost for ...
Detection of structural damage and estimation of reliability using a multidimensional monitoring approach
(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2018-04-01)
Many structural elements are exposed to load conditions that are difficult to model during the design phase, such as environmental uncertainties, random impacts, and overloading, amongst others, thus increasing unprogrammed ...

Structural diagnosis of rail vehicles and method for redesign
(Polish Society of Technical Diagnostics, 2014-01-01)
Structures of rail vehicles are designed for a useful structural life of 30 years. However, structural problems which reduce the mechanical performance of the structure might appear due to normal operation conditions, in ...
Vaisman solvmanifolds and relations with other geometric structures
(International Press Boston, 2020-02)
We characterize unimodular solvable Lie algebras with Vaisman structures in terms of Kahler flat Lie algebras equipped with a suitable derivation. Using this characterization we obtain algebraic restrictions for the existence ...

Generalized complex and paracomplex structures on product manifolds
(Real Acad Ciencias Exactas Fisicas & Naturales, 2020-07-13)
On a product manifold (M, r), we consider four geometric structures compatible with r, e.g. hyper-paracomplex or bi-Lagrangian, and define distinguished generalized complex or paracomplex structures on M, which interpolate ...
BeEP Server: using evolutionary information for quality assessment of protein structure models
(Oxford University Press, 2013-07)
The BeEP Server (http://www.embnet.qb.fcen.uba.ar/embnet/beep.php) is an online resource aimed to help in the endgame of protein structure prediction. It is able to rank submitted structural models of a protein through an ...
