K.B. Bozdogan

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    Differential Quadrature Method (DQM) is a powerful method which can be used to solve numerical problems in the analysis of structural and dynamical systems. In this study the governing equation which represents the free vibration of coupled shear walls is solved using the DQM method. A one-dimensional model has been used in this study. At the end of study various examples are presented to verify the accuracy of the method.
 
Key Words
