Optimal Control of Beam Vibration Suppression

Dynamic Analysis of a High Speed Transport Model by Using a Piecewise Continuous Timoshenko Beam Model
Conventional treatment of structural dynamic analysis and control is based on the finite element structural model. But such a treatment uses a very large number of elements which is usually...

An Inflatable Antenna for Space-Based Low-Frequency Radio Astronomy
Antennas for a low-frequency orbiting radio telescope must have minimal problems in deployment, a directional beam, and a wide-angle scanning capability. Inflatable antennas with deposited...

Application of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Columns in Tall Buildings in Earthquake Area
In this paper an outline is given of the background, the design concept, structural features, construction and economy of the concrete-filled steel tubular coumns of tall buildings in...

Recent Developments in Seismic Response of Composite Structures
Lack of sufficient data has limited a wider application of structures using mixed steel-concrete construction in seismically active regions. This paper summarizes some recent studies at...

One Peachtree Center: Atlanta Georgia
Presented in this paper are the architectural and structural concepts of One Peachtree Center built in the city of Atlanta. This 62-story tall building has changed the downtown skyline...

One Ninety One Peachtree and NationsBank: Composite Additions to the Atlanta Skyline
The structural design of two composite buildings in Atlanta is described in this paper. A composite exterior partial tube was used in one case and a composite super-column system was utilized...

Comprehensive Reliability Analysis of Prestressed Concrete Beams
Using second moment methods, the reliability with respect to several limit states for seventy three prestressed concrete beams is assessed. These beams that are extensively used in the...

Behavior of RC Beams under Sustained Load
Experimental results of eight reinforced concrete beams under 3-month's sustained load, with the ratio of shear span to depth equal to 2.5, are reported. It is shown by tests that the...

Local Buckling of Pultruded FRP Beams: Theory and Experiment
A continuing experimental and theoretical investigation of the local compression flange buckling of commercially produced pultruded fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) beams is briefly described...

Moment-Rotation Behavior of Pultruded Beam-to-Column Connections
Presented are experimental details and results of five tests carried out to study the moment-rotation behavior of flange cleated connections for frames of pultruded members. The full-sized...

Response of Stressed Timber T - and Box-Beam Bridges
The objective of this study is to establish the strength, stiffness, and transverse load distribution factors of stressed timber T-, Bulk T-, and Box-beam bridge systems. To achieve the...

Natural Decay Resistance of Glued-Laminated Beams
The natural decay resistance of untreated Douglas-fir heartwood specimens sampled from glued-laminated beams was evaluated using a modified agar plate test modeled after the European Standard...

Externally Stiffened I-Beam to Box-Column Connections
This paper is concerned with I-beam to Box-column connections stiffened externally. Experimental and theoretical findings on full-scale connection models are highlighted. The performance...

Creep Analysis of Composite Steel-Concrete Members with Deformable Connectors
The long-term analysis of composite steel-concrete beams with elastically deformable connectors is presented. The basic integro-differential equation governing the problem is solved by...

ATLSS Connections with Moment Capacity
ATLSS Connections are a family of beam-to-column connections which utilize the self-aligning feature of a specially designed connector and are developed for possible use in an automated...

High Strength Shotcrete and Concrete on the SSC Project
This paper addresses the technical aspects related to the use of high strength shotcrete and concrete on the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project. 7,000 psi shotcrete and 8,000...

Load Carrying Capacity of SPC Composite Column
This paper reports the result of beam column test of a new type composite columns. High-strength precast-concrete panels (hereafter denoted as PCa-panels) are fixed to the steel square...

Dynamic Response of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete
Extensive research has been done on the static properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete, but very little on the dynamic properties. A total of 20 beams was tested. The steel fiber...

Cyclical Behavior of Welded Steel Shear Studs
Four specimens of composite steel and concrete beams were experimentally tested to obtain the cyclical behavior of the welded steel shear stud. This information may be used for the analysis...
