Regal Crossing
The 475 m long, asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge recently constructed in Bangkok at the behest of the king of Thailand features gold-colored stays, a sleek, enclosed deck structure, and...

Nonlinear Seismic Response of Asymmetric Systems

Seismic Control of Asymmetric Structures

Effect of Bed Roughness on Net Sediment Transport by Asymmetrical Waves

Solving Asymmetric Network Equilibrium Problems with Genetic Algorithms

Energy Based Approach to Earthquake Response of Asymmetric Systems

Computational Experiments with a Combined Traffic Assignment and Control Model with Asymmetric Cost Functions

Validation of a Model for Cross-Shore Sediment Transport

Lateral Buckling: A Comparison of AISC-LRFD and Eurocode 3
The nominal moment capacity of laterally unsupported, doubly-symmetric, steel I-beams are computed and compared using the AISC-LRFD and EC 3 design recommendations. A review of the EC...

A League of Their Own
New baseball stadiums in Cleveland and Arlington, Tex., opening in April 1994, combine the nostalgia of traditional ballparks with state-of-the-art site planning and structural engineering....

Hydrodynamic Processes on the Lower Shoreface of the Dutch Coast

Evaluation of US Seismic Code Provisions for Asymmetric-Plan Systems
The effects of plan asymmetry on the earthquake response of code-designed, one-story systems are identified with the objective of evaluating how well these effects are represented by torsional...

A Galerkin Method for the Convection—Diffusion Equation Using Asymmetric Weighting Functions
A variation of the Petrov-Galerkin method of solution of a partial differential equation is presented in which the weight function applied to the time derivative term of a one-dimensional...

Surface Flows Over Intertidal Marshes
A marsh-flow measuring device has been designed to quantify the flow across the marsh surface. The fluorometric technique by tracking the visible substance (Rhodamine red dye) applied...

Free Vibration Analysis of Asymmetric Buildings
A simple procedure for free vibration analysis of asymmetric buildings is presented. This method assumes that each floor is a rigid diaphragm with three degrees of freedom (two lateral...

Tide- and Wind-Driven Flushing of Boston Harbor, Massachusetts
The flushing of Boston Harbor, a shallow, tidally dominated embayment with little fresh water input, is investigated using a depth-averaged model. The modeled tidal currents exhibit strong...

Differential Motions in Sedimentary Valleys
The differential motions (strains), induced in sediment-filled valleys due to incident seismic waves, are investigated. The response of a two-dimensional model of an asymmetric wedge-shaped...

Set-Down in a Tidal Embayment
A mean water level in tidal bays and estuaries that is higher than the ocean mean water level (set-up) is a fairly common occurrence. Set-down of the mean water level can be shown to be...

Vortex at Hydraulic Intakes with Asymmetric Approach Flows
The formation of vortices at intakes can disrupt normal operating procedures and damage hydraulic machinery. Asymmetric approach flow and a protruding pier (normal wall) contribute to...
