Piggyback Tunnels
Coincidental alignments of the Central Artery Tunnel and the Transitway subway line under the streets of Dewey Square in Boston presented the sponsoring agencies with a rare opportunity...

Behavior and Rehabilitation of Older RC Bridge T-Joints

Seismic Upgrading of Outrigger Knee Joints

Documenting Design-Build
For engineers more familiar with the traditional design–bid–build process, design–build might present some unforeseen risks and responsibilities. To define and allocate these, the Engineers...

Enabler Chassis Features and Mobiltiy Analysis
The Enabler is a proposed Lunar Base work vehicle. The unique construction of the Enabler's six-wheeled chassis provides unusual articulation for steering, balancing, and overcoming obstacles....

The Optimal Selection of Robot Modules for Space Manipulators
Monolithic robot systems are poorly suited to the broad requirements and uncertainties of space automation applications. Designers have considered building many robots, each of which can...

A Conceptual Study of A Solar Power Satellite Using Centrifugal Force
We studied the self deployable Solar Power Satellite (SPS) using centrifugal force in order to explore ways in reducing construction costs. We designed a 340 kW SPS, and studied the unfolding...

Behavior of Bolted Joints in 3-D Braided Composites
As composites are used more as replacements for metals in space structures, the question arises as to the most efficient way to join the components. Mechanical fasteners are a common joining...

Nonlinear Collapse of Offshore Jacket Structures
The Joint Industry Tubular Frames Project was established with ten oil industry sponsors to investigate the reserve and residual strength of frames typical of offshore structures. To date...

Progress in Reinforced Concrete Column Design: An Introduction
The Joint ASCE-ACI Committee 441 on Reinforced Concrete Columns is investigating a number of problems related to structural behavior and design of reinforced concrete columns. This paper...

A Study of Jointless Bridge Behavior
The pressing need for maintenance free and low construction cost bridges, has increased the interest and activity in building integral or jointless bridges. The investigation of the behavior...

Validation of the European Yield Model for Nailed Connections
Recent changes in National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS) connection design methods make it necessary to validate the European yield model (EYM) for nails. Test values...

Cyclic Behavior of Joints Between Steel Beams and Reinforced Concrete Columns
The design and behavior of composite beam-column joints for seismic design are reviewed based on the results of tests. Issues addressed include the strength, deformation, and toughness...

Behavior of Tall Frame Combining Rigid and Semi-Rigid Connections
In this paper, the applicability of the mixed use of rigid and semi-rigid connections in the tall frame is discussed. It is tried. for 4-bay 8-storey frame to be numerically analyzed for...

Experimental Study on a Buckling Behavior of a Wooden Single-Layer Space Frame of Reticular Shell on a Hexagonal Plan: Influence due to the Bolted Joint Looseness with Axial and Bending Resistance
The authors have investigated about the structural behavior of a wooden single-layer space frame structure with the bolted joints. We have carried out a buckling tests of a wooden single-layer...

Research and Application of Various Joints of Space Grid Structures in China
This paper introduces the research work results and applications of various joints of space grid structures in China. It also gives out formulas for determining the loading capacity and...

Effect of Joint Rigidity on Buckling Strength of Single Layer Lattice Domes
The present paper discusses the effect of the joint rigidity on the buckling strength of single layer lattice domes, with regular three way grids, under vertical loading. The effect of...

Numerical Simulations of the CCS under the Joint Effects of Coastal Geometry and Surface Forcing
Using the S-Coordinate Rutgers University Model (SCRUM) of Song and Haidvogel(1993), a coupled coastal (86 m depth) and deep ocean (4600 m depth) California Coastal region has been investigated...

Joint Probability of Superelevated Water Levels and Wave Heights at Duck, North Carolina
Storm events are typically classified as a percent occurrence or return interval based on their peak storm elevation. The stage is the combination of storm surge, astronomical tide and...
