Dynamic analysis of concrete beams reinforced with Tio2 nano particles under earthquake load
Morteza Sharifi, Reza Kolahchi and Mahmood Rabani Bidgoli

    This research studies the dynamic analysis of a concrete column reinforced with titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles under earthquake load. The effect of nanoparticles accumulation in a region of concrete column is examined using Mori-Tanaka model. The structure is simulated mathematically based on the theory of sinusoidal shear deformation theory (SSDT). By calculating strain-displacement and stress-strain relations, the system energies include potential energy, kinetic energy, and external works are derived. Then, using the Hamilton\'s principle, the governing equations for the structure are extracted. Using these equations, the response of the concrete column under earthquake load is investigated using the numerical methods of differential quadrature (DQ) and Newark. The purpose of this study is to study the effects of percentage of nanoparticles, nanoparticles agglomeration, geometric parameters and boundary conditions on the dynamic response of the structure. The results indicate that by increasing the volume percent of TiO2 nanoparticles, the maximum dynamic deflection of the structure decreases.
