Blocking the Tide
The city of Venice is in peril as a result of increased tidal flooding, and a proposed system of movable gates offers the greatest promise of safeguarding the city's future....

Express Design
Milwaukee's high-stakes effort to win its share of the lucrative convention market hinges on its new Midwest Express Center, a 670,000-sq-ft exhibition and convention complex....

Rotation Capacity of Partial Strength Composite Connections

Plastic Hinge Theory for Composite Floors and Frames

Practical Advanced Analysis for Steel Frame Design

An Approximate Method for Assessment of Seismic Damage on Buildings

Stability of Beams in an Elastic Foundation

Project Agreements
Project agreements and early project planning should be accomplished at the same time. However, it seems that project agreements are often developed prior to any definitive project work...

Illinois Department of Transportation Seismic Bridge Condition Survey

Plastic-Hinge Analysis for Frames by Virtual Distortions

An Assessment of Seismic Damage on Buildings

Instrumentation and Testing of a Three Hinge Arch for Service Loads Increase
A three hinge arch railroad bridge was instrumented and tested to evaluate its condition and the required modification for increasing the service loads. Initially the structure was designed...

Design Implications of Advanced Analysis in LRFD
This paper discusses two advanced analysis methods, and their use in LRFD format. The first approach is called the notional load plastic hinge method and the second is called the second-order...

How to Optimize Frames Using Plastic Design Concept
An optimal design procedure using plastic design concept was presented. For low-rise building frames, optimal plastic designs can be made using the plastic limit load as a basis of design....

Distributed Flexibility Models for Nonlinear Analysis of RC Structures
The application of distributed flexibility member models in inelastic analysis of reinforced concrete (RC) structural systems is examined. While the utilization of flexibility-based formulations...

Sampling Sediment on a Complex Site
The remedial design of a complex Superfund site hinged on a variety of sampling methods required by the site's diverse terrain. Cadmium, lead, cobalt and nickel are the culprits...

Ductility Analysis of Overload and Settlement
The concept of sufficient ductility to avoid premature or brittle failures is gaining wide acceptance in structural engineering and is an important aspect in mitigating the consequences...

Finite Element Analysis of a Highway Bridge Hinge
A highway bridge hinge is a very important element in bridge design. It releases thermal stresses that may be developed in the superstructure or the substructure of a bridge. A common...

Design of Monosymmetric Sections in Flexure
Monosymmetric members are generally I-shaped, symmetrical about the plane of the web, and characteristically have a larger compression flange than tension flange. Examples are crane girders...

The Influence of Preform on the Vibration Mode of a Thin Plate
In this paper, an algorithm is developed for the calculation of the vibration mode of a preformed thin plate. The principal governing equations are derived by using the large-deflection...
