Seismic Performance of the Pier Considering Structural-Fluid Interaction with ANSYS Software

Abstract

In the present study, as the calculation of forces on the cylindrical structures of the sea has a special complexity, Morrison's mathematical model was used in the software. In addition, the kinematics of water particles is estimated to calculate their acceleration from the fifth-order non-static wave theory (Fenton method). In this paper, the analysis of the pier performance considering structural-fluid interaction using ANSYS soft is presented. Five models with the same period were considered and different wave heights and two different earthquake records of Tabas and Northwich were studied. Finally, node displacement, acceleration and reciprocal interaction forces were extracted and compared with the numerical values. The results indicated that the values of the studied parameters and the type of nodes were similar in the models without a record of earthquakes, but with the estimation of the earthquake, these values would be significant.

A Comparison of ETV and LA for the Determination of Trace Elements in Solid Samples by MIP OES

Abstract

The performance of electrothermal vaporization (ETV) and laser ablation (LA) of dry aerosols as sample introduction systems for microwave induced plasma optical emission spectrometry (MIP OES) are compared and evaluated in terms of detection limits, precision and accuracy for the determination of trace elements (Ca, Cd, Cu, Fe, Mg, Mn, Sr, Zn) in the same solid micro samples. In MIP OES both radiation sources can be independently adjusted to optimize the sampling process and then its subsequent excitation. A univariate approach and simplex optimization procedure were used to obtain the best signal/noise (S/N) ratio and derive analytical figures of merit. A comparison using a Student’s t-test between the results obtained by both ETV/LA-MIP OES methods for trace elements, and concentrations in standard reference material (SRM) and certified reference materials (CRMs) showed that there was no significant differences on a 95 % confidence level. The detection limits of the tested elements in solid samples by ETV/LA-MIP OES were in the range of 0.1 to 11 µg g−1 for all elements determined, while the corresponding absolute values in the range of ng. The precision of the results for ETV-MIP OES and LA-MIP OES varied between 2 and 4 % and 3 and 7 %, respectively. The linear dynamic ranges in the ETV/LA-MIP OES are extend over three decades of concentration. The methods were validated by the analysis of NIST SRM 2711Montana Soil, NRCC CRM PACS-2 Marine Sediment and NRCC CRM TORT-2 Lobster Hepatopancreas of different matrix composition and by the standard addition technique.
