Short-Term Records and Extreme Wind Speeds
An empirical study was conducted to determine whether design wind speeds can be estimated confidently from short records, i.e., records extending over periods of a few years. The study...

Planar Strength of Restrained Beam Columns
A theoretical method that describes the planar, elastic-plastic behavior of a beam-column loaded at the ends and along the length is described. The theory considers the three important...

Minimization of Composite Dead Load Effects
A method is presented whereby the effects of the sequencing of dead load effects on continuous composite highway bridges may be determined. All relevant time-dependent concrete properties...

Longitudinally Reinforced Cold-Formed Steel Beam Webs
In cold-formed steel structures, the bending strength of beams can be improved by adding longitudinal stiffeners to web elements. This study deals with the required minimum rigidity of...

Beam-To-Column Web Connection Details
For a beam-to-column web connection where the beam is attached to the column perpendicular to the plane of the column web, the theoretical maximum strength of this beam and column assemblage...

Beam Web Shear Connections: An Experimental Study
Bolted shear web connections were tested to evaluate the 1978 AISC Specification provisions concerning edge distance, end distance, and bearing stresses. Tests wee performed on beams with...

Seismic Behavior of Moment Connections and Joints
The behavior of moment connections and beam-column joints in moment resisting steel frames subjected to severe earthquakes is studied. The cyclic inelastic deformation capacities of different...

Columns with Semirigid Joints
The influence of realistic semi-rigid end restraint on the strength and behaviour of real steel columns is investigated. An analytical procedure is developed which includes the effects...

Modified Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Beams
A method for analyzing reinforced concrete beams and beam-columns is developed, and the analytical results are compared to experimental data obtained by other investigators. The present...

Ultimate Strength of Gapped Joints in RHS Trusses
A theoretical and empirical analysis is presented for the ultimate static strength of gapped joints in welded Rectangular Hollow Section trusses having one compression bracing member and...

Beam-to-Column Connection Research in Japan
Present status of the research on the beam-to-column connection in Japan is reviewed. The design philosophy of beam-to-column moment connections of steel building frames under the unique...

Finite Element Method for Interface Problems
A method for incorporating interface discontinuities in a finite element analysis of discontinuous media is presented. For computational purposes the procedure is implemented into the...

Seismic Response of Friction Damped Braced Frames
A new concept of aseismic design for steel framed buildings is proposed. By providing sliding friction devices in the bracing system of the framed buildings, their earthquake resistance...

Ultimate Load Testing of Space Trusses
The results of tests to destruction of twelve space trusses are reviewed. The results cover model tests of 3' to 8' span and larger scale tests of 24'...

The Earthquake Problem in the Eastern United States
Earthquakes in the eastern United States have longer recurrence times, less attenuation of damaging ground motion, and occur in more diffuse source zones than their western counterparts....

Cyclic Analysis of Fix-Ended Steel Beam-Columns
The paper describes an analytical model for theoretically predicting the inelastic cyclic behavior of fix-ended steel beam-columns subjected to one cycle of axial loading. The analysis...

Cracking at Openings in Prestressed Beams at Transfer
The behavior of prestressed concrete beams with rectangular openings is investigated at transfer. The theoretical analysis for the potentially-splitting stresses around the opening is...

Reinforced Gypsum for Egyptian Housing
Reinforcement of gypsum for wall and roof panels is investigated using Egyptian gypsum combined with fibers and Nile reeds. Panels reinforced with jute, glass wool, wire, polypropylene...

Buckling of Stiffened Webs by Local Edge Loads
A finite strip method is used for analysing the buckling of longitudinally stiffened web plates subjected to transverse local edge loading. The probLem is of particular importance for...
