Cyclic Behavior of Joints Between Steel Beams and Reinforced Concrete Columns
The design and behavior of composite beam-column joints for seismic design are reviewed based on the results of tests. Issues addressed include the strength, deformation, and toughness...

Rigid Beam-To-Column Connection Detail for Circular Composite Columns
Steel pipes with relatively thin wall thickness and filled with high strength concrete have been used in building construction. Some of the advantages of this type of column include eliminating...

Bulb-T and Glulam-FRP Beams for Timber Bridges
In this paper, we discusses the manufacturing, analysis, and testing of two glulam beam designers:(1) Southern pine bulb, and (2) yellow-poplar reinforced with pultruded fiber-reinforced...

Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Fatigue Crack Growth in HSLA-80 Steel Box Beams
An acoustic emission is a transient elastic wave generated by the rapid release of energy from a localized source within a material. There can be many sources of acoustic emission in a...

Tests of Full-Size Pretensioned AASHTO Beams with Debonded Strands
A summary of an experimental investigation dealing with the effects of strand debonding on the flexure and shear behavior of simply supported pretensioned AASHTO beams with a cast-in-place...

Recent Advances in 3D Non-Linear FE-Analysis of R/C and P/C Beam Structures
A new simple modelling of interface problems in non-linear FE-analysis of reinforced concrete (R/C) and prestressed concrete (P/ C) structures is presented. It consists in taking account...

Tests on Deep I-Shape Pultruded Beams

Timber Structures
This paper deals with three different curvilinear timber structures of moderate spans - 120 feet to 200 fee +/-. In each of the three cases cited, the roof deck and boundary members are...

Damage Prediction in Reinforced Concrete Structures under Cyclic Loading
Assessment of the stiffness, resistance and damage behaviour of reinforced concrete members under high cyclic loading due to earthquake actions must consider material nonlinear effects...

Study on Mechanical Characteristics of Light-weight Complex Structure Composed of a Membrane and a Beam String Structure
This paper aims at studying a new type of Beam String Structure, in which a membrane is used as finishing material. This paper reports on the mechanical characteristics of this structure,...

Active Control of Axial Forces in Beam String Space Frames
The present work discusses a formulation for active control of axial forces of strings in beam string structures to dynamically and/or statically reduce the responses, and proves both...

Study on Structural Characteristics of Air-Inflated Beam Structures
The purpose of this paper is to clarify the structural characteristics of nonlinear load-carrying behaviors of air-inflated beam structures in their finite deflection range and after wrinkles...

Morphology of Reciprocal Frame Three-Dimensional Grillage Structures
This paper is an introduction to the morphology of structures using the Reciprocal Frame (also known as Mandala Dach in Germany) which is a patented three-dimensional beam grillage structural...

RC Beam-Column Element for Nonlinear Frame Analysis
Recent studies have shown that beam-column finite elements that enforce equilibrium rather than compatibility along the element are better suited for the description of the strength and...

Optimization of Controlled Structures: Using H Theory
This paper presents the algorithm for the design of a controlled structure in which the structural and control systems are designed simultaneously. The problem is posed as an optimization...

An Assessment of the Joint Factor as Used in the Modified MEXE Method
The finite element method has been used to examine the joint factor in the modified MEXE method which is documented in the publications (BD21/93 and BA16/93) by the Department of Transport...

Removal of Bromate After Ozonation by Electron Beam Irradiation
Drinking water regulations related to disinfection, disinfectant by-product (DBP) control, DBP precursor removal and contaminated source water pre-treatment will become increasingly stringent...

Measurements of the Hydrodynamic Lift and Drag Forces Acting on Riprap Side Slope
Direct measurements have been made of lift and drag forces acting on a 20.1 mm spherical particle placed within the riprapped 1.5 H: 1 V side slope of a 10 m long channel which was protected...
