Cyclic Performance of Riveted Connections
As part of a larger experimental project on seismic performance of older steel frames, seven concrete-encased and unencased connections were tested. The specimens consisted of both riveted...

A Comparison of the Cyclic Performance of Bolted and Riveted Connections
As part of a larger project to investigate the performance of older steel frames, a comparative study of bolted and riveted T-stub connections was conducted. The study included connections...

New Interior Lining for Welded and Riveted Penstocks
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has 73 hydroelectric power facilities installed throughout its distribution system. Each of these facilities has at least one penstock,...

Fatigue and Fracture Evaluation of Riveted Bridge Members
Among the major concerns of bridge engineers today are the fatigue damages that have been accumulated in riveted members and the safety of riveted structures. Many of these structures...

Fatigue Evaluation of a Riveted Railroad Bridge
An 83 year old railroad bridge was analyzed for fatigue based on historical records such as the original schedules. Based on the number of cycles to date, corresponding to an effective...

Cold-Formed Steel Panels with Riveted Connections

Failure of Riveted and Forge-Welded Penstock
This paper describes the failure and repair of a 1920's vintage 78-in. (198-cm) diam, 1-1/4-in. (3.18-cm) thick riveted and forge-welded penstock. The failure occurred at...

Mechanical Connections for Structural Plastics
A survey of existing literature on mechanical connections of structural plastic components reveals a dearth of hard data available for civil engineering type materials. The largest body...

Fifty Years of Riveted, Bolted, and Welded Steel Construction
The last 50 yr have been a time of unprecedented structural developments with the advances in the structural fastening field playing an important part in these developments. Structural...

Fatigue Life Extension of Riveted Connections
The paper describes a fatigue test program that studied the effectiveness of rehabilitation by replacement of rivets with high-strength structural bolts in critical or fatigue-damaged...

Supplement to Bibliography on Bolted and Riveted Joints
This supplement presents abstracts of articles on mechanically fastened joints that have appeared since the publication of ASCE Manual No .48 which covered work up to September 1966. Altogether,...

Large Bolted and Riveted Shingle Splices
The results of two full-size simulated bridge joints of a chord member and splice on the Baton Rouge Interstate Bridge, a three-span cantilever truss bridge over the Mississippi River...

Bibliography on Bolted and Riveted Structural Joints: Committee Report
This is to announce publication of the Bibliography on Bolted and Riveted Structural Joints as ASCE Manual No. 48, edited by John W. Fisher and Lynn S. Beedle. Presented in this bibliography...
