Dynamic Stability of Statically Pre-Loaded Systems

Settling Down
Engineers in Florida will prepare the sandy foundation of a future power plant by preloading it with sand for as long as a year....

Rationalizing the Practice of Strut Preloading for Braced Excavations

Deterministic and Probabilistic Analyses of Preload Design at a Hydraulic Fill Site

Characterization of Structural Response for Systems with Loose Joints

Design for Underpinning the Central Artery

Modelng of Strength Degradation Due to Pre-Loading Effects in Brittle Solids

Performance of a Steel Tank Founded on a Marine Clay
For tanks on soft clays, the soil is often preloaded before tank construction to increase bearing capacity and minimize post-construction settlement. In the case history described here,...

Performance of Three Large-Diameter Oil Tanks on Soft Clay
Preloading using a clay surcharge at the proposed locations of 3 large-diameter steel oil storage tanks founded on a 20-m thick stratum of soft Nile-delta silty clay produced about 1.5...

Site Improvement for a Steel Mill Complex

The Design of a Reclamation Scheme by Preloading

Diastolic Function Using 3-D Echo Reconstruction and Finite Element Analysis: Applications for Study in Animal Models and Patients
We have initiated animal experiments using three-dimensional reconstruction of echocardiographic recordings and finite element analysis to evaluate the effects of alterations in preload,...

In Situ Tests on a Florida Peat
A geotechnical exploration program at a site predominated by surface peats has been performed. The study encompasses the performance of in situ field tests and laboratory soil tests. Field...

Shallow Foundations for Tall Structures in Florida
The use of shallow foundation systems with measurable but tolerable settlement of major building complexes constructed in the Miami, Florida area is demonstrated by three case histories,...

Damping as Measure of Damage in Composites
The increase of damping with damage induced by static and fatigue loading of a glass fiber reinforced composite has been measured and is shown to be greater than the corresponding decrease...

Bottom Supported Terminal— Dravo Preload Concept

Settlements Beneath Preload Test Fill
The construction of a regional sewage treatment facility in Dade County, Florida involved preloading a site underlain with loose sands and soft limestones. The treatment facility is situated...

State-of-the-Art Report on Air-Supported Structures
A structure with a structural system which is dependent on pressurization, either positive or negative, is termed a pressure preloaded structure. Most pressure preloaded structures intended...

Cable Spring Constants for Guyed Tower Analysis
In current procedures for the structural analysis of guyed towers the effects of the guys on the tower displacements are estimated by determining the guy force on the tower with the tower...

Foundation Soil Preload Saves $164,000
Soils in the lower Mississippi valley are highly compressible and present a challenge to structural foundation designers. Rather than support power plant structures on piles, one design...
