The papers in this book represent deverse topics in structural engineering. In design of beam-columns by the AISC interaction equations, it is demonstrated that an inadequacy exists when the Stress Equation is more critical than the Stability Equation. Interaction diagrams are presented for unsymmetrically reinforced concrete columns. The history behind the working stress and the strength design of reinforced concrete members is analyzed leading to a rational formatting of design procedure. The behavior and use of advanced cementitious products, such as low cement high strength concrete, polymer concrete, fiber reinforced concrete, cement stabilized fly ash, are presented. A procedure is presented to detect an unanticipated source of vibration during a vibration investigation. The foundation design for the elevated guideway of the Detroit Downtown People Mover has large loads and stringent settlement criteria. An automated storage and retrieval system and an automated guided vehicle system are applied to a central maintenance facility.
