Columnless in Chicago
The United Center in Chicago is now home to the Bulls basketball team and the Blackhawks hockey team. The arena features luxury suites, a column-free interior and unobstructed views. An...

Form Finding Numerical Methods for Tensegrity Systems
The rigidification of Tensegrity Systems is related to selfstress states which can be achieved only when geometrical and mechanical requirements are simultaneously satisfied. This paper...

Deep Cuts and Ground Movements in Chicago Clay

Large Deformation Elastic Behavior of Low-Density Solid Foams
A strain energy function that describes the nonlinear elastic response of a three-dimensional open-cell foam is developed. A tetrahedral unit cell containing four half-struts that join...

Improved Importance Sampling Methods for Structural System Reliability Calculation
Improvements can be made to importance sampling by recognising some of the essential features of the time-independent structural reliability problem. Thus non-interesting regions in the...

Ultimate Strength and Deformation of RC Panels
In this study, twenty reinforced concrete panels have been tested under pure shear. Test results showed that the compressive strength of concrete strut was strongly affected by bond characteristics...

Space Truss Construction Studies
The ACCESS Shuttle Flight Experiment, designed to evaluate EVA for on-orbit assembly of erectable truss structure, is reviewed and principal results are summarized. In addition, two on-going...
