  • Tran, Duane (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    Structural optimization is present in the design of many fields. Its use in structural engineering is to allow structural engineers to create efficient structures with unique artistic architectural outlook. In the current ...
  • Siavashani, Issac (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    Use of buck converters for stepping down voltages as a replacement for linear regulator is increasing. Due to their minimal losses, buck converters have improved efficiency. The main goal of this thesis is to further ...
  • Richardson, Samuel Rit (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    Laboratory experiments play a critical role in earthquake engineering research. Hybrid simulation provides a viable technique to assess structural performance through component tests. One challenge exists for current ...
  • Khan, Maryam I. (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    Real Time Hybrid Simulation divides a structure into experimental and analytical substructures. The experimental substructures are physically tested in laboratories while the analytical substructures are computationally ...
  • Kean, Benjamin Aaron (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    The Steel Plate Shear Wall (SPSW) is a structural system used today in design for the primary Lateral Force Resisting System (LFRS) of a building. In the initial design stage the fundamental period of the structure is ...
