Mathematical Modelling of Intermediate Trusses

Reaching for the Sky
Tapei 101—soon to open its doors as the world's tallest building—will resist devastating typhoons, earthquakes, and sway with an ingenious system of outrigger trusses, supercolumns,...

Advances in Analytical Modeling of Torsional Members
The basic formula for calculating the torsional strength of reinforced concrete members was developed by Rausch (1929) using the space truss concept. Unfortunately, Rausch's equation may...

A New Identity
By repairing and relocating steel trusses, replacing deteriorating approach spans, and replacing what, at the time of its construction, was regarded as a daring concrete truss, engineers...

Wide Open
The retractable roof of the stadium being built for the Arizona Cardinals will be the first in the United States to operate on an incline, and the extraordinary trusses that support it...

Metamorphosis
Ranked as one of the 15 tallest buildings in New York, the headquarters of the Bear Stearns Companies, Inc., is a 45-story skyscraper that is 815 ft (248 m) tall. Replacing an existing...

The Inside Story
A full-scale renovation of the interior of Oklahoma City's Civic Center Music Hall required shaving much of the depth from two trusses under load conditions, installing new...

Ties to Excellence
The new Exhibition Center London (ExCeL) on the north side of the Royal Victoria Dock in London is just one of many structures altering the Docklands' landscape. The roof...

Box Girder Balancing Act
On November 18, 1999, cranes lowered into place the last of 202 precast concrete segments that form the main span of the new Sagadahoc Bridge, a $46.6 million crossing that boasts the...

Branching Out (Available in Structural Engineering Special Issue only)
The Cologne/Bonn Airport in Germany is currently undergoing its biggest construction project to date: a $200 million, five-story addition. Close and productive collaboration between the...

Space Truss
The International Space Station will be more than 310 ft (94 m) long when it is completed sometime in the next decade. The backbone of the structure is a hexagonal truss system that will...

The Viable Alternative
The Benicia-Martinez Bridge is a high-level, welded deck truss bridge that carries Interstate 680 over the eastern end of the Carquinez Strait near San Francisco. To bring the bridge into...

Golden Gate Update
A comprehensive seismic retrofit is under way to ensure that San Francisco's 2.74-km-long Golden Gate Bridge will remain in operation even after a maximum credible earthquake...
