    Experimental study of damping in civil engineering structures was done using smart materials (NiTi SMA). The study is focused on the stayed cables for bridges. The cable oscillations are induced by wind, rain or traffic. ...
  • SMA in mitigation of extreme loads in civil engineering: damping actions in stayed cables 

    Torra Ferré, Vicenç; Isalgue Buxeda, Antonio; Auguet Sangrá, Carlota E.; Carreras, Guillem; Lovey, Francisco Carlos; Terriault, Patrick; Dieng, Lamine (Trans Tech Publications, 2011-10-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Guaranteeing the use of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) in mitigation of extreme load effects requires a deep study of the SMA behavior according to the specific requirements of the application. In particular, for a storm is ...
  • The SMA: an effective damper in civil engineering that smoothes oscillations 

    Torra Ferré, Vicenç; Auguet Sangrá, Carlota E.; Carreras, Guillem; Dieng, Lamine; Lovey, F.C.; Terriault, P. (2012)
